This 11-Year-Old Just Landed A Multi-Million-Dollar Deal With Whole Foods
In my entire career of running lemonade stands as a kid, I think I made a total of 10 dollars -- maybe 12. I thought that was pretty good once you consider inflation and rising lemon prices.
Turns out, I'm pathetic compared to 11-year-old lemonade mogul Mikaila Ulmer, who recently landed a multi-million-dollar deal with Whole Foods to sell her product at 55 different locations.
How the actual f*ck did that happen? Well, a little while back, Mikaila launched BeeSweet, a flaxseed-based lemonade, which uses honey from local bees. Apparently, she had an encounter with a bee at a young age and was instantly fascinated.
Oh yeah, and she killed her pitch on "Shark Tank."
BeeSweet has a mission in mind, too, which involves reviving decimated bee populations. In an interview with NBC, Mikaila said,
She then went on to quote Albert Einstein because she's that much of a baller:
That fact is as real as the cold, hard cash Mikaila rakes in.
Damn! You go, Mikaila!
Please excuse me now while I quietly sob over my wasted potential.
