When you were 11 years old, what were you doing?
Odds are, you were probably on the web, playing baseball or video games, not brokering million dollar business deals.
Meet Mikaila Ulmer .The former Shark Tank contestant turned a $60,000 investment she received after appearing on the show into a huge deal that will place her ‘Bee Sweet’ Lemonade into 55 Whole Foods locations in her home state of Texas, as well as Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, and Oklahoma.
Yeah buddy.. we were doing it all wrong.
The young business mogul got the idea for her million dollar business at the age of four when she was stung twice in one week by honeybees. “It was painful. I was terrified of bees,” she told NBC in an interview.
Rather than let her fear dominate her life, her parents counseled her to research bees and find out more about them. Using her great-grandmother’s family lemonade recipe and sweetening it with honey from local producers instead of sugar. She has helped spread awareness for bees while providing a tasty and healthier alternative for everyone.
I know this product will be a huge success.
