Today we’d like to introduce you to Mariyah and Madison Moore. Them and their team share their story with us below:
Mariyah Moore (11) and Madison Moore (10), the founders of Sister Sister Sweets, are two sisters who started a lip gloss business in September 2019. Growing up, the girls were inseparable. Everyone thought they were twins. As they grew older, they started taking an interest in other activities and wanted to create something that would keep their bond strong. They have worked countless hours to perfect their gloss using natural oils. They published their first children’s book, Sisterhood Equals Success, and it’s available on Amazon.
Its mission is to promote sisterhood, in which its slogan, Sisterhood Equals Success, was created. By promoting sisterhood, they hope to encourage young girls to start a business, encourage each other, and create healthy coping skills and positive self-esteem. Aside from being young entrepreneurs and scholar students, the girls enjoy giving back to their community by hosting toy drives, donating to the Ronald McDonald house, and hosting an annual back-to-school block party. The sister duo continues to strive for greatness with an amazing support system.
Can you talk to us about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
The journey has been an experience. We never imagined that creating lipgloss could lead to publishing a book. The road has been bumpy with a few difficulties. We struggled to find the perfect lip gloss base and measurements. We also like to work at different times. After compromising and creating a schedule to help prioritize and balance school, extra-curricular activities, and our business, everything works out well.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
Our business is more than a brand. It’s a lifestyle. We want to encourage other girls that it’s okay to be themselves and start a business. We talk differently; we promote our business differently and enjoy everything we do, from making lip-gloss to picking out purses. We promote sisterhood daily by complimenting others, supporting others, and encouraging them. Girls can be mean and messy, and we want to eliminate the mean girl cliques. There’s no such thing as competition. Is can accomplish more if we collaborate and work together.
Is there anyone you’d like to thank or give credit to?
First are our parents; they fought long and hard about us starting a business. They said we didn’t need any money because they provided us with everything we wanted. After we stopped arguing, we started compromising and working through our differences. They agreed that the business was more than a way to generate money for Starbucks. It keeps us motivated daily. It’s helping us grow as sisters. They help make gloss, drive us to drop-offs, and do simple post office runs—our family and friends (we call them our sisters and sweethearts). No matter what we do, they will support and show up.
