Mahisha Dellinger survived the streets of South Sacramento, turning a creative idea into the multi-million-dollar hair company, Curls, a family of organic hair care products targeted for women embracing their natural textures. Now, in “Mind Your Business with Mahisha,” she is taking on a whole new challenge: helping other female entrepreneurs live out their dreams and take their small businesses to greater heights. In each standalone episode, Mahisha meets with entrepreneurs and guides them with inspiration and a little bit of tough love. She tests their passion and determination while demanding that they give it their all – just like she did – in order to reach their goals.
