"Before the Cookie Crumbles!" with Kristina Lachaga & Mikaila Ulmer (16-year-old Founder & CEO!)
Hey #Heartbreakers! Can you BEE-lieve it?! Mikaila Ulmer, 16-year-old Founder and CEO of Me & the Bees Lemonade, has joined our USA Girl Scouts Overseas' Cookie Rally lineup! This entrepreneur, bee ambassador, philanthropist and author is so inspirational, a total G.I.R.L., and is ready to help YOU rock this Girl Scout Cookie Season!
I first heard about Mikaila when she (at only 10-years-old!) landed a deal with Daymond John on the show Shark Tank and that was only the beginning of her many successes. Today, while her award-winning lemonade flies off the shelves of Whole Foods, Earth Fare, and the Fresh Market, this ultimate G.I.R.L. is running her Healthy Hive Foundation and just released her first book, Bee Fearless: Dream Like a Kid, in August!
This week Mikaila and I took some time out of our busyyy-bee schedules to play my "Before the Cookie Crumbles!" Game (don't worry - no Girl Scout cookies were harmed in the making of this game! lol). Watch on YouTube!

About Mikaila Ulmer:
Entrepreneur, Bee Ambassador, Philanthropist and Author
Mikaila Ulmer is founder and CEO of Me & the Bees Lemonade. When she was just four years old, Mikaila was stung by two bees in the same week. Her parents encouraged her to do some research on the bees rather than being upset with them. Upon discovering the important role that bees play in our ecosystem, Mikaila was determined to help them. Using her Great Granny Helen's flaxseed honey lemonade recipe, Mikaila launched her business from her home in Austin, Texas in 2009.
Landing a deal with Daymond John on the show Shark Tank was just the beginning of Me & the Bees' many business successes. Today, the award-winning lemonade is buzzing off the shelves of H-E-B, Whole Foods Market, Earth Fare, The Fresh Market and Kroger (5/2020). In 2018, Mikaila launched her Healthy Hive Foundation where 10% of the net profits from the sale of her lemonade goes to saving our honey bees.
Now at the age of 16, Mikaila has shared her story with Good Morning America, NBC News, ABC 20/20, The Real, Forbes and TIME among others, and has been invited to speak on social entrepreneurship at prestigious gatherings including the White House and the United State of Women Summit, where she introduced President Barack Obama. Mikaila's book, Bee Fearless: Dream Like a Kid was released on August 18, 2020. Follow @MikailasBees on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube! www.meandthebees.com
See you at Cookie Rally! xoxo
love, the girl with the big pink heart™
