Less than three years ago, Briony Gorton was a part-time shop girl, and bored student, so she decided to be her own boss.

Now, at the age of 23, she is the proud owner of a swimwear and apparel company that has turned over more than $650,000 and made 20,000 sales after an investment of not more than $ 100 to start.

Gorton’s business, Talliah Rose, was launched in her mother’s kitchen and is now a celeb favourite popular with the stars in the U. K. as Amber Davies of “Love Island” and “The Only Way Is Essex star Amber Turner.

Gorton, of Burnley, in Lancashire, England, has bought two Range Rovers with the cash that they made, as well as a Mini convertible for her mother, and is now renting a four-bedroom house.

She told Fabulous Digital: “I’m on my way to running my first million before I turn 25. I turned £ 100 in 100,000 pounds in a six months when I was 21. It is amazing, when I look back I think to myself, ” I’ve actually done in order.'”

“In the new year I’m going to design my own house and build from scratch,” she added. “That will be great, but legally I have to wait until I have self-employed for three years to do it.”

Gorton, who used to buy cheap clothes on eBay and sell them for profit as a teen, always wanted to be an entrepreneur in spite of the teachers say that they would “amount to nothing.”

“I always got C’s and the odd B, I was never particularly clever,” she admitted. “When I was in year 10 or 11, I remember my director saying if I don’t buckle down I would amount to nothing, but I always knew I was going to do well for myself. I studied Fashion Buying and Merchandising at Manchester Met, I have really enjoyed it, but I remember thinking, ‘I’m here to learn about working for someone else,'” she added.

“I knew that if I put my mind to it then I could do it all on my own, so in the summer of 2016 I designed an orange bikini top and [dotted] bottoms.”
