Her company’s motto, as noted by the official site, is “buy a bottle, save a bee.”
Dedicated to using her platform for good, Mikaila donates a percentage of the profits to local and international organizations fighting hard to save the honeybees.
The sky is certainly not the limit for her.
In 2011 she scored an 11 million deal with Whole Foods and her incredible story reveals that she has been putting in work since the age of four!
It all started when she made lemonade for a children’s business competition in Austin (Texas), using her Granny Helen’s recipe for flaxseed lemonade.
The product was a success and jump-started her career.
Daymond isn’t the only celebrity backing her business.
Former Texans running back Arian Foster is leading a group of former and current NFL players to invest in the lemonade company.
The group includes: Glover Quin, Duane Brown, Jonathan Grimes, Omar Bolden, Bobby Wagner, Darius Slay, Sharrick McManis, EJ Manuel and Malik Jackson.
They have all joined together to put up $810k for Mikaila’s Me & the Bees Lemonade company.
Foster told The Houston Chronicle that supporting small black businesses is important to them:
“We look for companies that match our main focus of developing a good product, but are also good people and do it for the right reasons.
It’s more than about money to us. We believe that investing in small black businesses is extremely important.”
