Success Story of Bella Maria, known as BELLA in Canada

BELLA in Canada

Introducing the Success Story of Bella Maria, known as BELLA in Canada, who embarked on her entrepreneurial journey in 2017 and has since become a symbol of resilience and success.

Bella’s story began in 2015 when she faced the challenges of job loss, relying solely on her husband for support. The turning point came in 2017 when, during a tough period for her family, Bella decided to sell her old bags and clothes on Facebook Marketplace to make ends meet. This experience led her to discover the world of buy-and-sell, transitioning from Facebook Marketplace to the Poshmark App.

In 2020, amidst the pandemic and expecting a child, Bella found herself without a job. Undeterred, she returned to her passion for selling designer bags through live selling on Facebook. The business flourished, and Bella established partnerships with renowned shipping companies DHL and LBC, enabling her to ship her products nationwide and internationally to both individual buyers and resellers.

Bella’s live selling sessions on Facebook, coupled with her vlogging skills, garnered a substantial following, reaching hundreds of thousands of engaged viewers.

Her product range expanded to include coveted designer bags and accessories from brands like Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Coach, Guess, and Tory Burch. Additionally, she diversified her offerings to include a variety of Filipino foods such as BBQ, Hotdogs, Siomai, Hopia Batangas, Pastillas, and more.
