There is a lot of good advices here already, almost nothing to add.

1. Always use ships with traits for particular jobs. If you need to mine - take a mining ship, if you need to fight - take a ship with combat bonuses. There are few exeptions, like "combat Venture", but that's too special cases.

2. Mining looks safe and stable for a newcommer, but it's profit is low. If you're looking for a way to make ISK, learn 'bout exploration, or, if you want to make your hands dirty, try faction warfare. If you still want to mine - ice harvesting is your best option.

And on that note....
Make sure to take the time to familiarize yourself with the scanning interface, your overview options and settings.
Keep local in an open window apart from your other channels.
Don't afk in space.
Don't use autopilot.

There are predators lurking out there, and they're not overconcerned with your age.
Not judging them so much as stating a fact of EVE.
Learn to fly smart so you can fly safe.

i sold the Tayra for 1m isks.. the venture is ok. but the cargo hold is small . i have the heron which has 400 hold and is higher in all stats compared to the venture. but im looking into a shio with 4-6 hard ports (2 mining and 4 for weapons, or 6 weapons if going to battle senario). i will try and a career mission while i wait for my brother to catch up with his character and skills.

my current ship the heron has 2 eps gausian lazers. for mining. what weapons would you suggest (i might get a venture to use for the career mission

I did the same thing when i first started the game hhaha (5 months ago) i was mining in a tayra which is actually a hauling ship not a mining ship (i think, i dont know many of the ships yet), go to your big bar on the left side of the screen ingame, the bar with lots of symbols running down it. now hover your mouse over each one of the icons and it will show a name for what it is, find something that says something about a list of ships, this is where it shows the ships that are in the game, when you open that, look at the top left of the screen and there should be about 10 or so symbols, representing different races in the game. hover over those until you find one called "ORE" (it willl tell you the names when you hover over them). that is where the section for ships designed for mining are :)

100% right. Know what ships your gonna work with and what they can do.

the only missions u could probably use the venture for would be the mining missions. You would have probably needed the Tayra to haul later, I use my main hauler all the time for hauling stuff to and from the market hub, like the ore or minerals you mine.

The venture comes with a 5k ore hold for mining, and a small hold for other things like salvage and such, and is bonused for mining. Keep your other ships for their roles and jobs, the venture is really geared more for mining.

I have all the other small ships for their certain roles. For you Ibis(free rookie ship), Bantam(healer if your in fleet ops), Heron(scanning and hacking, most exploration), Kestrel(general mission ship), Griffin(ECM ship), Condor(fast intercept, usually cheapest), Merlin(fighting ship, one of the strongest t1 figs says EVEUni). I have extra fast intercepters for different jobs, one for fast runs to the local trade hub for just small stuff, and one for fast salvage when it's spread across a wide area.

No cuts, no butts, no coconuts!

My only advice is:

Understand how the game is to be played. Not the mechanics but like what kind of attitude you should have towards it.

EvE is not about "immediate entertainment". Many find it "boring" after a while and i bet you will too when your fed up mining, the most boring of all activities. EvE is a long term commitment, a long term love relationship and very big part of it isnt even playing but learning it, thinking about it, reading about it, understand the mechanics, understand what is good for what and what not and why.

EvE is not a theme park, so expect every piece of entertainment needs to be created/approached by yourself. They game is not offering it to you on silver plate. EvE can be extremely joyful but you need to keep getting there by yourself. You gotta be willing to try stuff out, fail, try something else fail again until you've found out what is your cup of tea and what not.

Getting into a state where the game is really fun takes time and commitment and there is probably quite some frustration on the way. EvE differs people who either give up on failure, blame others, get angry and leave the bad experience behind OR the ones who keep trying because they want to learn and succeed in the end. You need to be person type 2 to get something out of EVE.

"EvE is real" ;)
