A teenage girl becomes a millionaire by selling lemonade

An American girl became the CEO of her own multi-million dollar company at the age of 11, after signing a deal to sell her lemonade.

And the girl named McKella Olmer, now 17, from Texas, created her own brand of lemonade and landed a sweet $11 million deal from Whole Foods in 2016.

McKella said she first came up with the idea for her company when she was four years old, after her grandmother gave her a cookbook, found a recipe for lemonade from flaxseeds and decided to give it a try. She then began selling them on a stand outside her home, noting that she had added her own touch to the recipe by substituting sugar for honey.

Makela reported that she got the idea of ​​using honey after being stung by bees twice and then her mother told her about the properties of bees, telling her that these insects are endangered and that their disappearance will affect both nature and humans.

Then Olmer realized that she wanted to be a social entrepreneur and not only make money, but also protect and keep bees.

The girl called her company "Me and the Bees", and in 2016, she entered into an agreement with retail chain Whole Foods for $11 million, and donated some of the money to organizations involved in saving bees.
