10-year old Asia Newson is making waves across the country as the city of Detroit’s youngest entrepreneur with her candle-making company Super Business Girl. Since starting her business at just the age of five Asia has grown her venture into a national sensation, securing her a spot among The Grio’s 100 most influential people from business to politics to entertainment.
Here she is talking to MSNBC Anchor T.J. Holmes about her company and aspirations to help other young people become entrepreneurs:
How fabulous is she? Not only are we impressed with her “extrapreneurial” spirit, we are also floored at how mature and sophisticated she is, as if she’s been doing interviews all her life. Obviously Asia is ready for her close-up and we can’t wait to see where she’s headed.
