I became a millionaire at 20 and at 21 it was all gone - Minnie Dlamini Jones

Minnie Dlamini Jones has launched her skincare range called MD.

Dlamini Jones rose to stardom when she auditioned for Live Amp and now 10 years later she has launched a skincare range.

She joins Bongani Bingwa to talk about why she decided to launch a skincare range and how she started in the industry.

I got into the business and I realised that I needed to earn my stripes and figure out exactly what I liked.

Dlamini- Jones says she made her first million when she was 20 years old after she became the face of Legit.

I signed on to become the face of Legit, I got my own range and then I became a millionaire and at 21 it was all gone. I blew it and I can't even tell you what I bought. It was the biggest pay cheque I had ever received in my life and my financial education was terrible and I had no one there guiding me.

MD was something that I realised that I needed to do because you go into the business and the first thing you try to land outside of your job is that endorsement deal. I always wanted to go into the beauty industry and land an endorsement deal and it just didn't happen.

She says she then realised that she has built up a social media following and people are interested in what she has to do.

I decided to forget the endorsements and I created my own skincare range.
