Eleven-year old Mikaila rocks and she has receipts to prove it!
Mikaila is the founder and owner of Me & The Bees Lemonade (formerly Bee Sweet Lemonade). She has a contract with Whole Foods and other major retailers, but still sells her Lemonade out of her very own Lemonade stand locally. This little girl has accomplished more than many 3 times her age!
Encouraged by her parents to enter a children's business competition, and subsequently being stung by bees TWICE sparked Mikaila's interest in learning about bees and how they are important to our ecosystem.She inherited a recipe book from her great grandmother, which included a recipe for Lemonade. Naturally sweetened with local honey and flaxseed, Mikaila entered the competition and has since participated in many workshops and events.Not only does she have the mind of an entrepreneur, Mikaila already understands that in order to have a rich life, you must give back. Her company is committed to helping the honeybee population, and donates regularly to local and international organizations committed to the same.You can follow her journey on Facebook! Keep rocking, Mikaila!
