Welcome to brain stuff, a production of iHeartRadio. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren bogle bomb here. Entrepreneurs like Kim Kardashian and Rihanna, whose beauty brands have made hundreds of millions of dollars are following a trail blazed by one madam, CJ walker, a century ago. Some reports claim walker was the first black woman to build a $1 million fortune, but Guinness World Records lists walker as the first self made woman millionaire period. For the article this episode is based on, how stuff works spoke with A'Lelia bundles, walker's great great granddaughter, and biographer. She said, for a woman in business and who launched her product before women had the right to vote, is pretty extraordinary. Walker was the daughter of sharecroppers, yet still built a national brand, empowered hundreds of women, and became a philanthropist and civil rights activist. The Netflix miniseries self made, starring Octavia Spencer, is loosely based on her life story. So, who was she? The woman we know as Madame C.J. Walker was born, Sarah breedlove, Anna Louisiana cotton plantation, in 1867. The 5th child of Owen and Minerva breed love, who once had been enslaved, Sarah was the first of her siblings to be born free her early years in Louisiana were full of struggle, and Sarah was an orphan by the age of 7, so she went to live with her older sister and her husband. In 1877, the family moved to vicksburg Mississippi, where young Sarah picked cotton and did domestic work. At age 14, she married Moses mcwilliams to escape the hard labor and her brother in law, who mistreated her. Her only child, lilia, who later changed her name to A'Lelia walker, was born in June of 1885. But when her husband died in 1887, she moved to St. Louis, where her brothers were working as barbers. She started doing laundry, earning a dollar 50 a day, which allowed walker and her daughter to attend school. By the 1890s, her hair started falling out due to a scalp condition. There were very few hair care products designed for women of African descent at the time, and hair loss was a big problem bundle says. So walker searched for a way to cure her hair loss. She tried the pearl hair care line, made by another black woman entrepreneur, and it helped. She sold pearl for 18 months while experimenting with her own hair growing formula. In 1906, she we D Charles Joseph CJ walker, a sales and advertising man in Denver. He helped her with marketing strategies and business ideas, and both these and his name were useful. That same year she changed her name from Sarah breedlove to Madame C.J. Walker and launched Madame C.J. Walker's wonderful hair grower. Bundle said, she was one of the women who was a pioneer in a multi-million dollar cosmetics and hair care industry. In 1906, when she founded her company, there was no national distribution for hair care and cosmetics, like when women, like Elizabeth Arden, created her brand. To promote their products, she and CJ traveled the south for 18 months, selling door to door and doing demonstrations, mostly in churches. Convinced by walkers before and after photos, women snapped up tins of her hair grower for 50 cents apiece. By 1908, walker was earning the equivalent of a $150,000 a year in today's money. And she liked to say there would be no hair growing industry if I hadn't invented it. The exact recipe is lost to time, but the original formula included coconut oil, beeswax, petrolatum, which is similar to petroleum jelly, copper sulfate, precipitated sulfur, and a violet scent. A coconut oil is a favorite in hair care today. But the key ingredient was likely sulfur, which had been used in scalp and hair preparations for years. A 2019 study found that an oral form of sulfur known as MSM supported the growth of healthy hair and fingernails, likely because it boosts the development of keratin, a protein necessary for growing hair skin and nails. But back to madam walker, her walker system included a vegetable based shampoo and glossy, which helped smooth hair pressed with her newly designed hot comb. By 1911, walker incorporated, then recruited and trained black women agents who she called beauty culturists in major cities. However, as walker's success grew, her marriage deteriorated. After she caught CJ in an affair, she divorced him in 1912. By this time she lived in Indianapolis, a Midwestern hub of transit and black American life. She hobnobbed with newspaper publishers, and eventually became allied with influential politicians and activists, including Ida B wells, WEB Dubois, Mary McLeod Bethune, and Booker T. Washington, who was one of the most influential black men in the country at that time. In 1916, she settled in New York's Harlem. Then the epicenter of black American culture. She and her daughter, Ben allele walker Robinson, opened a posh salon featuring sweeping columns, velvet seating, parquet floors, and a grand piano in the lobby. In 1917, walker hosted her first national convention for beauty culturists in Philadelphia. And besides inspiring her agents to sell more, she encouraged them to support charitable causes through the Madame C.J. Walker benevolent association. Walker donated money to black colleges and gave to the NAACP's anti lynching fund. Bundle said, she visited The White House in 1917 with a group to try to persuade president Woodrow Wilson to support legislation to make lynching a federal crime. In the early 20th century, there were hundreds and hundreds of lynchings and African American men were targeted. In 1918, walker moved into the villa lewaro, a mansion she had built in irvington on Hudson, about 45 minutes north of Manhattan. With some 20,000 ft² that's about 1900 m², spread over 34 rooms and expansive views of the Hudson River, the home, designed by African American architect Werner Woodson Tandy senior, was a marvel. Sadly, she didn't get to enjoy it for long. Walker died in 1919 at just 52 years old. In her obituary, WEB Dubois wrote, it is given to few persons to transform a people in a generation. Yet this was done by the late Madame C.J. Walker. Her daughter A'Lelia went on to be the most prominent socialite in the Harlem renaissance, facilitating art and culture in her villa lewaro, and beyond. Though the mansion fell out of the family after allele's death, it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1976, and has largely been restored by ambassador Harold E Dolly junior and his wife, who lived there from 1993 to 2018. Dolly, a retired investment banker, and the first African American to own his own seat in the New York Stock Exchange had a toy model.

