Are you a fan of natural hair care products? Miko Branch, hair care pioneer, CEO and Co-Founder of Miss Jessie’s, joined Bold Business to share her journey creating Miss Jessie’s with her older sister, Titi Branch.
“We absolutely complimented one another; Titi was the older sister [and] I’m the younger. There was already a [big/little] sister dynamic, which served us well in our business relationship,” Branch said.

She told us more about her sister, Titi, who committed suicide in 2014. Branch said Titi was an excellent communicator and organizer, which made it possible for Branch to focus on her craft as a hair expert.
“We wrote this book to be helpful. Titi and I realized that we were influencers and we encouraged many people [primarily women] to embrace their natural hair,” Branch said.
“We also realized that we could be influencers in the areas of business — sharing our story on how we did it from scratch and how we were able to be resourceful without having business school training or any formal mentors. We shared our story and how we were able to use our god-given talent and put it into the partnership, to create something out of nothing!”
