Meet Ferrell Fisher of Tyler, the owner of Lauren Ferrell Designs.

“I started my business my senior year of high school. Making jewelry was always something that my mom and I did for fun, just as a hobby,” Fisher said.

She began weaving the hobby into helping others by handmaking jewelry to pay for her mission trip to Haiti.

“I started out giving back to the mission that I worked with in Haiti, and we still support them,” Fisher said.

After the trip, she realized she could use her passion for a purpose. As she still helps Haiti, Fisher also gives back to her hometown.

“If you’re even thinking about starting a business like go for it, definitely go for it, because you never know where that could take you,” Fisher said.
