Meet the 13-year-old CEO who built a $200,000 business with 5 employees


A 13-year-old entrepreneur who started a bow tie company three years ago has already hit $150,000 in sales.

Moziah Bridges appeared on CNBC today to promote his holiday collaboration with Cole Haan.

Bridges told CNBC he loved dressing up, but could never find bow ties he liked.

To solve the problem, his grandmother taught him how to sew.

Since Bridges started his company, Mo’s Bows, he has been featured on Shark Tank, and in Vogue and GQ magazines.

“Since I’m the CEO I can do it when I feel like it,” he said. “I have employees — my grandmother, she’s about like 80, and my mom works for me, and I have three more seamstresses.”

Bridges’ bow ties retail for $40.
