Entrepreneurship Highlight: Beau Shell

One of our three pillars at Pearl School of Modeling is entrepreneurship. We challenge our Pearls to create a business plan, implement it, and begin their business in their semester. We felt it important to add an entrepreneur highlight to the newsletter” to bring awareness to the numerous business owners that could positively influence our readers.
 
Meet Victor “Beau” Shell; a 15 year-old entrepreneur who has been running his own business since the age of eight. At age eight, Beau received an ice cream cart for his birthday. Beau is the owner of Cool World Ice Cream Shop in Athens, Georgia. Beau, affectionately known as “Lil Ice Cream Dude” is more than just a business owner; he’s a fighter. Diagnosed with pneumonia and emphysema, Beau was confined to his home for weeks but was determined to make his ice cream business a success. Beau received his medical treatment at the Scottish Rite Hospital and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. There he was introduced to UGA Miracle and Dance Marathon which he now supports with some of his proceeds. He has sold his ice cream in more than 400 events and to more than 10,000 customers. Beau desires to inspire all.
