- Lily Adeleye, a preschooler, is already setting the pace for other kids of her young formative age
- The 6-year-old has just scored a first after her products got listed on the shelves of Target, a leading retail outfit in the United States
- Her mother said she had behaviours suggestive of one having a business mindset as early as age 3 and that's why they helped her set her own business
A kid in the US is well on her way to making business history in the coming years at the rate she is going.
Lily Adeleye, according to Afrotech, becomes the youngest CEO to have her products featured on the shelves of a reputable retail store in the United States, Target.
Unlike every other 6-year-old kid in the world that would probably be in nursery school learning how to read and write and definitely not running a business, Lily is in a class of her own.
The young girl is into girly products such as dresses, hair bows, lunch boxes and backpacks.
Legit.ng learnt that the child prodigy is a kidpreneur today thanks to business lessons she learnt from her mum Courtney Adeleye right before she turned 6.
As early as age 3, Lily exhibited business savvy tendencies and her CEO mum, founder of the Black Haircare line, noticed this and helped brush her up to become what she is today.
Her mum said:
“At an early age, as she watched me build a successful business from the ground up, it exposed her to many possibilities and goals, so with that, we didn’t wait until she was an adult to help her pursue them."
In her own reaction to her achievements, the kidpreneur told Black Enterprise that:
"I own my own company, I don’t just like it, I love it.”
