Myleik said: This is the first time I’ve ever had a “meet up” and I had such an AMAZING time with this group! So much so that I feel like we’re family in our own special little Miami way. I’ve since had another meet up and when they come out I can’t wait to see them (FYI: Miami is like my second home … *lol*). After this meet up I felt more in tune with my purpose. Sure … We gather in the name of hair products but we’re connected by love, inspiration and the quest for being better together. You can’t really beat that. I shared this blog with my Dad too (I’m close with both of my parents) and my Dad replied back with: ”What a way to live your life!” I couldn’t agree more.
I was elated when I received an email from Curlbox
informing us their founder Myleik Teele would be in Miami, and was planning to do a meet-up! I was even more excited when I realized we’d be meeting at the famed Fountainebleau
- I will take any reason to go there
Myleik’s work ethic, intensity for business and passion for Curlbox can be felt through her social media platforms, so I knew nothing was going to stand in the way of me attending the meet-up. I’m always inspired by Black women who have taken the road to entrepreneurship as I have always aspired to do the same.
I posted about this company back in November
when they had just a landing page for those who were interested to sign up for updates. Once the full site was launched and memberships opened up, it sold out within minutes – and it continues to happen every time Myleik opens the membership to new members. I’m one of the unlucky souls that keeps missing the openings ((sigh)) but please believe, I will have my membership sooner rather than later – I’m not giving up, lol! Nonetheless, I tell EVERYONE about Curlbox
and have had the please of interacting with Myleik through twitter and instagram over the last few months.
Over drinks, Myleik gave us insight on everything from Curlbox
, to dating, business, book recommendations, hair and more. Anything and everything was discussed – no question was unanswered or off limits. We were in an intimate environment that felt more like hanging out with your cooler and very successful big sister who was schooling you on life. Ms Teele gave it to us straight – not an ounce of sugar coating, and we ate up every minute of it. She has a huge, animated personality that had us cracking up throughout our conversations.
