Today, we have a special episode with a woman whose hustle and drive I deeply respect. Her name is Myleik Teele, and if you don’t know her, you should:

Myleik Teele has revolutionized the way women address their curly hair needs. As the founder of curlBOX, an exclusive monthly subscription box full of amazing products, she has garnered partnerships with Procter & Gamble, Carol’s Daughter, Walmart, Target, SheaMoisture and more.

Before creating curlBOX, Myleik honed her talents for a decade in public relations, working with brands such as The Grammy Awards, American Idol and Nike, as well as music artists like the late Prince. Now, as the creator of the premier hair sampling box, she has developed a loyal following of savvy women. She is very much like a virtual big sister, dishing out spot­ on entrepreneurial advice.

We all have our thing that #MyTaughtUs, but one thing I learned from her, is to intentionally put myself in the places and spaces to meet the people I want to connect with. This episode felt more like a heart to heart, an opportunity to really connect with a mentor in my head.

On Today’s show, Myleik shares:

  1. What led her to be an entrepreneur
  2. The most surprising part of starting curlBOX
  3. How we as entrepreneurs can push past the need for approval
  4. Her thoughts on taking that leap even when you’re not ready
  5. PLUS, get ready to hear a special listener edition of lightning round, where she answers questions from listeners in the Side Hustle Pro community
