Get to Know Joy Deja King:
What did you have to sacrifice in order to get to where you are now, and how did you manage your time?
Once I decided that I wanted success, the first thing I had to do was focus on my goals. Once I started focusing on my goals I had to delete all the things in my life that didn’t motivate me to accomplish them. I cut back on a lot of unnecessary partying. Surrounded myself with people that were also goal oriented and believed in the success I wanted to achieve for myself. And most importantly, I stayed on my grind. Every time I checked off one accomplishment I kept adding more.
I am always worrying about the future, and about making it in life. Where did you start out and how long did it take you to become what you consider to be successful?
I wrote my first book in 2004. I spent my last dime getting that book out there and it paid off, because in 2005 I got two publishing deals. At that point I felt success was within my reach. Then when I started my own publishing company, A King Production in 2008 and my book Queen Bitch became a #1 Bestseller on the Essence Bestsellers list for 7 months straight in 2009, I said yeah, I’ve reached a certain level of success. But it wasn’t until 2010 after I went through a long court battle with one of my publishers, and I won the rights back to my Bitch Series, and that financial stress was over, and I could take care of me and my family the way I always wanted to, that I finally considered myself to be successful. So it took me six years to get to that point in my book career, and now I’m back to square one because I’m jumping into the music industry where I have zero success. But I’m excited because I love staying hungry and we’ll see how long it takes me to consider myself to be successful with my new venture.
As a woman in your area of industry, how important is it to have fashion sense?
For me it’s imperative. But whether I was in the industry or not fashion would be important to me because I think women and men get an extra high when they feel their visual is on point. But of course the more exposure you get the more pressure you feel to always have your fashion game together because you know people are quick to slaughter you if it’s not.
What’s the baddest pair of shoes do you have in your closet?
It’s actually a pair of Fendi Fur trimmed Boots. I jumped out the window for those boots but I had to have them! LOL!
Do you have a favorite show designer?
I love Giuseppe Zanotti and I’m also a huge fan of Lamb which is Gwen Stefani’s shoe line. But there are plenty of shoe stores in New York that have amazing shoes for great prices, which I love too!
Tell us why you think your song “I’m The Bomb” is something every woman needs to hear?
I believe most women feel unappreciated. When they listen to “I’m The Bomb” I want all women to know that no matter where you are in your life, if you don’t know your worth and don’t think you are the bomb nobody else will either. Hopefully when that beat hits them, they’ll be nodding their heads saying I’m The Bomb too!
