For many years people tried to correlate the entrepreneur’s age with the ultimate success of their startup. Every day we came up with different business ideas but we always think that now is not the right to start our own business. We think that we need more, education and experience to do any business.
Is there any ideal age to launch a business? If we look at different studies the answer is ‘yes’. But in the corporate world age is nothing but a number. You are never too young to be the boss.
This 13-year old girl proved that you can start a business at any age. It doesn’t matter whether you are a nine-year-old or ninety years old. The only thing matter is your business idea. If you think that you have an idea and you have potential then start your business.
Hannah Grace, a 13-year old girl is the founder of ‘BeYOUtiful’, a health and beauty brand. With her determination and hard work, she proved that age is just a number.
She was only 11 months old when her parents took her to the hospital. They have no idea at that time that what’s wrong with their daughter.
Their confusion turned to shock when they came to know that she has Type 1 diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes is the condition when a child’s body stopped producing the important hormone insulin.
Childs needs insulin to survive. There is no cure for Type 1 Diabetes in children but it can be managed with care. Hannah’s parent’s life turned upside down and they continue striving to keep their daughter alive.
At that time they didn’t realize that it wouldn’t be insulin that kept her alive but her tenacity and strength that would cause her to strive, not just survive.
Hannah has shown a strong determination when she grew from infancy to childhood.
Her father often told her that she would be a ‘CEO’ or ‘Entrepreneur’ in the future if she used her energy for good. His instinct turned true.
On New Year Eve 2016, when Hannah and her family visited the beauty brand her father gave her the challenge to make the same product she wanted to buy from the store and even sell that product herself.
She accepted the challenge and started working on her favorite health and beauty product. She started researching the ingredients and later in the week she started making her own bath bombs.
In a few weeks, her products were selling in a local gift shop. Not only this she started selling them online and in retail outlets.
The little girl has donated over $5000 to various charities and has committed to donating 20% of all web sales to JDRF.
She calls her brand ‘BeYOUtiful’ because she believes that you don’t have to be anybody else to be beautiful, you can just Be YOU.
