These days, our favorite stars are branching out of the entertainment industry and venturing into new prospects, one that involves unleashing their inner entrepreneurs. Like students and influencers who decided to work on their passion projects and launch their own businesses, several of today's young showbiz talents have also released their own brands. How young you are won't always determine how responsible, creative, persevering, and entrepreneurial you can be, after all.

These young celebrities show us a new side of them through their new business ventures:

Julia Barretto

In 2021, Julia launched The Juju Club, a lifestyle brand that embodies her own lifestyle. On coming up with a business that is in line with her personality, Julia says, "With The Juju Club coming out, I feel like that brand represents me as a whole and everything that I love and everything that says 'Julia.'" The Juju Club currently offers various items, including pouches, hair clamps, and sunglasses, in the cutest, most #aesthetic colors.
