Meet Mikaila Ulmer. She’s an 11 year-old entrepreneur that just landed a million dollar deal with Whole Foods for her natural lemonade.
Ulmer was featured on the show ” Shark Tank” last when she she won $60,000 for her BeeSweet lemonade business. Ever since then, she’s taken off! Along with her mother, she decided to research bees to learn more about why bees are becoming endangered.

According to NBC, Mikaila Ulmer used her grandmother’s recipe to create the lemonade that will be sold in 55 Whole Food stores. In addition to her distribution deal with Whole Foods, she also has one with United Natural Foods.
In addition to being a student, Ulmer plans to lead workshops on how to save bees. She also wants to visit South Africa to teach little girls about being entrepreneurship.
