How entrepreneur Mahisha Dellinger created the multi-million dollar natural hair company Curls, despite the odds stacked against her.

In todays episode, I catch up with Mahisha Dellinger, the Founder and CEO of the natural hair company CURLS, which took the market by storm after launching in 2002.

Mahisha is the true definition of resilience with a story that describes being raised in poverty by her single mother, in a community that was ridden with drugs and gang activity in the Sacramento area of her childhood home. Even with the deck stacked against her, Mahisha was able to push through her struggles by staying focused, putting herself through college and landing an internship at Intel Corporation.

Unsatisfied and unfulfilled in corporate America, Mahisha side hustled the idea for a high quality, organic, vegan hair care brand that was able to thoroughly nourish textured curls, yet be gentle enough for use by her daughter.

In 2002, Curls launched and her side hustle turned into a full blown business after being carried globally in a host of massive retailers such as Target, Walmart, Bed Bath and Beyond, CVS and more!

Mahisha Dellinger’s story is truly one of grit, determination and gradual continued success! I can not wait to dive in and share her story with you. Click the box above to tune in now!
