Play episode · 52 min

Marriage takes work. This is especially true when you literally work with your spouse. Having your partner at your side all day at work and then for the rest of the night at home isn’t for everyone, but for married entrepreneurs, Kim and Tim, they couldn’t see life any other way.

Kim and Tim Lewis, the Co-Founders of Curl Mix, which was featured on ABC’s “Shark Tank shares their story of young romance, failed business, and bouncing back to be a force to be reckoned with. Learn how Kim started Curl Mix alongside her husband, how she became a self-taught freelance photographer, and what she learned in the process.

She and her husband/co-founder Tim have gone from mixing small batches of their clean beauty product for curly hair in their South Side kitchen to moving into a small business incubator on the city’s Near West Side.

Employing a staff of 25, Kim and Tim get to help people feed their families and pay their mortgages. It’s the satisfaction of providing opportunities for others that keeps them going. And the love they have for one another that is at the heart of this story.
