At 15, Tyla-Simone Crayton, a home-schooled teen prodigy and entrepreneur who hails from Houston, Texas, operates her own business called Sienna Sauce.
Nicknamed the Sauce Boss, Tyla-Simone Crayton created the recipe for the uniquely-flavored sauce when she was just 8-years old.
Now, she is selling the award-winning sauce online through multiple distributors and she earns $8,000 (GHC42,919.89) a month!
Tyla-Simone, who grew up in New York, has always loved the hot sauce at her favorite chicken wings spot in the city and since the restaurant closed, she tried to replicate the taste of the sauce.
She was just 8 years old then and her mother, Monique Crayton, was initially hesitant about the idea.
However, when she tried to serve the sauce to their friends and neighbours, it became an instant hit!
Subsequently, Tyla-Simone and her mom have decided to sell the sauce in bottles. Her mother later quit her job earlier in 2019 to dedicate to helping her daughter, who is home-schooled, to run and manage the company.
Now resident in Texas, Sienna Sauce comes in three flavors: lemon pepper, spicy, and tangy. They have 22 distributors and is set to hit the supermarkets.
Tyla-Simone and her mum have now been reportedly raking in up to $8,000 (GHC42,919.89) a month. Tyla-Simone also hopes someday her sauce will be sold in packets at fast-food chains.
