My Summer Adventures

As a young business entrepreneur, I have many passions. One is my favorite past-time activity, rock climbing! Here are my top reasons I find rock climbing so inspiring: 1. Fitness. Climbing is an amazing sport for building muscle, staying flexible, and conditioning. I'm always guaranteed to get a great workout every time. 2. Creativity. Climbing is for everybody, and because of this, styles depend so heavily on the climber. If you're short like me, you do a lot of dynos and high foot placements, but others may rely more on their flexibility, height, or grip strength. 3. Camaraderie. Climbers are...

Teaching Youth Financial Literacy is a Great Way to Celebrate Juneteenth

A Message From Our CEO   There are so many great ways to celebrate Juneteenth; from visiting Black museums to supporting Black owned businesses. I have done these activities in the past, and will continue to do them in the future. However, I’d like to encourage another way to celebrate Juneteenth. Teaching financial literacy through entrepreneurship is good for our youth and better for our entire community.  Studies show that students without a financial education are more likely to have low credit scores and other financial problems.  This impacts our ability to be free and independent and slows our opportunity to...

May the Fourth Bee With You

May the Fourth Bee With You

(Shared from the Healthy Hive Foundation) In a galaxy far, far away, bees are being sent to… Mars! While this might seem like a story from an alternate universe, over 3,500 bees have been to space since NASA began sending them there in 1982. So how and why did this expedition begin? Humans have been interested in Mars exploration and colonization for decades now. However, sustaining life on a foreign planet with a completely different atmosphere and environment definitely poses some issues. When you consider that the vast majority of the food we thrive on is provided thanks to pollinators,...

The Shark Tank Meets the Bee Hive!

The Shark Tank Meets the Bee Hive!

It was so cool to return to Shark Tank to update all my “bee-lievers” on Me & the Bees’ growth since I first appeared on the show back in 2015. As it has been a few years, I was excited to share all my new ideas and progress since the last time I saw the Sharks. We talked all about my business plans and I told them about the states I’ve expanded to and the flavors we’ve added. I’m so honored to have the chance to be on TV and spread our message! My hope is that the viewers of...

Happy National Family Day

Happy National Family Day

March 5th is a special day to celebrate as it’s National Family! I’m here visiting my grandparents in North Carolina this week and am reminded of all the reasons I’m so grateful to have a close-knit family. I love having a family-run business because it allows me to work with the people I love most, doing what I love: social entrepreneurship. I am so inspired by my parents, grandparents, and siblings who teach me the value of hard work and collaboration. Me & the Bees values family, and enjoying sweet things with the people who matter most. When asked about...

Stumped on Holiday Gift Giving? How About Gifts that Cost Nothing!

Stumped on Holiday Gift Giving? How About Gifts that Cost Nothing!

Giving gifts that cost nothing could mean everything to loved-ones. With costs going up, the stress of shopping, and environmental concerns, why not take a new approach and give meaningful gifts that cost little to no money? Here’s a start: An edited video. If you’re like me (and most Gen-Zers), you take a lot of photos. A lovely Christmas gift could be compiling the photos and videos of you and the gift recipient into a video and adding their favorite music. Both iPhones and Androids have built-in applications that do this automatically once you put the photos in an album....
