From Aspiring Park Ranger to Hair Care Pioneer with Dominique Taylor.

Embark on an enlightening odyssey with Dominique Taylor, a visionary who transformed from a park ranger into the eco-conscious founder of Consciously Curly Company. Uncover ...  how her multicultural roots and a deep connection to the natural world fueled a pioneering venture in sustainable hair care tailored for curly and ethnic hair. Dominique's narrative is a rich tapestry interwoven with environmental stewardship, a zeal for self-care, and a resolute drive to harmonize her entrepreneurial aspirations with a demanding healthcare career.

This episode takes you through the melodies of life that soundtrack pivotal moments, like the move to Utah, stirring reflections on the impact of heritage, and the embrace of a small-town upbringing. With Dominique's Maltese and Black lineage steering her compass, we journey through her transformational experiences, from the Seventh-day Adventist lessons on nature's sanctity to the spark of academic pursuits that culminated in her passion for biology. Her chronicle doesn't shy away from the intricacies of crafting a business model that fiercely advocates for safe, eco-friendly ingredients, dodges the dangerous pitfalls of harmful additives, and intertwines the unexpected genius of mushrooms into hair care innovation.

Listen as Dominique shares her entrepreneurial wisdom, balancing the growth of Consciously Curly with a full-time job, all while nurturing personal relationships and advocating for self-care. From the ritualistic power of morning routines to Maintenance Mondays with loved ones, her story offers practical advice on managing the whirlwind of life's demands. As a beacon for budding entrepreneurs, Dominique's journey illuminates the path toward organic expansion, the importance of valuing one's work, and the cherished connections that sustain us through the journey of life and business.
