When it comes to entrepreneurship, "Doux" owner and mom of five, Maya Smith, knows how to set up shop almost anywhere. She opened her first salon abroad, during an extended stay in Germany, where her beauty parlor became the premier spot for women's natural haircare needs and one of the first fab meet-up spaces for curly girls to catch up.
While maintaining a growing business, Smith also managed to hold down a marriage, and be a pretty cool mom to her five sons. Fast forward seven years and she's now stateside, with a new business, new brand and an even savvier state of mind. See what Maya had to say when I caught up with her at Black Enterprise
