Inspired by her grandmother’s recipe book, she made her lemonade using flaxseeds and honey from local beekeepers instead of sugar. She started by setting up a lemonade stand in front of her house and she would sell her lemonade to passersby. Once her venture started growing, she even came on the business reality television show Shark Tank asking for financial investment to support her lemonade business ‘Me And The Bees’ and she received a $60,000 investment.
With the catchphrase “Buy a bottle, save the bees!”, Mikaila has donated 10% of the profits to charities that save bees ever since she started her venture. Now, she has released different flavours of her lemonades, infusing spices like ginger, mint, black cherry and pear. Her multi-million business led her to meet ex-president Barack Obama as well. That’s not all, she even has published a book telling the story of her journey as a young entrepreneur. Who could have thought that a glass of homemade lemonade could lead to such amazing things!
