JOYCEE

Joycee Awosika is an award winning entrepreneur, Structure and Process Expert, Global speaker, Management Consultant, Energy Economist, Beauty and Wellness Enthusiast and has a passion for being trained and training others.

the journey to where I am today...

At the age of 13, I started my first business – a babysitters club and shortly after a refreshment-selling platform, a hairstyling business for kids and I started tutoring. I’ve always worn multiple hats and have managed to soar through it all. Little did I know, that years later and relocating to another Continent would inspire me to share what has always seemed so natural to me.

I’m a mother to two young boys that are 2 and 1 and I take that job very seriously. They are major reasons why my passion for structure has propelled me because they deserve a present mother who prioritizes them.

Do you want to know what lights me up? Making people feel that they can achieve their goals and that they can do everything that’s important to them. I know all too well how the journey of juggling home and business or home and career can get really lonely and I hope to be a cheerleader and a teacher showing how “you really can do this.” You can manage your home with ease and less of a headache, you can soar in your workplace while juggling extracurricular activities and raising kids, and you can open a business with multiple locations and take a vacation without thinking your hard work will come crashing down.

I promise you, it can be done.

THERE IS NO EARLY OR LATE START: START NOW
