Today we’d like to introduce you to Electra Davis.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I am the founder of Mysteek Naturals. We are Black Woman Owned Veteran run Small Business. I am 35 Years old. I am a divorcee and mother of two children. I have a Bachelors in Business Administration with a concentration of Accounting. I believe I am one of the first black women to create this hair coloring system. I started developing the Mysteek Color Pop Hair Color in 2016. I launched the business officially May 2017.
I started Mysteek Naturals because like so many other women I was looking for an alternative to the rinses that weren’t giving me the popping color that I so badly wanted yet with the harm chemical and process of using a developer to bleach my hair to get that vibrant color I so badly desired. People started seeing me change my hair color all the time and then began asking how I was doing it without harming my hair. Once I showed them. They asked how they could buy some and the business was birthed from there.
I started my toothpaste line after learning the color code on the commercial toothpaste I used to use were alerting the customer of the chemicals and poisons in the toothpaste such as fluoride which was bad to my health.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has most definitely not been a smooth road. Some of the struggles are finding and maintaining a consistent team, obtaining capital for marketing and advertisement, learning the administrative behind the scenes of a business, writing an effective business plan, trial and error in price points, lessons learned in specific financial business moves, keeping up with the algorithms of social media in regard to marketing and advertising to name a few.
