Like many of us, our favorite content creators and YouTubers also have dreams of opening their own business ventures, too. And aside from making content we excitedly anticipate on social media, some of them have put in the work to finally make their dream businesses a reality. Below, we list down eight influencers-slash-entrepreneurs and their respective business ventures:   

Rei Germar, Hazel Quing, Ry Velasco, and Jammy Cruz

Subscribers of any of content creators Rei Germar, Hazel Quing, Ry Velasco, and Jammy Cruz would know that they're super close friends IRL. So close, in fact, that they decided to start The Lula Club, which is "a community that encourages memory keeping." Currently, the brand carries cute disposable films in three different designs.
