Sis­ters do­ing it for them­selves

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Best Weekend - - FRONT PAGE -

is­ters Saryne and Rochele Hanna are each other’s big­gest sup­porter — even when they drive each other crazy. Like most sis­ters, they haven’t al­ways been so close. As teenagers they pre­ferred to hang out with their own friend­ship cir­cles. And they had some im­pres­sive fights grow­ing up. Saryne once broke Rochele’s arm and Rochele stuck chew­ing gum in Saryne’s hair. But a shared pas­sion for food and the chance to so­cialise more when they’d both turned 18 strength­ened their re­la­tion­ship. Now in their mid-20s, they’re in­sep­a­ra­ble: liv­ing, work­ing and hol­i­day­ing to­gether. The pair say the In­sta­gram food page they launched four year ago, Eat­ing Up with the Han­nashi­ans, shows how well they work to­gether. Last year they quit their jobs to launch a hand­bag busi­ness. Younger sis­ter Jazmin, 23, will join them in the ven­ture later this year. “I think we ac­tu­ally al­ways did want to work with each other. We both al­ways knew we wanted to be our own bosses, we’re lead­ers, the three of us have al­ways been lead­ers,” Saryne says. Rochele adds: “It is very fun work­ing to­gether but I feel like we do lit­tle things to an­noy each other, like ev­ery sib­ling. Saryne is a bit slow at do­ing things, I’ll ask her to do some­thing and when she does it takes 10 years and an­noys me.” But Saryne says the pros out­weigh the cons, in­sist­ing they each know the other is 100 per cent re­li­able, some­thing they didn’t find with friends they started the busi­ness with. Rochele agrees: “Peo­ple say don’t work with friends. It It’s s bet­ter with sist sis­ters. I’ve never had a prob­lem with Saryne. And it’s showed us o our morals are so alike, ou our main goal was neve never money, we wanted to leave our jobs and be our own bosses, that wa was the big­gest th thing driv­ing us. u We’re very in synch.” Like all sis­ters they can get on each other’s nerves, n but are al­ways quick to make up.
