Books to Help Your Family Change the World

Ideas for change

Eleven-year old Mikaila Ulmer wanted to do something about the disappearance of bees and its effect on the eco-system, so she set out to sell a honey-based lemonade.  Using a family recipe, she developed BeeSweet Lemonade and began to sell it through local vendors in Austin, TX.  After receiving a sizeable investment through the show Shark Tank, her product is now sold at major retailers throughout the southwest.  Mikaila has sustained her original motivation to support the environment as a portion of her sales goes back into local businesses promoting bee keeping.
