This past weekend, I had the opportunity of working on a project that is near and dear to the Business Minded Womens’ heart apart of our mission is supporting young entrepreneurs in their businesses. I was able to work with My Girlfriend’s House, a non-profit organization of a community of women supporting and empowering each other. I was honored to sit on a sharktank panel with 3 other professionals as 6 teen entrepreneurs pitched their businesses to us and they did an amazing job doing so!
HOWever, when I tell you this was not easy at all, IT WAS NOT EASY…AT ALL!
All of the young ladies ranged in age from 11-16, they all had great businesses and business plans, unfortunately, there could only be one winner.
One young lady stood out the most to us, she showed great confidence and knowledge of her price points and products.
The winner of the teen entrepreneur challenge was 12 -year -old, Miss Taylor
Harrell, president and founder of her boutique @beadzfrmtay, her business creates customized bracelets, ankle bracelets and waist beads. I see this young lady going far in her entrepreneurial journey!
Taylor and her mom were very excited and deserving as she was the winner of a prize package of $14,397 to support her college and future business endeavors, which included her doing a segment on WUSA channel 9 this past Monday morning!
She is being mentored through her business and we plan to update you all later on throughout Miss Taylor’s business journey. In the meantime, follow her on Instagram: @beadzfrmtay
