Since her media exposure, millions want to know about the young black girl who produced a hair product line. It's Leanna Archer and her net worth is steadily growing into the millions (estimated $3.2 million).
In another article, I provided details about young entrepreneur competitions and where to find them. I also mentioned why they’re so popular nowadays. Leanna Archer a 13 year old hair products young entrepreneur is one of those reasons. If you think young entrepreneurs get their start in high school or college dorm rooms alone, think again. This young lady started a profitable hustle by creating her own formula for hair care products for courser textured hair. We covered Leanna in a previous post, but wanted to elaborate more on here present status.
Some women with thicker harder to managed hair, use quick fixes like oiling their scalps on a regular basis with natural oils like shea butter, but are they smarter than this 13 year old who started a whole line of natural products targeted at African American women’s hair textures? They’re no less smart, only that she’s far more driven. You could call her today’s Madame CJ Walker. For those who don’t know, Madame CJ Walker a daughter of former slaves, was considered the first African American woman to become a self-made millionaire by marketing the first hair straightening comb and inventing “Madam Walker’s Wonderful Hair Grower”, a scalp conditioning and healing formula for African American women.
Leanna Archer's company currently grosses over $100, 000 a year, but she actually started her hair and body care products when she was 9 years old in Central Islip, Long Island. Drive and motivation of that caliber at such a young age is rare and gets notice quickly. She’s been featured on Forbes.com, numerous Television and magazine interviews, and travels the speaking circuit doing inspirational and motivational speaking. Now who wants to stop hanging out at the mall, dealing with adolescent drama, and social networking all day to go start their own hair products business? If that’s you, you might just use this young lady as your template to get started.
Currently at age sixteen, Leanna Archer's net worth is reported to be about $3.2 million dollars and growing.
