Meet Juicey the Goddess. The name alone speaks volumes. Juicey not only owns and manages Playtime Preschool but she is also a model and an author of The Bad Bytch Rule Book. Ambition Mag caught up with Juicey to learn more about what keeps her going.
Ambition Mag: What inspired the start of these 3 very different projects that you are working on?
Juicey Adoir: My main priority is the preschool that will accommodate 158 kids. Educating children is one of the most important things. My mother worked for the Department of Education and has been extremely influential. My mother actually owned Playtime Preschool when we were growing up and closed it when I graduated from high school. When I got older I went down to the Secretary of State and purchased the name because it was still available. So I’m just carrying on the legacy.
The modeling actually began about a year ago [when I was] approached by a photographer in the club. I went on to do a photo shoot with the photographer that brought on a lot of print offers and was very well received. I was really surprised by that and after only modeling for about 2 months I was nominated for an Ohio Hip Hop Award.
Then there is the ‘The Bad Bytch Rulebook.’ I have been writing the book for years. Ever since I have been an adult I’ve been keeping a diary of my experiences. So it pretty much wrote itself. With every situation I created a rule/guideline for me to follow from then on, making it a guidebook on staying focused. This year, I hit 100 and began sharing them on social networks. As I began sharing the rules I received request to put them in book form. I did receive a few publishing offers but decided to self publish. The publishing houses didn’t like that the name had Bytch in it and wanted to change it. I didn’t want to change the name and decided to self-publish, so the book will be available on Amazon, my personal website and Kindle.
AM: What do you find easy and enjoyable?
JA: I enjoy everything.
AM: What were some of the struggles you’ve experienced?
JA: The preschool is difficult because of regulations. With the modeling you just have to live and people either like or they don’t. I also struggle with girls asking me for relationship advice, because I feel the focus should be on career and not n***as.
AM: What are your goals for the future and expansion?
JA: I may do a book tour depending on the success of the book. I am also currently working on a clothing line to come out late 2012/ early 2013. The line will be sexy but inexpensive club wear.
AM: Do you have any advice for other aspiring entrepreneurs?
JA: There is power in your own handwriting. Keep Goals, and vision boards. Mediate!
Juicey is making 2012 her year to shine by developing multiple streams of income and living in the moment. I am sure this is not the last we will see of this positive and motivated spirit!
