On 7th of November, local entrepreneur Aaron Mc Mahon came to visit our Leaving Certificate Business class to tell us about his business Rua. Here is my review of how the visit went.
Aaron’s Mother set the business up 16 years ago and originally named it Café Rouge. Once Aaron and his sister took over they decided to change the name to Rua.
Aaron told us that dedication and hard work is essential to be a successful entrepreneur. He presented us with 12 essential points from his past experience which he found essential to help him succeed. The point I found most interesting and important was “that the customer is king”. Without customers the business will not function and ultimately fail. I found Aaron’s visit very helpful for helping me with my Leaving Cert Business and future predicaments.
