Becoming an Entrepreneur at 14


My name is Cindy and i started my own business at 14.

Growing up i’ve always love doing makeup, I would always steal my mom’s makeup and play around with it. When i turned 11 i started wearing makeup and it just made me feel pretty. Throughout the years i worked my way with makeup and started using more and more. When i turned 14 i started getting into eyeshadow, One time i decided to post my eye look and everyone started texting me saying how much they loved it and if i can do their makeup. I was surprised because as my first time doing my eyeshadow so many people liked it.

I always knew makeup was my passion, I finally decided to make myself a page and i promoted it and i had so much support from my friends and parents. I started to get clients and i was nervous to receive them  because they were booking me for actually events and i didn’t want to mess up, at the end of my makeup sessions they always loved their makeup but i always thought i myself that i could’ve do better. I started saving up my money i would get from doing makeup and i was able to pay things off for my parents, myself and anything i needed.

When i turned 17 i decided to start a new business! it took me a while to papare. after a new year on February I started doing chocolate covered strawberries and more treats. my friends and family were the first people to order from me, I made my instagram page and i started getting following really fast and people were promoting me and i started to get my orders and my reviews are so good! People love my treats. Sometimes i could get stressed out because they don’t always come out good and i have to restart but i’ve never giving up.

It’s been 4 years since i started doing makeup and 1 month since i started making treated! I’m proud of myself for being able to have 2 businesses at a young age and making my own money too. Anything is possible and don’t give up on what you love!
