When I was 20, I was so broke I lived solely off Mie Goreng and Doritos (the red packet of course, I’m no idiot).
Briella Brown, on the other hand, is an entrepreneur raking in $35k a MONTH from her online fashion rental business. Yes. You read that right. Briella’s business makes what some people do in a year every single flippin’ month. And she’s barely out of high school.
The bouncy Gen Yer pitched her business, Your Closet, to the Very Impressive panel of business experts on Shark Tank on Thursday night. Needless to say, her savviness and acumen caught everybody off guard.
While she still operates her business out of her parent’s home, the Manly local says she owns in excess of $200,000 worth of designer dresses ranging from size 6 to 12. All customers have to do is visit her website, select which dress they want for their event, pay a fee (typically 20% of the item’s RRP) and WHOOSH the dress is express posted to their house within a day. Customers are even given an addressed, paid-for parcel to send the dress right back WITHOUT EVEN HAVING TO DRY CLEAN IT.
