‘Chillin’ My Way to Success’ encourages kids to start a business that is fun and simple
It’s not every day that you find an eight year old interested in being ‘the Boss!” Kinyah Bean was challenged at an early age by her dad, Demetrius Braddock, to start a business by the age of ten.
She also found out that starting and stopping new hobbies could be expensive. At eight years old, when sharing her interest to take guitar lessons with her mom, Valerie Braddock, she was reminded of the family’s tight budget.
At the time, her mom was in law school. Kinyah decided that she would earn money to take the lessons by making lemonade with her grandmother’s recipe.
After the success of her original money making venture to earn extra money for hobbies, B Chill Lemonade – the business- started with one glass of lemonade in January of 2017, in Kinyah’s home in Flowood, Mississippi.(She is currently residing in Memphis, TN)
The first forty gallons of lemonade was amazingly squeezed by the tender hands of the young CEO. She said her mother gave her the task to see if she was really determined to commit to the lemonade business. Kinyah is proud to share, “I did it without complaining!”
She’s since enhanced the original recipe to make a variety of other flavors. www.bchilllemonade.com
Kinyah is the CEO of the company, her family has definitely agreed to join forces with her and take a shot at making B Chill Lemonade the best ever. They’ve got her back! One of her goals is to inspire others regardless of their age to make their dreams into realities. “I knew God gave me something to do to share with the world!, says Kinyah.’
She gets excited when other young people express an interest in starting their own businesses after they’ve listen to her speak. Kinyah also shares the importance of keeping honor roll grades and that her education comes first.
