The JAGGAR International woman is a force to be reckoned with, she's driven and powerful beyond measure and through the JAGGAR International community, will take action to achieve all she desires and become all she believes she can be - and even more so, what the JAGGAR International world of you-fanatics, believes she can be.

THE FOUNDER

RHONNIE SNELGAR

Rhonnie started her first business at age 13, Mystic Moods - a business handcrafting beeswax candles which she sold door-to-door to raise money for a school trip to New Caledonia.

She caught the entrepreneurial bug and kicked things up a notch by partnering with commercial kitchens to on-sell their baked goods in her fundraising efforts. In addition to this, she cleaned houses, took on a paper route, created an sold themed gift baskets and even added 'Avon Rep' to her resume.  

She quickly developed a passion for entrepreneurship and spent her teen years writing business plans and researching potential business opportunities, fueled by her drive to success and the tunnelvision she gets when she has a goal in sight.
