Corporate lawyer Alyce Tran had a dream to make an extra $50,000 from her fashion blog, The Daily Edited, which she co-founded with her friend Tania Liu. After an unsuccessful attempt to launch an online clothing line, the pair introduced their personalised accessories business, which today turns over more than $15 million a year – not a bad effort for an online start-up turned multi-million dollar brand in four years.

With less than $10,000 in savings, the pair started their online leather accessories label, which has become a global sensation.  Now Tran is channeling her energy into assisting budding entrepreneurs as the official judge of H&R Block’s Grants for Growth initiative.

The tax leader launched the initiative in April in a bid to support ‘up and coming’ entrepreneurs with twenty $10,000 grants up for grabs.

“$10,000 doesn’t sound like a lot, but when you’re running your own small business and you’re in those early days – every cent counts, and every helping hand is such a relief. I am honoured to be involved with this initiative as judge and hope to assist other small businesses in flourishing and pushing forward,” Ms. Tran said. Read more
