hello there!

So glad you made it to my corner of the world wide web. I’m Sandra, a 30-something, multipotentialite living in the Big Apple on a mission to build a beauty business called CurlScout. I’m just a regular girl with a lot of heart and a lot of hustle. I don’t come from a family of entrepreneurs, I’m a lawyer by trade, and my path to launching CurlScout feels a bit like the wild wild west more often than not. There’s no rule book and I am out here trying to figure this thing out.

I started this site as a way to document my journey and my truths along this path to entrepreneurship and building my business. This is where you’ll get a dose of my reality – the good, the bad and the ugly. I want to document my process and share it with the world in hopes that I can connect with other like-minded hustlers and share what it is really like to take the leap and build a business.

I hope that through my journey I can share a lot of hepful nuggets and inspire other aspiring entrepreneurs along the way. I look forward to sharing my journey. I invite you to come along.
