This is what happens when a media company gets taken over by liberals. A single location chocolate shop run by a modern liberal brings her to 30 under 30 status. Wow. Are there zero 30 year olds who have reached high positions at Kroger, Mars, Whole Foods?

hahaha bon bon bon is still in the red you goofs. You know, it is not a success story if your company is perpetually in debt.
Belly up in 2 to 3 years. This comment will age well, unlike you.

Good for her. But I am so unbelievably sick of people saying the usual ” old, white dudes ” as if they are some alien race, especially when it comes from white people! She seems an intelligent woman but by saying things like that makes her seem very unintelligent. Seems like these large groups of white people want to combat racism by fighting it with more racism. Grow up and realize f*ck all has to do with someone’s race now, it’s how they present themselves and how hard they work. The people who say they want racism gone are the ones who are keeping it alive.

Bon Bon Bon is such an incredible small business! Seriously the best chocolates I have ever eaten — I cannot wait until they’re shipping! Detroit is having an incredible resurgence and their focus on celebrating and supporting small businesses is definitely proving successful. So impressed by this lady and all she’s accomplishing!

omg! your ridiculous!!! THIS IS RIDICULOUS! I would give you a recognition AWARD. TOP 30?!? geez your not anything compare to young entrepreneurs in china or those young doctors in india. BUT HEY! I guess if you label something liberal or BLM or muslim right next to your name with 1k followers and forbes saying it denitely makes it TRUE! It reminds me of trader joes, if it says organic they hike the price up!

Why are they always hating on “old white dudes”? Everybody wants to stick it to the man! Why do they have to be wrong in the narrative that you’re right. Why can’t you just talk about how you hustled and did something good? Somehow it’s ok to put down “old white dudes” but you can’t say anything bad about anyone else??
