Bump a lemonade stand. 11-year-old Mikaila Ulmer from Austin, Texas is dreaming way bigger – and it’s finally paid off.

Mikaila is the creative mind behind BeeSweet, a flaxseed-based lemonade sweetened by the honey of local bees. The junior entrepreneur recently landed a distribution deal with Whole Foods, which will place BeeSweet on the shelves of 55 store locations.

Ironically, it was Mikaila’s unfortunate encounter with bees that sparked the idea to launch the brand. After getting two bee stings in one week at the age of 4, Mikaila started researching bees and learned that not only are they incredibly important to our ecosystem…they’re also endangered.

“Last year, beekeepers lost 40 percent of all their hives,” Mikaila told NBC. “Bees are dying.” She quoted Albert Einstein who said: “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left.”

Aside from her astonishing business venture with Whole Foods deal, the social entrepreneur, speaker and philanthropist has accomplished so much for some that hasn’t even made it to high school. The 6th grader also attended the White House Kids’ State Dinner last year where she met President Barack Obama. If Mikaila looks familiar, you may remember her from winning $60,000 on the hit TV show “Shark Tank,” last year.

Not too shabby, considering she squeezes all this in between homework.

      I’ve read your replies on other issues Peter. It’s sad that you have such a Godless heart. This is a child, a human being, with the same color blood as all human beings. I will put you in the category of the MENTALLY IMBALANCED and will say a prayer that your heart is healed from the negativity that you hold.

      I’ve read Peter’s reply on other issues spewing racial hate. You have a GODLESS HEART PETER. This is a child, a human being. News flash, all human beings of different ethnic groups have the same color blood. I will say a prayer for your heart to heal

      • Hey Russell I cant stand you black bastards. You animals are the real racists and ten times more racists than whites. I know this from experience!
