In our society many women are praised for their flawless makeup, their ability to act, dance, or sing. However, I am in awe of the women who are able to raise families while building multi-million dollar empires. The women that accomplish these seemingly impossible tasks don't get enough praise and recognition.
This year I had the opportunity to go to the Bella Kinks Expo in Dallas. I was able to meet incredible women leaders in the natural hair community including the CEO of Curls, Mahisha Dellinger. As many of you may know, Curls was the first corporate sponsor for the film during our kickstarter phase. It was definitely an honor to meet her. I can really relate to her because she is a wife, mother, and entrepreneur. I was inspired because she has reached the realms of success that most people only dream about. I also had the pleasure of reading her book, “Against all Odds, From Poverty to the Penthouse” which is a must-read for young women.
Hearing her story definitely gave me a different perspective on business and leadership. Mahisha has an interesting perspective because her company’s products were one of the first in the natural hair space. You will have the opportunity to learn more about her and her brand when the film debuts. Also, if you come to the official release in Dallas you will be able to score some free Curls products... (wink, wink)
Until next time…..
