Chloe Weinthal, 20, dropped out of Year 12 to launch Sahara Soul and is now making $12,000 a month

A self-taught businesswoman who dropped out of high school at the end of Year 11 is now making $12,000 a month with her range of cruelty-free tan.

Chloe Weinthal quit her job as a retail assistant at clothing label Kookai to launch a vegan tanning label at the tender age of 17 in February 2018. 

The teenager from Wanneroo, a northern suburb of Perth, had no experience in business or cosmetics – just a serious passion for fake tan.

Just over two-and-a-half years later, Sahara Soul ships hundreds of orders from its Melbourne factory to customers around the world and has earned Ms Weinthal, now 20, upwards of $90,000 in the past year.
