Let's get personal!
Before I started Naturally Granola, I did something very different!
My first company was called "Tiara's Jewels". And you guessed it, I made and sold jewelry! (I was very grateful to my parents by the way, I had the perfect name to start a jewelry line )
Tiara's Jewels started as a hobby when I was about 8 years old. This started as a hobby, I went with my grandmother every week to buy beads. And what started as a hobby became a business. When I was 12 I started ordering beads online in America, because of course they had a lot more options there than on Curacao. I was even allowed to sell the jewelry in my father's clothing store and at the age of 19 I organized my first jewelry exhibition! (I'm sorry the quality of smartphones wasn't that good back then...)
