    1051: Black Wealth Matters: Myleik Teele, Founder and Chief Experience Officer of curlBOX

    1051: Black Wealth Matters: Myleik Teele, Founder and Chief Experience Officer of curlBOX

    Over the years many outstanding Black individuals who fought racism and oppression to achieve personal wealth and career success have graced my podcast. For the next 10 episodes - from today June 3rd through June 24 - I’ll be re-sharing and re-amplifying some of their voices and work, their stories of resilience, hard work and triumph. I’m calling this series BLACK WEALTH MATTERS. 
    I announced this on Instagram earlier in the week. It is my small way of contributing to this human rights issue of racial equality. It’s the quickest action I know to take that would hopefully have a meaningful impact...to get us to unlearn, re-evaluate and better understand what it means to be a Black person in this country while trying to establish personal wealth. 
    Thank you to everyone who responded to my announcement with guest recommendations for Black Wealth Matters. I’ve taken them all into account and keeping a folder and hoping to work my way to speaking to all of them - if not this month - in the coming months. Please keep the guest suggestions coming.
    Today -- We are revisiting my conversation with Myleik Teele from 2015. Myleik is the Atlanta-based founder and chief experience officer of Curlbox, the first exclusive monthly subscription box for naturally curly hair. 
    curlBOX has major partnerships with brands and distributors including Procter & Gamble, Walmart, Target, and Shea Moisture, and more. 
    A teacher at heart, her wildly popular, #MyTaughtYou podcast has become her global classroom where women from all walks of life tune in for guidance and a healthy dose of motivation to live life on their own terms. 
    You just heard at the top of this show - a moment from our conversation - when she candidly opens up about her relationship with money. Even as a wealthy woman, she is, as she says, cautious with her money, perhaps overly cautious.

Know nothing? Start here.

I legitimately knew nothing before listening to this show. It is refreshing to hear someone that isn’t a white man talking about finances. I have more confidence as a result of listening to this show- enough so to be able to take on a mortgage and plan more for retirement! Cheers to Farnoosh for empowering women to feel part of the financial system. We matter!

Such inspiration!

I listen to this podcast on my morning walks and absolutely love it! It’s a great way to start my day being educated and inspired to take control of my personal finance. I’m 27 years old with no financial knowledge, yet find this podcast easy to follow. Farnoosh guides interviews in ways that optimizes information but also brings messages home so listeners can relate. She really thinks about what her listeners want to learn and chooses guests accordingly. Highly recommend for not only beginners but advanced financial people as well.

disappointed in your direction

I’ve listened to your show for a couple years. I enjoyed the financial content, the questions asked, and the drive to better one’s financial situation. My unsubscribe is resulting from the politicization of the podcast. I received Farnoosh’s most recent email providing one-sided resources to bail out protesters and a hotline to report police brutality while not mentioning anything about supporting the police force that for the most part does an amazing job protecting their communities. I expect an honest representation from Farnoosh given her position as a public figure concerning personal finance. For every negative encounter with a police officer there are many more positive encounters. That’s how it is in every trade and industry. There are bad people everywhere. I support the diversity you promote on your show but bailing out protesters? It’s rioters and looters who are jailed and not peaceful protesters. For an example of a personal finance podcast that does a beautiful job of keeping politics from becoming the main theme, check out Stacking Benjamin’s. Politics are an inherent part of our life but if that’s the direction the podcast is going in, you have lost this listener and I’m sure many others. I would be more than happy to chat with you if you decide to read my review on your show.
