Young Entrepreneur Series – Leanna’s Inc.

September 15, 2011

Leanna Archer was 9 years old when she started her company Leanna’s Inc. When she first told her parents she wanted to start a business, they said she was too young to start one! But a year later, this persistent young girl had laid out a neat business plan that just couldn’t be ignored.

So 9-year-old Leanna started her very own company and turned her great-grandmother’s homemade hair pomade recipe to a thriving home business. She is now 15 and the chief executive officer of Leanna’s Inc., a hair care company and is responsible for the creations and development of the hair products.

Her family helps her in bookkeeping, packaging, and product testing. Leanna Inc. sells its shampoos, conditioners, shea butter, and other products both in stores and online.  Leanna works seven days a week, all while maintaining a full workload at school. On weekends, she makes and packages the products at home with her parents’ help. During the week — after completing her homework — she packs boxes for the orders she receives daily on her Web site.

Her heroes are Dr. Maya Angelou and Oprah Winfrey. Leanna also gives speeches to motivate kids and young adults nationwide. She has also formed a foundation to help school and feed underprivileged kids in Haiti.
