Young Entrepreneurs “Nailed It” with their Business
Six siblings from Washington D.C. started a company called Jr. Flips. They flip older houses and remodel them. This helps the community and it also puts money in their wallets. On their first two homes, they made more than $250,000. They have moved on to their third house now. The youngest girl, Alianna, age 8, said, “We are not like other kids because we are not watching TV or playing video games. We are busy doing our business in Jr. Flips.”
The siblings started this business after they ran into Oprah Winfrey at a restaurant. They asked her for advice and she said, “Give back, work hard and never give up.” Fulfilling this directive, the Jr. Flips crew went on the Steve Harvey Show and gave $3,000 of their profits to the Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation.
