Tyla-Simone Crayton, a 15-year old home-schooled teen entrepreneur from Houston, Texas, is the CEO of Sienna Sauce. Known as the Sauce Boss, she created the recipe for the uniquely-flavored sauce when she was just 8-years old. Now, she is selling the award-winning sauce online and through multiple distributors and she earns $8,000 a month!

Tyla-Simone, who grew up in New York, has always loved the hot sauce at her favorite chicken wings spot in the city. Since the restaurant closed, she tried to replicate the taste of the sauce. She was just 8 years old then and her mother, Monique Crayton, was initially hesitant about the idea. But when she tried to serve the sauce to their friends and neighbors, it became an instant hit!

Since then, Tyla-Simone and her mom have decided to sell the sauce in bottles. Her mother also quit her job earlier this year to be more dedicated to helping her daughter, who is home-schooled, to run and manage the company.
