What were you doing at the age of 9?
While most kids are playing outside or watching TV, Zandra Cunningham was getting her natural skin care product line off the ground. Zandra loved lip balm and constantly asked her father to buy her different flavors. One day when she asked for a new lip balm, her dad told her he isn’t going to buy her anymore and she needed to create her own.
Even though he was half-joking, Zandra took it seriously and taught herself how to create lip balm at the age of 9! Fast forward 7 years later and Zandra Beauty is a company whose products are used by young girls all over the world. Zandra has been featured on Inc., ABC, NBC and also donates 10% of all profits to support girls education.
During this interview, we chat with Zandra on how she taught herself to create her skin care line, how she how she manages her schedule as a teenager and a business owner and the advice she would give to other young entrepreneurs.
