How did a former wedding planner turn her side hustle into a million dollar business? Today’s guest has the answer. If you’ve ever heard the phrase “bias for action” she is the epitome of that. When she thinks of an idea, she doesn’t just sit on it, she acts on it. She’s founded two successful businesses in her lifetime with no business degree and only education from the school of hard knocks. I’m talking about Vivian Kaye, the Founder and CEO of KinkyCurlyYaki, a successful natural hair extensions brand.

Known by fans as The Queen of Kank, Vivian founded KinkyCurlyYaki in 2012 to provide natural hair solutions for women who wanted the ease and flexibility of kinky curly hair extensions.

On this episode, you’ll learn how she got the idea and started her business from her living room and is now at the head of a soon to be million dollar brand.

Topics discussed:

  • How her Ghanaian upbringing influenced her entrepreneurial fire
  • Why she never felt the pressure to complete school to start a business
  • How getting laid off gave her the final push to dive into entrepreneurship full time
  • How she started two successful businesses from scratch
  • Balancing entrepreneurship and motherhood
