Child Entrepreneur Revitalizes the Bow Tie Business
Meet my favorite entrepreneur of the month.
His name is Moziah Bridges, he's eleven years old, and he sat down with my colleague Stuart Varney today to talk about his bow tie business, Mo's Bows.
Moziah has already earned over $30,000 from selling his bow ties, which range in price from $20 to $50 and are made in Memphis, Tennessee. He started his business in 2011 and told Stuart that the whole thing was his idea. In fact, he chooses all of the fabrics and is completely hands-on in the operation.
This kid is sharp and full of personality, aspires to be a fashion designer, and is already learning how to be a great salesman. He's not afraid of a tough challenge and his bow ties are pretty awesome.
Bottom line: This country needs more kids like Moziah Bridges, kids who dream big and work hard to make things happen. Imagine that--an 11-year old who couldn't find any bow ties he liked, so he thought he'd just make them himself. America needs more of that!
Kudos to Moziah's grandma for teaching him how to sew, his mom for supporting his big goals, and Moziah himself for having plenty of ambition, lots of passion, and a work ethic we can all be proud of.
