PERFECT BROWN GIRL OF THE DAY
Asia Newson of Super Business Girl
MARTHA TESEMA writes "I teach young people like myself how to make their own money and buy the things they really need in their life because they won't have to ask their parents for anything if they do the same thing that I do," Asia Newson explained in her 2014 TED talk.
So what exactly does the 13-year-old do? She sells what she calls "the world's best candles," like this signature candle you can purchase for $14.99, as well as a line of Super Business Girl merchandise.
She also offers "How to be a YOUTHpreneur" workshops, which teach students from fourth to 12th grade about entrepreneurship, merchandising, innovation and, of course, candle making.
