De's New Inspiration- 13-year old Leanna Archer

Photobucket
I remember when I was nine years old; the last thing I was thinking about was starting my own business. Shoot, I was too ridiculously busy causing mischief and watching TV. When I first read about this young girl, I was in awe. Leanna Archer started her own natural hair care/skin care line at the tender age of nine years old using an old hair recipe that had been passed down from her grandmother. When her parents wouldn’t help her she decided to just start mixing the products herself, but now at the tender age of thirteen, her parents have both quit their jobs, and work for her. Lol. Last year Leanna Inc grossed 100,000 dollars, not bad for a hair/skin care line that a 13 year old girl runs. I love the fact that these products are natural containing hair nourishing ingredients like avocado oil, hibiscus, rosemary oil and shea butter, but I also love the fact that this thirteen year old girl runs her own successful business, was nominated by Inc magazine as one of it’s top 30 under 30 entrepreneurs, and this last Thursday she became the youngest person ever to ring the bell of the Nasdaq. Oh, I also forgot to tell you, she travels the country as a motivational speaker as well. She believes kids will learn a lot faster from other kids. She’s amazing! Don’t I always tell you that you have to believe in yourself in order to make your dreams come true! Leanna Archer is such a great example of that.

Have you tried Leanna’s hair products?

Are you taking my advice and following your dreams?
