12-Year Old CEO Micro-Franchising Her Company to Help Young Girls Start Businessesby GDN Shared Post November 28, 2018
Columbia, SC — Award-winning GaBBY Bows CEO Gabrielle Goodwin and her mom Rozalynn are sharing their international brand with other girls and their moms through the Mommy and Me Entrepreneurship Academy.
Each participating Girl Boss will receive GaBBY Bows to sell, monthly entrepreneurship trainings, daily access to mentoring in a private online community, branding materials and an affiliate link to GabbyBows.com to earn money from online sales she initiates by sharing the website.
The Mommy and Me Entrepreneurship Academy will equip girls to establish profitable businesses and grow mother-daughter bonds. Girl Bosses can save earnings for college while learning entrepreneurship and life skills like sales, marketing, budgeting and public speaking.
Gabrielle was named the youngest ever South Carolina Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2015 and the 2018 Black Enterprise Teenpreneur of the Year. GaBBY Bows was named the national SCORE Foundation Outstanding Diverse Business of the Year in 2016.
The young entrepreneur was just five years old when she started daily insisting she and her mom create a barrette that would not disappear from her hair. Gabrielle and Rozalynn invented GaBBY Bows — the first and patented Double-Face Double-Snap Barrette and started the company when Gabrielle was seven years old.
Since then, GaBBY Bows have saved families time, money and frustration in all 50 U.S. states and nine countries through online sales. The hair accessory solution is also sold in 50 retail stores in the U.S., Canada and South Africa.
“I want girls who look up to me to be CEOs just like me, so I’m excited about sharing my company and journey with girls around the world,” says Gabrielle Goodwin, GaBBY Bows CEO.
