Celebrate Sisterhood 2016: April 2 - A Conversation with Mahisha Dellinger, CEO & Founder of the CURLS Empire
Attendees of the Cleveland Clinic Celebrate Sisterhood program in Beachwood on April 2 benefitted from a personable, dynamic speaker, Ms. Mahisha Dellinger, CEO and Founder of Curls Empire. With much grit and determination, Ms. Dellinger was able to leave abject poverty and create a multimillion dollar hair care dynasty.
In an extemporaneous and charismatic manner, she shared excerpts from her book, “Against All Odds: From the Projects to the Penthouse” to a receptive audience. Participants learned about tools that can be used to embrace a wealth mindset and the essentials of entrepreneurship: get a life coach, find a mentor, be extraordinary, do your homework, know your weaknesses; the art of negotiation, build a support group, be confident, be resilient, write a business plan, network and, above all, just do it.
Typically, Celebrate Sisterhood topics embrace health issues for multicultural women. However, Linda Bradley, MD, founder and chair of Celebrate Sisterhood, chose this speaker and topic related to financial health literacy because wealth disparities frequently impact health choices among her patients. Celebrate Sisterhood continues to utilize robust community-based avenues for health information exchange and aligns with the goals of population health management.
