Whether you rock a perm, natural or a fabulous weave, if you’re a woman of color, you’ve probably heard of Carol’s Daughter. Founded by Lisa Price, the New Yorker launched her business out of her kitchen. And with marketable hair and skin products with names like ‘Hair Milk’ and ‘Almond Cookie’, many thought her brand propelled over night. But according to Ms. Price, that could be far from the truth. Before sitting on Oprah’s couch (hell, that’s the first time I had heard her name) she had face a few challenging set backs. During a recent speaking engagement at Inc., Live, she spoke about her humble beginnings (she started off selling at flea markets), expanding her brand (with investors like Steve Stoute) and why she refuses to live with ‘What if(s)?’.
We found this so fascinating that we had to share it, in hopes that it would push you even further in whatever your dream is.
