I started a side hustle to distract me from devastating breakup – now I’m a millionaire | The Sun

AFTER going through a bad breakup, this woman set her sights on creating a successful business – and is now worth millions.

Alice Robert began her side business while going through her split – after having a "vivid dream" urging her to do it.

The Aussie student has always been passionate about jewellery, and previously ran a jewellery stall with her mum in Bondi while she was a teenager.

Alice aimed to create a jewellery collection to sell on the side that was style-conscious, affordable and waterproof.

She told 7Life: "I called it The Littl. I wanted to make little, dainty pieces of jewellery and I chose the weird spelling so it would stand out."

Her original collection featured only ten jewellery pieces, which proved to be a hit – she made over £1500 in her first month.

Soon her sales were doubling each month, and she spent her time in the classroom messaging influencers to wear her pieces.

And her jewellery has rave reviews thanks to it's gold finish, which doesn't tarnish and is "great for sensitive skin".

Thanks to her side hustle venture, Alice is now a millionaire, and rakes in £500,000 each year thanks to her gorgeous jewellery.

One reviewer praised the ability to wear the pieces at the gym and while swimming: "It's perfect for lazy girls!"

Another woman shared how she's made £1.5million by selling her jewellery pieces on Etsy.

Ashley Bostwick, 34, from Orlando, has hit seven figures after launching her Etsy shop Wander and Lust Jewelry in 2014. 

Ashley said that her success in sales was down to identifying rings that weren’t common on the site, such as “moonstone” rings – which is one of her bestsellers. 

She advised: “Look at what influencers are promoting, what's hot on Pinterest, in magazines, in online publications, and on TikTok.”
