Asia Newson Super Business Girl Detroit

“Detroit is a wonderful place. It’s been a lot of negative things on the news, but Detroit is still a great place to start a business.”

Asia Newson is an 11-year-old Detroiter who could sell ice to an Eskimo. She has an excellent pitch, and uses that skill and her winning personality to sell candles around the city of Detroit to people she meets. She’s been featured on This American Life in a segment called “It’s Not The Product, It’s The Person” … and her latest appearance is this segment on ABC News 20/20.

Oh and also, we are proud to say that Newson shares our co-working space at Bamboo Detroit. Here’s her website.
