— Mikaila Ulmer
Praise for Bee Fearless!
Daymond John, Shark Tank
"From running a multimillion-dollar business to making time for her schoolwork, Mikaila will awaken the go-getter in you. Bee Fearless inspires us all to dream like kids and pair our passions with our purpose."
Kirkus, starred review
"In sharing her story, this talented Black girl breaks down not only each opportunity and decision she and those who supported her had to make along the way, but also the lessons about business that she learned in the process, making this a manual as well as a memoir. Her growth is inspiring, her story is fascinating, and her wisdom is priceless for young entrepreneurs. Gift this to every aspiring and beginning entrepreneur; they will thank you."
John Mackey, Co-Founder & CEO, Whole Foods Market
“CEO Mikaila Ulmer is sure to inspire other entrepreneurs of all ages with her story about starting her business and how she infused purpose into it from the very beginning. The step by step business primer is really interesting. I especially enjoyed her personal stories about how Me & The Bees Lemonade has grown to national distribution, while never compromising its use of quality ingredients or their steadfast mission to save the bees. It’s refreshing to learn from such a young, accomplished social entrepreneur about her approach to running a conscious company.”
Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO and founder of LeanIn.Org
“Bee Fearless is equal parts memoir and business playbook—and exactly what tweens and their parents need right now. After a bee sting, a family lemonade recipe, and plenty of ingenuity, fifteen-year-old Mikaila Ulmer has sold more than a million bottles of her Me & the Bees lemonade. She is wise beyond her years and reminds us all that making a beeline to follow your business dreams is never a bad idea.”
Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft
“Mikaila is one of the most impressive entrepreneurs I’ve had the privilege to meet. Her ingenuity paired with her mission to save the honey bees is an example of how businesses can lead with purpose. By sharing her story and inspiring readers of all ages to pursue their dreams with passion, the world will be a better place.”
School Library Journal
“A memoir and how-to guide with heart. Readers of any age will appreciate Ulmer's ingenuity and harness the strength they need to create and innovate.”
