A Multi-Millionaire at 11 After Starting A business At Age FOUR

Mikaila Ulmer was handed a tatty cookbook by her great-grandma when she was just four and starting creating her own lemonade. By the time she was 11, Whole Foods paid $11million (£9m) to stock her drink

A teenage girl has explained how she turned over millions every year with a lemonade business she got started on when she was four-years-olds.

Mikaila Ulmer began creating her drinks after receiving an old cookbook from her great-grandma.

The 17-year-old, from Texas, US, had earned $11million before her 12th birthday - and he company has continued to grow ever since.

Finding a 1940s recipe for flaxseed lemonade, she got to work and added a twist of honey which proved to be crucial as the drink took off.

She secured a mega money deal from Whole Foods back in 2016 to sell her Me & the Bees Lemonade and even before she turns 18 her product was stocked in 1,500 stores across America.

On her website, she says: “I decided to give her beloved lemonade a new twist by adding honey from bees, instead of only sugar.

“That's how Be Sweet Lemonade was born!

“However, we had to change the name due to a copyright issue so we decided to call it Me & the Bees Lemonade because we give a percentage of sales to help save the bees.

“We are now celebrating more than 10 years in ‘buzzness!’”

The girl started bottling it up when a local pizza shop asked if they could stock it for their customers.

Last year, she offered some important advice to any person looking to get their business off the ground.
