Gabby Goodwin, a 14-year old girl from Columbia, South Carolina who is the CEO of and founder of Gabby Bows, is extremely grateful after receiving an investment worth $200,000, of which $50,000 is from broadcast journalist Gayle King.

During her interview in an episode on the new podcast One Hundred Percent with Marcus Lemonis, Gabby talked avidly about the business she founded when she was just 5-years old.

She said she got the idea out of frustration from always losing her hair barrettes that keep falling out of her hair. She then started creating the patented double-faced double-snap barrette until she also developed a range of natural hair care products that are sold online and in 74 Target locations across the country.
