Andrea Lake came from San Diego, California. She attended Grossmont High School in El Cajon. Despite not being a college graduate, she was able to establish her own business Rhytm Styx, which is a toy company. She then began to manage a sticker company, a t-shirt company, a clothing company, an online community, and a wedding planning service.
Moreover, she became part of the reality television show The Apprentice season 5 as one of the contestants. She was on team Synergy and won the challenges twice while she was project manager. Sadly, she was fired on week 9 because she was unable to produce the client's desired brochure and lacked the expected business know-how for the task. Since then, she has traveled the country as a motivational speaker. She has also been featured in Entrepreneur Magazine's "Young Millionaires" list.