"Wherever the minute they get close, let me pose this question. Do we think that Like I don't like the notion of Stan Van Gundy coaching Brian. And like all those young players in New Orleans. I know this is an extreme version of that Tony LaRussa is not just nostalgia or a relic. He won a World Series in Oakland. You want to ST Louis? He's been around the game still every day. And I know the other side of that is he hasn't travelled with a baseball team with daily basis or tried to exert his own brand of influence on 20 something he hasn't done that for more than 10 years. So I see the I don't know. I feel the conflict here. But I don't know that the answer is easy is missing. I we've heard a couple of people say, Listen, he would be he would open his mind to analytics the way the game is played. Now it's already open. He's already open analytics. I mean, the last time he managed was 2011 and I don't think analytics for playing his bigger role then is they are now they weren't but he's also we've been told that he would be very much open to the style of play. We're guys, you know, are having fun and showing more personality and everything like that. I just think it's really It's really interesting to me to see the dynamic because Rick Hahn met the media when they decided to move away from Ricky Regnery and said, Hey, listen, we're going to focus on someone who has recent championship experience, so everyone considered it was Cora or was hinge. Right. I mean, Tony won the World Series, but it was 2011. That's not recent. And I just wonder after Rick Hahn has done such a fantastic work. If the fact I would, I would I would love to know how he feels. Truly about the concept ofthe Tony LaRussa being the manager of the baseball team. He's working for an owner. Look, this happens all the time in every sport. And so the contrast may not be the stark, but I could think of basketball teams this year with general managers. You know, President of Vacuum all that I know personally. I know they got a balance their own desires off being a GM with the only desires and what the owner thinks is the best thing that's happened this conflict. Almost always in play more than 50% of the time, right? This time you bring up a great point. What is he truly think about this? How much rope where they're going to give Tony How long would they go with this? Um, is Jerry gonna wake up and say Wait a minute. I can't do this. Jerry and Tony gonna sit down and have a conversation now that he has, if he truly has his permission, are they going to decide what Doug Collins and Jerry decided? That's what it sounds good when they first talked about it, But maybe it's not the greatest idea in the history of that's what I think is ultimately gonna happen. I still can't wrap my arms around Tony LaRussa as the manager of the White side. I have. I have a hard time with it when I was hurt, and whatever it was 40 hours ago, even harder down with today and then I was crying. I was okay when in the history Hubie Brown came back. He was like 69. You want 50 games with Memphis? Hubie was great. I know they don't want a championship. Hubie was great. When he came back to 59. He would thought basketball being what we're used to the more valued I mean, he advocated basketball coaches is definitely lower younger than the average age of baseball managers. Um Jim Leland came back the women Detroit. I mean, he came back anyone. He went so engine. Leland wasn't 70. I mean, he wasn't but he was He was closing in on it. We've seen this work. In both baseball and basketball, You know, I don't know that that's never really worked in football. But man, it's intriguing. Again. How are those guys going to take? Theresa. Are they going to allow him to lead them and provide whatever missing ingredient? Khan and his staff didn't think Was there an existence between rent Sharia energy? Look, we know that these these these lengths of managerial stints don't go for a decade anymore. But, Teo, if I'm the White Sox, I'm still looking for 567 years. Two pair this manager with these great players and a win a world Siri's go to the postseason often maybe get Mohr and at 76. I mean, you're telling me that You, Rick unsaid that he doesn't want to start this and stop it and have to find a new manager in the concept that we have a little Jerry has to say yes. And everything is Sylvia. I'm not going for 678 years anymore. I mean, you look it. I mean, you know, the couple did it successfully? Yes, it was You would. We all think the Cubs They have one more trip to the World Series out of this group. But, you know, they're not gonna have But I don't know. Maybe 345 years. I don't think I don't think 67 years in play. I didn't even play when it worked, Mike, I hear of 2021 doesn't go better that Rossi's out Li E Li is back in. That's what I'm here. When I'm here long as we get eyes only have a couple of Lance. I might be for that Lelia ramp. So, yeah, this is but Now. Is there any real talk? I just heard somebody on ESPN talk about the beard. Liv E. On bill of any thought that The Bears. You know, I was explaining the Matthew, he said the media today not understanding the history of a franchise and how football that seems to play more like the Steelers is a continuum. If you will, a personality that exist in football, much more so than any other sport, except for maybe the Celtics Lakers in basketball, But the.

