A young entrepreneur who started his console repair and modifying business at just 16 years old, says he’s “the best” at what he does.
Cakes, balloons and a Minion mascot were waiting for guests at Console Clinic Ltd in Tadworth Parade, Elm Park, two weeks ago, to signify the shop’s very first day, to the delight of director Kyle Weinberg.
After spending the past six years gaining more experience and creating a business plan, the 22-year-old is now the proud owner of his own shop.
He said: “I wanted to hold a fun event to mark the occasion and between 80-120 people came on the day so that was amazing.
“People should come to me, because I’m the best.

Console Clinic Ltd offers repairs, customisations, modifications and upgrades to past and present generation consoles, phones, tablets and other devices.
Kyle started off by offering his services just to his friends and family as a hobby but when the word got out and more people started asking him for help with their devices, he knew he could make a business out of it.
While studying business studies at college, Kyle shared a stall at the Stratford Computer Fair before moving to the empty unit in Elm Park.
Kyle said: “I don’t know why I started exactly, I just knew I enjoyed it and making people happy when their phones fixed or I pimped up their console.
“It’s a great feeling.”
