In a time so competitive as this when everyone is trying to shoot for the stars. Tyla-Simone Crayton secured her spot on this train ride to success. This fifteen years old from Brooklyn, New York decided to act rather than take whatever life has in store for her.Tyla-Simone shared that both her parents are entrepreneurs so being a boss came naturally to her. Here’s a brief intro into how Tyla-Simone started her own business Sienna Sauce.
Tyla-Simone stated that the birth of her destiny started because her favorite wing place in New York had closed down and instead of mourning the lost of something she once loved. She went home and tried to recreate the sauce but ended up with something much better. A great word she used to describe it was “tangy”. Family and Friends were overjoyed after tasting her sauce and encouraged her to take it up seriously by sharing her sauce with the world. Her mom then started to call her the “Tyla-Simone the CEO Sauce Boss” which took her to another level in interviews and publications because the name is so catchy.
Nowadays teenagers are eager to post another picture on Instagram or posting another tweet on Twitter but Tyla-Simone changed the ball game by stretching to the horizon and not letting age limit her from greatness. She said that “Many people are attracted to youth entrepreneurs and will support you because you are young.” She used the same medium others used for fun to launch her company and put herself out there. She gave us an insight on how managing her lifestyle and being a boss impacted her; “At times it can be stressful but I know how to manage my time very well and pull through. I’ve learned that you have to make sacrifices but if you really love what you’re doing it doesn’t feel like a sacrifice.” Having supportive family and friends around you really helped when it comes to balancing all she had on her plate.
Tyla-Simone is in it for the long run. When asked about her plans for the next five years she mentioned that she looks forward to her sauce being known Globally and incredibly increase in distributions. She didn’t shy away from the fact that she looks forward to running a Multimillion Condiments Company.
Though she face challenges right now in ensuring the distribution of the products are handled with care and delivered safely, she does her best to ensure her brand is protected and keeps its integrity intact. The “why” that drives her engine for success is her Family and ensuing that when she does start her own family she leaves a legacy for them to carry on.
It’s never too early to start and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something because you can do anything. If they say that let it motivate you not bring you down, prove them wrong. Also, you can find some one that’s in the position you desire to be in and let them mentor you. All in all, do what you have to do to get where you wanna be.
