Mosiah Bridges is no ordinary 11 year old. He refers to himself as NBT. What does that stand for? Next Big Thing. And that is exactly what he is. Lester Holt from TODAY said that Bridges was precocious, well-dressed, and very talented. So what does he do that makes him so talented and will make him the next big thing? He owns his own company.
Mosiah started the company, Mo’s Bows when he was just 9 years old. He is a stylish dresser and felt that others should be just as stylish as he is. He began hand making bow ties and the company flourished from there. He has sold thousands of his bow ties already. His grandmother taught him how to sew when he was very young and it has taken off from there.
In an interview with TODAY Mosiah said that he feels a spark when he wears a bow tie. He says that ladies love chubby cheeks and so he wears the bow tie to show off those cheeks. His love for bow ties began when he was three years old and his mother put a bow tie on him on his way to the neighborhood playground.
Mosiah’s mother and grandmother help him to run the business. He says that he is technically the CEO of the company but his mother is the CEO of Mo. He travels to the fabric store to get his inspiration. He has made thousands of ties in all kinds of patterns and colors. He has dreams of becoming a clothing designer and starting his own clothing line as well. He has big dreams and a big heart. He is well on his way to being the NBT!
