Andrea Cao was 13 years old when she and her mother Hong appeared on Shark Tank. They pitched their handheld acupuncture massage device, Q-Flex. They landed an investment from two Sharks, Barbara Corcoran and Mark Cuban ($25,000 for 25 percent). After Shark Tank, annual sales of Q-Flex went from $20,000 to $500,000.
2015 was a busy year for Andrea Cao. She graduated from Laguna Middle School and is now a student at San Luis Obispo High School. She continues to pursue her entrepreneurial dreams (she appeared on Lori Greiner’s QVC) and her passion for horses. With the money made from Q-Flex, Andrea bought a horse ranch and fulfilled her dream of adopting a wild mustang. Andrea admits that traveling across the country with her family has caused her to skip “way too much school for business” but her mother shouldn’t worry. Andrea recently visited UC Davis where she was impressed with their Vet Sciences program.
Oh my goodness wow… How did 2015 pass by so quickly? God has blessed me with such an amazing and unforgettable year, it’s just too much to put in to one instagram post! From having @barbaracorcoran come over for a visit, talking with @lorigreinershark at the QVC studios in Pennsylvania, to buying a beautiful ranch and following my dream and adopting a wild mustang. Traveling across the country with my family, and skipping way too much school for business. And I can’t forget the amazing opportunity of being able to join rooted youth group and really have God move in my life. All of that and so so much more. Thank you to everyone who made this year special, to my friends, to my family, and my supporters, you all are amazing ? Lets all hope for an even more amazing year, but I’m not sure this was one able to be topped. #2016
