When Jonathan Bryson’s family was preparing for his grandmother’s 90th birthday celebration, Jonathan wanted to do something special. Noticing the countless pictures his grandmother had socked away, he decided to produce a video featuring the photos. “After that a lot of people began asking me about it,” says Bryson. “I started doing it for them as side projects and turned it into a business.”

He launched Simple Last Video Production in 2007, specializing in filming and editing video for parties, special events, and other special occasions. The company is growing through word of mouth, and in 2008 Bryson generated $2,300 in revenue. Now a sophomore in college, he’s taking advantage of the various events and organizations and expects to bring in $7,000 in revenue by the end of 2009.

“In entrepreneurship there’s no one to really push you. Here, you have to motivate yourself, but it’s easy because I’m doing something I really love,” Bryson says.
