It’s a typical day for Margo Gianos after creating a recipe for success. Margo is 16 and her “Honestly Margo” products are sold in hundreds of stores nationwide.
“I was always very entrepreneurial, and I was coming up with things to sell and make, but when I was 11 I thought of lip balm, so I just started playing around in my kitchen and started selling it in school and things took off from there,” Margo said. “When I was making these a long time ago, I was 11 and so I couldn’t really wear makeup yet, but I wanted something that was like beauty related, but I also wanted it to be healthy because so many things are bad for us these days.”
“It’s a trick of balance and knowing where our boundaries are between mother daughter, boss employee, business partners and friends, but it’s fun,” Mother Irene Gianos said.
