Just over a year ago, Tania Speaks was being taunted and bullied at school for having bushy brows.
Although the name calling deeply hurt the 15-year-old – she decided to rise above it. Determined not to let her tormentors win, she looked in the mirror and saw a brilliant business idea.
That’s when Brow Boost was born.
The organic skin care company makes products not just for women’s eyebrows, but for the bearded men in their lives. Speaks is now a brilliant, savvy 16-year-old entrepreneur and has been recently been profiled in Forbes.

The smart young woman created Brow Boost using all natural ingredients.
Her own formula helped tame her thick brows and also made the youngster wonder if she could help others in her situation.
Unfortunately, Speaks didn’t have Kris Jenner investment money in order to start her business. So it’s remarkable that with zero funding, her idea has turned into a fully fledged full-time business. Brow Boost grew by 60% in its first five months and has doubled its revenue to date.
In 2017, she even extended her line for men who have bald patches in their beards. According to her website, Beard Boost is formulated with Vitamin E to “penetrate hair follicles and nourish the skin.”
Speaks says about her feature in Forbes: “I am honored to be featured on the Women@Forbes platform and to share my story with the world. It is an acknowledgment of my hard work, passion, and fast growth.”
She Will Be Attending College
Even though Brow Boost is growing daily, Speaks is not neglecting her studies.
She ranked in the top 5% of her high school class and maintained a 4.0 grade point average. The CEO business woman took college courses to enable her to skip her junior year of high school.
She will attend Hofstra University in the Fall.
