Young Web entrepreneur starts consulting business to help self-employed

Tyler Kraupp
Kraupp is no stranger to self-employment. He started his first company at the age of 16. Now 22 and with a college degree in hand, Kraupp of Idaho Falls has launched a new online business called Knowble,  offering guidance to start-up companies and freelancers as they deal with the challenges of self-employment.

Knowble -- a conflation of "knowledge" and "noble" -- relies on a network of expert business mentors from around the United States offer customized advice on such topics as marketing, branding, pricing, inventory, taxes, client relations, pricing and contracts. For a monthly membership fee, clients have unlimited access to this team of online experts. The mentors represent a range of fields, including web design, marketing, and writing. 

"I'm excited to launch Knowble as a social entrepreneurial venture," Kraupp said. "All of our mentors are committed to helping small business owners."

"I remember the position I was in and my lack of business knowledge," he said. "I didn't know how to get clients, work with contracts, or how to report essential tax information. These are just some of the things we can assist with, all online. If a business owner has a specific challenge or question, our mentors can give them some direction and resources and hopefully educate the new business owner to success."