"It's about exercise and getting my exercise in for staying other mornings. It's about the making sure that i get my meditation time in or some journaling time men and connecting with that part of myself that <hes> drew you know my inner self my i sold my true me. <hes> i want that to be able to come out and shine so i give it some time and attention so that i'm listening to myself and making sure that whatever's going on during the day that i that i'm staying connected to me so that whatever happens during the day i can show up in my best self and then it's off to the office. Sometimes it's about going off <hes> off to meetings and an engaging with other people <hes> <hes> went to a coffee and conversation nabo program a couple mornings ago. Jill branson did a wonderful program program networking and <hes> <hes> so but it is about going into the office connecting with the crew <hes> who's ever there during the day. Sometimes it's about reaching out via phone. Call <hes> an it's mind you i'm overseeing and managing a company now. I'm not doing everything that i used to do. I we delegate. I delegate a lot of tasks to other people that are now employees and so it's overseeing everything so i have a little bit more freedom now which is nice and there are still days. When you know of course <hes> there are requirements for me in the office and and i show up and do that so <hes> it's about engaging with people it's about engaging with the crew the the you know the company <hes> but it is about engagement in the community as well so there's a little bit of all that and then of course there's taco time you know we try to get a taco. Time is a week and that's literally taco taha. How can we get together and eat tacos. We you know it's it's about <hes> it's also about shopping. It's also about cooking. One of my passions is cooking. I love love to do that. It's kind of a white space for me where i can let things go and i don't have to do anything and get in this creative space and i love making beautiful food food for my family. I always have been so. I love going out and getting yummy things from the grocery coming home and making a lovely meal for the family family were sometimes. It's about getting together and everybody eating but a lot of times. It's just we're very casual in its whenever anybody shows up. There's food to eat so <hes>. There's that piece to and in every week almost every day so are so. Would you say that those are the things that you also do to practice self-care. Yes yes indeed it is for sure and then. I also have my my other business. Which is my side hustle as ruthie. Would i'd say ruth ferment. Is it really a site side-hustle it seems to me like i realize you do it on the side but you really love it i do. It's my original passion. Passion my static work. I got licensed when i was twenty and i'm fifty four now. So it's a long time i've been doing facials and waxing seeing and all of that and i've practiced for at least twenty some years of those years. I took a few off to raise raise my kids at home. I i was at home actually ten years <hes> i i volunteer during those years <hes> with my kids but <hes> i was a stay at home mom for a long time but is it really a side hustle. I don't know that it's a side hustle. I don't know that i'm looking to gain new clients or whatever whatever at this point and it kind of just pays for itself it's not it's not a practice that is <hes> you know making me money but it it makes me it makes me very joyful and and that is very important. I think anything that you can do that. Helps bring you. Joy is a really good thing. I think it's a joy oy a spark of creative process and helps us in our personal life and our business life yeah so you get to choose the clients that you want to bring on on yes when when well here in your space they come here. You know that's a great way to connect with people to it is it's an amazing way to connect and it's i mean so i believe i'm an impact off and a sensitive and <hes> the aesthetic world was away for me to be able to practice and and i use energy <hes> my personal energy when i'm doing treatments and and i it's definitely a way for me to connect individually with people and support and help people individually and and during the work that i do there are things things that go on in my heart and in my mind <hes> that maybe the client doesn't necessarily know about and they don't have to know about it. Sometimes i'll pick up on something in all. We'll we'll start a new conversation. Oh what about that you know and then they'll talk about it and sometimes we're able she's able to work something out on the table and that's wonderful wonderful and sometimes it's just about sharing energy so i it's it's a it's a vehicle for me to be able to continue my my my energy work if you i will write that connection making that connection yeah again you know you just you listen to yourself if feels like a lot in the decisions that you make in the life life that you've created yourself. Yes indeed it's intentional. Yes my life that my my life is very intentional and has been for a long time <hes> <hes>. I think that it's just the way i want it. You know i. I want my life to be intentional. I mean of course there's things that happened. I was going to pick up dana the other day we were going to go meet with <hes> one of the council women over in henderson and i i pull up and hit the curb and my my tire gets punctured and dana ends up driving us instead of me driving us <hes> <hes> and that was wonderful and fantastic and i got back and i had a flat tire. My son came out put the donut on my on my <hes> wheel and i ended ended up with a set of new tires you know not everything happens intentionally and things happen as they have been an we deal with them as we go and so of course unintentional things happen during the day and it's i i sometimes have to shift into my schedule to take care of the emergency and luckily i'm able to do that. I've set my life up so that i can do that so that i have the room in the space