How Sweet It Is!
For many of us, lemonade stands are our first experiences with real business. Whip up a jar of lemonade, camp out on the curb, and sell your drink for anywhere from 25 cents to a dollar a pop. Ah, the sweet smell of summertime.
But for Mikaila Ulmer, what started out as an idea for Lemonade Day, a youth entrepreneurial event in Austin, Texas, turned into so much more than your average lemonade stand.
The origins of her story are impressive enough, but what she went on to do with her idea just landed her a huge deal with Whole Foods across four different states. And that’s just the beginning!
