You’re about to read about one of the most successful young people in America.

10-year-old Asia Newsom is Detroit’s youngest entrepreneur.

Her candle company, Super Business Girl, is thriving and breathing life back into a much needed economy.

Not only does Asia make her own candles (with the help of her dad), but her business teaches young people like herself how to make their own money.

From The Grio: 

 “Some of my trainees are older than me, but I’m ten, this is my company and I’m the boss of the company so you have to listen to me, and if you don’t then I don’t know what to tell you,” said Newson. But, she knew what to tell [Quicken Loans Founder] Dan Gilbert when they bumped into each other. During her chance encounter with the Detroit business leader, Asia scheduled a follow-up meeting to discuss her future plans. “I would like to have a store front in his building and the Compuware Building. That’s my main goal,” she said.

A Detroit start-up, Bamboo Detroit, began advising Asia and her family nearly three months ago. “I think that she will become one of the most successful young persons that America has in all honesty,” said Brian Davis co-founder of Bamboo Detroit.

Newsom is an inspiration to everyone, especially her mother. “She inspires me. She’s kind, she’s outspoken and she’s intelligent,” said Asia’s mother.

Way to go Asia!