space to be able to do what i need to do as i do it right and that's what you mean by intentional. That's what i mean by attention. Yeah yeah so i see you have a book that you that you brought and with you one of my favorite. That's one of my favorites too. That's a classic this four agreements. I never get tired of the spoke and it seems like i'm in the middle. See i'm in the process of reading it again <hes> i i just it's just it's it's transformational. Don't you think it's like okay so the first one is be impeccable with your word if we're impeccable with our word and speak with integrity and we you say only what we mean and avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others using the power of your word in the direction of truth in love it will transform your life right those are those are powerful words. Don't take anything personally. You know. Nothing nothing others do is because of you. Wow that's a revelation just that line alone. That's a revelation. Nothing others do is because is because of me okay. We'll so then we're all living in our own dream. State role live in our own bubble in our own world and if somebody says something to me that doesn't resonate wow that's not about me. That's about them and their perception. They're projecting their ideas about what they think what they're perceiving adding onto me. Do i accept that if it's not true no i don't accept that it's and it's okay. You can have your opinion but that is not. I'd that is not who i am right so what others do and say as a projection of their own reality in their own dream when you're immune to the opinions and actions of others you won't be the victim of needless suffering emotional suffering. I think we all suffer so emotionally you know over things that may be what somebody has said or or what we think somebody has meant and really when we get over that there is no suffering from that angle yeah and don't make assumptions functions this is this was important for me. Find the courage to ask the questions and to express what you really want communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings sadness and drama with just this agreement you can completely transform your life so it does take courage to look within and to find the right questions to ask that's been the that is a journey journey for me. That is something that i work at on a regular basis is being able to how do i ask the right question to get the answer answer that i really need not only from from outside of me but internally from inside asking the right questions and then always do your best you know and sometimes you're going to do your best or you show up differently every day every day's a little bit different for everybody and i it says he's here. You know it's different from when you're healthy as opposed to sick so you show up. You're not feeling great that day. You know what you're not. You may not give a hundred percent that maybe you're gonna give eighty percent that day but under under any circumstance simply do your best and you will avoid self judgment self abuse and regret mhm though the. I don't know that that just ins needless suffering. Do you think it does that is a book that i used to read every year and i need to really get back to that. Remember when i first purchased it it was more like a an eye opening experience and then every time i read it i get something new out of it and depending on where i am in my life you know and now it serves as reminders for me. It's i look at that. Book is just kind of a back to basics. It's so simple. It's well written as easy to read yet mall.

"Thank you cree so pleased to be here. I am so happy. You're here now. We run in a lot of the same circles we do. We're both part of nabo. Yes which is the national association of women business owners s a report of the southern nevada. Chapter yes which is how we met a you do so many amazing things in the community. You have an interesting business and life story. And i can't wait to dig in. Okay yes. i'm ready yet. Tell tell us about tough skin. Oh so tough. Skin was developed by my husband and our company our team back in two thousand five. The idea came and in two thousand seven we created the llc and it was its own entity at that time and tough skin was a solution is a solution to a problem that we had no idea was out there. We were unfamiliar with natural stone. And how some natural stones. Calcium based natural stones have a propensity for etching in staining. Which is you know. These white marks and coffee can stain and red wine can stain. These beautiful natural countertops. And there's no sealer to protect them so out of owning a window film company. My husband's you said. I'll just take a window film and put it on a piece of marble and let's see what happens and because nothing could touch the stone. Nothing damage the stone and we found that if we tweaked the the product of the film a little bit. Then it was. It made it so that it lays down on the stump beautifully. Has its own specific. Adhesive made for stone. It's a breathable polyester and this hard coat that we have is superior to anything else on the market so we really designed a thin film technology for stone yet. What was the catalyst even trying to put your stone on a countertop to to protect it well what happened was frank was at one of the hotel. Casinos that we serviced and fracture has been breaks. My husband and it's you know. We did window film back in the day designer film products as well and he was working with a hotel operations guy and he said to frank. Do you know anything about stone. I'm having a really hard time. Twenty four hour cafe that had red marble tops throughout the entire cafe and they were having to remove tables out of the cafe and take them down into their basement and refinish them and bring them back and this was a process that happened on a weekly basis because they were constantly being damaged and they were exhausted. They were like this is not a solution. We need a solution for this. And so we protect countertops. Tables.
