Kristian Grant is committed to helping others push through the challenges and obstacles life presents, in order to pursue their dreams. Becoming a parent at the age of 16, she defied the odds and went on to complete high school, graduate from an honors college, found a nonprofit organization, and start several companies while raising her daughter. Throughout her journey Kristian learned to find motivation and inspiration from educators, business leaders, and members of her family and the community who have served as mentors and advisors. The success of her women's clothing store, Sydney's Boutique, has fulfilled a childhood dream and allowed her to give other young entrepreneurs a space to meet, explore, and discuss ideas. These relationships and experiences have inspired her newest company, Mini Mogul Group. The company focuses on instilling an entrepreneurial mindset in children by working with schools, parents and the community to equip children with tools to identify their passion and develop their business sense.
