FAB Girl Making History: Leanna Archer

3 Feb

Meet Leanna Archer.

At age 13, she made history by being the youngest teen business owner to ring the opening bell for the NASDAQ stock market. At age 9, she started Leanna’s, Inc., a natural hair and body care line of products that rakes in $100,000 a year.

What makes her such a FAB entrepreneur is her willingness to share the wealth.  Kids can become representatives by introducing her products to salons and businesses in their area. They will receive a 10 to 15% profit of the orders that are placed through them. Leanna  is soon to join the ranks of Avon and Mary Kay!

She also does public speaking events and started a non profit to help kids in Haiti have food, education and a safe place to live. She has been featured at BET’s ‘Black Girls Rock’, which showcases FAB Women and Girls who are changing the world for the better. She has appeared on 106 and Park and been profiled in publications such as Forbes and Ebony.

To learn more about her, her company and products, visit her website.  This FAB Girl is going places!
