Courtney Adeleye had gone to her daughter’s school with the rest of her family in tow as she needed to talk to one of the teachers. Then, when Adeleye found the woman she had been searching for, they stepped outside. And in the end, the educator would be left in floods of tears.
Even before that day, though, Adeleye had built a life around giving back. To begin with, she had worked as a nurse. After that, she invested $500 into a side business in healthy haircare. That company would become The Mane Choice, which had raked in $25 million of sales within five years of its founding.
And not only does Adeleye help women strengthen their hair with The Mane Choice products, but she also regularly performs acts of charity. For instance, she has launched an Instagram giveaway called “Pay My Bill”; this scheme sees the entrepreneur compensate a follower of hers every week.
