Lets take a minute to shoutout Miss Mikaila Ulmer. The 11-year-old business owner is showing the world just how Black Girls Rock!
Mikaila Ulmer appeared on Shark Tank and won $60,000 for her lemonade business, BeeSweet. Now she has signed a contract with Whole Foods to sell her lemonade in 55 stores across four states. The lemonade, which is a family recipe from her Great Granny Helen, is made with flaxseed and local honey. On her website, Mikaila tells the story of how her parents encouraged her to come up with a product for a Children’s Business competition and while brainstorming for an idea she got stung by two bees in a week. The bee stings sparked an interest to learn about bees and what they do. At the same time, Great Granny Helen, had sent her family cookbook. Put the two together and Mikaila got her great idea.
Congratulations Mikaila! Continue to shine!
