How old were you when you started and where did your idea come from?
Clarissa founded Clarissa’s Storybook Castle 1/27/2021 at the age of 9. The idea came from realizing social media and screen time was taking the place of reading books. So I thought if I were to read books aloud daily it could help others to want to read more often.
What was the biggest mistake you made and what did you learn from it?
The biggest mistake I made was not realizing my potential and the importance of reading. I learned that if I can be a positive light in peoples homes then I will read my books aloud with honor, because I can help other learn and grow more confident with their future goals and aspirations.
What are your future plans for the business?
I plan to continue to grow and open the minds of children. I would love to eventually open a bookstore or start my own TV show that instills the importance of reading, self love and working on your goals.
Any advice for other girls starting a business?
Don’t take no for an answer. If you have a dream, pray about it and work hard everyday to achieve it.
