IRVING, Texas, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Renee Olson, Chief Leadership Officer for Nerium International™, and her "Little Sister", 11 year old Ryan, bowled over the crowd this past Saturday in Richardson, Texas. The duo scored well, but it was their compelling story of how a shy little girl and a busy executive became a match made in heaven that won over the hearts of the Nerium International family and their friends. "Little" Ryan is quite an extraordinary young person. The 5th grader says she is learning incredible things from her Big Sister and when she grows up she wants to run her own company.
