Living My Dream: How I Launched A Successful Subscription Box Service w/ Myleik Teele

Life is but a dream.

When you think about your ideal life, what does it look like?

xoNecole’s Living My Dream series, in partnership with the new 2017 Toyota Corolla, seeks to answer that question in a multitude of ways by featuring several career-driven women, emblazoned and empowered by the entrepreneurial spirit. Success comes in many forms, but in its purest form, it looks like a life where you blaze your own path, and your purpose is truly fulfilled. For these women, their lives are even more than their dreams. They’ve surpassed the “what ifs” and hypotheticals, and have made their dreams a powerful reality.

In the second episode, we spotlight the ever so fabulous and real, Myleik Teele. The entrepreneur spent most of her twenties working as a publicist to beauty brands and music artists, but found herself increasingly unfulfilled though acquiring what she initially thought was success. After her client, drummer Travis Barker, was involved in a plane crash, she saw it as a sign to reevaluate her life and be true to living and fulfilling her purpose. She eventually pressed reset when she moved from LA to Atlanta, and it was there that the idea to launch curlBOX – a subscription service box who love hair products – came to life.

curlBOX launched with a bang and has been profitable for Teele ever since. Teele also serves as a virtual mentor to thousands of women through her personal brand My Taught You, which includes yearly progress journals, worksheets, and a popular podcast dedicated to giving women valuable advice on how to excel in business.

As they say, create the change you want to see in this world, besties. That’s why xoNecole linked up with Hyundai for the inaugural ItGirl 100 List, a celebration of 100 Genzennial women who aren’t afraid to pull up their own seats to the table. Across regions and industries, these women embody the essence of discovering self-value through purpose, honey! They're fierce, they’re ultra-creative, and we know they make their cities proud.


When it comes to homeownership, many of us might be holding some preconceived notions as well as valid fears that it's just out of reach. From the unstable housing market to rising prices, to challenges with employment and other financial factors, it might seem that owning a home was something only our grandmothers or mothers could enjoy. But all hope is not lost.

In fact, research points to Black women being the leaders behind a boost in homeownership in the past few years, and even during the pandemic, we continued on our plight to leaving renting for ownership.
