Veteran Turned Entrepreneur and Her Two Daughters Produce Products To Help The World Look Good And Feel Safe
Raquel Riley Thomas, an entrepreneur, has passed down the genes to her 14-year old daughter and her 11-year old daughter. Now all three are business owners and all three put a portion of their proceeds back into the community.
"I have been working in the beauty and fashion business for many years and the one thing I have learned is that today's women want simple, easy steps to their makeup routine," Raquel states.
Maria Raquel Thomas, a 14-year old entrepreneur owns Maria Raquel Thomas Cosmetics. She started with a lipgloss collection because of problems she had with her own lips. Now her line offers lip masks, lip scrubs and eyeshadows. She named her products with positive adjectives such as Beautiful, Dreamer, Adventurous, to encourage young women around the world to believe in themselves.
"When I was younger, I had a problem with my lips being chapped and brittle. My mom says to always come up with three solutions to every problem, so I took matters into my own hands and Maria Raquel Thomas Cosmetics was launched," she states.
A portion of her proceeds goes back into the community. She gives to Stand Up for Kids, a non-profit that focuses on combatting youth homelessness. She is the national ambassador for the non-profit. And in her down time, she builds robots and roller coasters.
Sophia "SJ" Thomas is an 11-year old tween chef and entrepreneur. She is the owner of SJ Savory Kitchen which includes a cooking wear line, a stylish and upscale 4-piece set. The set includes: A chef's apron, chef's hat, a pot holder and a oven glove. It comes in both kid and adult sizes because it was important to SJ to make sure families looked cooked together while cooking.
"My goal is to see families not only be safe cooking but to look good cooking also. I designed the set based on what I use myself when I am cooking for my family and friends!" Sophia states.
Sophia also gives back to the community. She gives to charities such as Victoria's Voice and No Kid Hungry.
All three ladies have been seen on morning shows and in print media.
