While most parents tend to buy expensive gifts for their children to celebrate them when they turn a new age, Debrah Philips, a mother of a 16-year-old surprised her daughter with a new business on her 16th birthday.
Philips disclosed in an interview that she wanted to give something that could take her daughter further in life.
According to Black Enterprise, Philips thought to herself that she could always buy her daughter a car in future but could teach her many important lessons such as how to lead, build a vision, time-management, team building, marketing, budgeting, investing managing finances, customer service and more.
Philips also revealed the idea stemmed from her daughter, Nia, who told her mother in a text conversation she wanted to sell lip gloss after watching a YouTube video about how to make it.
She challenged Nia to do more than simply sell lip gloss and instead turn it into a brand that could grow. The two came up with a brand name and products, but after that, they didn’t talk about it much.
Months later when Nia was preparing to mark her 16th birthday, her mother surprised her with a table with her image and the brand name, alongside bottles of branded lip gloss and a full website set to go.
Debrah Philips believes in supporting her daughter’s dreams and showing her that there are multiple ways to achieve success was the way forward.
