Electra Davis is the CEO and founder of Mysteek Naturals, a company that specializes in making chemical-free hair and dental products. The 35-year-old veteran started the small business in 2016 driven by her desire to safely give a pop of color to people’s lives.
Davis has a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in accounting, which she has used to steer her business to success. Rolling out spoke with the young entrepreneur about how she’s changing lives with her unique company.
What was the driving force behind creating Mysteek Naturals?

What are three key elements that have assisted you in transforming your business?
