Due to one girl's wish for a simple white Jeep for her 16th birthday, a multi-million dollar jewelry company was born.

To me, those two facts don't quite seem to add up (or maybe my logic is just blinded by my jealousy). Bella Weems, founder of Origami Owl, started her company with $350 of birthday money in her pocket and her Jeep-dream in mind. When Weems' parents matched the $350, and as Bella enlisted her friends as some of Origami's first buyers, she became one of the youngest entrepreneurs in the business.
