Myleik Teele, Founder of curlBOX

Hair is a big business. My guest Myleik Teele is revolutionizing the world for women who have curly hair. She founded curlBOX, an exclusive and affordable monthly subscription box full of amazing haircare products for women with curly hair. This small big idea lets women try travel and sample sized hair products before actually making the purchase and investing in a full-sized bottle.

CurlBox has partnerships with major brands and distributors including Procter & Gamble, Walmart, Target and Shea moisture. The company has over 200k Instagram followers and Teele even created a web-series, curlBOX TV, which gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at their favorite hair care brands.

Behind this business is a remarkable personal story. And that’s where my interview with Myleik – who is only in her early 30s – begins.

Three takeaways from our interview:

  • Why she decided to leave her job in PR…and how with just $7,000 to her name, she bootstrapped her way to becoming the successful businesswoman she is today. This journey includes a brief moment in jail.
  • Her struggles with enjoying her success and her money.
  • The challenges of being a successful, rich woman when it comes to dating men. She’s with a great guy now…but it wasn’t always so simple.
