On today’s show, recorded in our mobile podcast studio storytella, I sit down with Tiffany Tanaka, of Petite Peso. A creative entrepreneur that’s Passionate about Creating businesses that are true to her experience, culture, and how she views the world. =

Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. Tiffany grew up watching her lawyer parents do things their way. But it was watching her dad leave law to open up a golf shop, which she lovingly calls “a hip pawn shop” that would really influence Tiffany’s future entrepreneurial moves. Although she grew up wanting to be a dentist, She moved to SAm Francisco for art school to study design and fashion. =

When she returned home, she realized there weren’t many fashion careers on the Island so instead she used the internet to her advantage and opened her first business, an eBay store that she’d run for six years. Selling everything from Vintage pennies, breast pumps, cars to nike SBs.
