Luv Aj, interview

At 14 years old Amanda (@LuvAj) interned at a local jewelry store.

At 15 she launched her own jewelry business, Luv Aj, which is now available in retailers worldwide and worn by dozens of celebrities.

You’ll hear Amanda discuss how she built a business while still in high school, the importance of continuous problem solving, and that everything you need to start is right in front of you.

“When it’s your baby and it’s something that you’ve built from the ground up and it’s something that you love it doesn’t even feel like work.” – Amanda Thomas
