Growing up in Connecticut, Juliette Brindak used to start bake sales, lemonade stands, and garage sales. But when she was 10 years old, her entrepreneurial horizons expanded during a routine family vacation.

Juliette created a series of drawings of girls, one of whom was named Miss O. Everyone liked the characters so much that she kept drawing them – and soon enough, her family joined in to help bring the characters to life.

In 2005, Juliette launched, a by-girls-for-girls site where tweens can go to safely interact, get advice in a supportive community, and play flash games that range from fashion contests to mini golf. The Miss O characters offer positive role models for growing girls and they’ve been featured in a series of books that have sold over 120,000 copies collectively. In 2008, Procter & Gamble invested in Miss O and Friends and estimated the company’s value at $15 million dollars.

Today, the Miss O and Friends team includes over 30 people – including 15 interns, a board of 12 people, a webmaster, a lawyer, a school psychologist, and Juliette’s mom and dad. Juliette is the spokesperson and a writer for the website. She’s also going into her senior year at Washington University in St. Louis, MO, studying anthropology.
