13th & Joan Publishing Founder Ardre Orie Launches US Book Tour for VH1’s Amina Buddafly

imageTell our audience about 13th & Joan?

13th & Joan is a multi media publishing company that creates words and images to change the world. Our book publishing arm is becoming a household name in the hearts and minds of many and we are just getting started.

What compelled you to start 13th & Joan?

I started 13th & Joan because I wanted to create media that feeds our souls and tells our stories. I believe that every face has a story and every person deserves to be heard. 13th & Joan has helped many to achieve their goal of becoming an author and I couldn’t be more proud than to be a small part of their journey and their dreams!

What’s next for 13th & Joan?

We are in the process of expanding our Author Coaching Services to accommodate more clients. It is sheer joy to watch people who dare to dream achieve their goal of becoming an author. We are also in the process of ghostwriting some amazing books for some household names. Lastly, we are preparing to launch a US Book Tour for client Amina Pankey. The world knows her as Amina Buddafly from VH1’s Love and Hip Hop New York.

Tell us more about the tour for Amina. What can her fans and followers expect?

I am excited to oversee the planning and execution of Amina’s book tour because I believe in thinking outside of the box. I want to ensure that each book signing is an experience for her fans and followers. She had an idea to do an acoustic perforance at each stop and I think that it will be a great way for people to connect with her on a deeper level. Far too often, we are consumed with the images of people that we see on tv and we don’t really know them or their stories. It is awesome to watch Amina prepare to tell the world exactly who she is. She is uber talented and she has so much to offer through her story and through her music. Her book and this tour is yet another opportunity for her to shine.

How has it been working with Amina? Is she like what you see on tv?

Amina is a joy to work with because she is genuine. I have not watched the show in depth but I have had the privilege of working with her as a person. There are so many people who pretend but she is a real woman, working to follow her dreams and to raise her beautiful babies. I relate to her as a working mother who knows exactly what she had to offer the world. Not to mention, she can really sing!

How did the US Tour come about?
As we began to round out the completion of the publishing process, we discussed next steps. This is something that I do with all of my clients to ensure that they have a strategy after the book is completed. Amina and I began to brainstorm and dream together and determined that this partnership would be a natural progression for her book as well as 13th & Joan.
What cities can we expect the tour to visit?
We have received so many requests for Amina already and we hadn’t even made the official announcement but we have strategized to make appearances in Atlanta, Miami, DC, NY, LA, Dallas, New Orleans and Las Vegas.

What can readers expect?
The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth (laughs).

You work so hard, what do you want the world to know about your work?
I believe that every face has a story and we all deserve to be listened to and valued for our stories. I acquired the nickname “Queen of Storytelling” because I will do whatever it takes to ensure that others have a way to leave a piece of themselves with the world. Our stories live on long after we depart this earth. To me, that is building legacy. We all deserve such an opportunity.

Q and A with Author, Phylencia “PT” Taylor

Tell us a little about you

I AM A…Woman, a Mom, a Beauty Culturalist, Consultant, an Adjunct Professor and Multi-Media Content Curator. I wear many hats, my life is busy and complex, like most women aspiring to continually evolve. But, I strive daily to keep what’s most important top of mind–my family and tribe of friends.
How did you get started in the beauty industry?
I’ve always loved the beauty industry–the way beauty

products uplift a woman’s spirits and on the contrary how beauty shapes the world we live in. I started in beauty as a Brand Manager for Johnson Products, I re-staged the 20th year anniversary of Gentle Treatment, the first no-lye relaxer. Johnson had just been acquired by Wella Corporation and it was my training ground for the Beauty Industry.  I went on to manage national beauty campaigns Bailey’s Beauty Shop and Crown Royal Barber Shop.  I’ve also worked at Carol’s Daughter as Sr. Brand Manager as well.

 How has your experience working in  corporate America impacted your career as an author, beauty culturalist and consultant? 

My corporate career created vital experiences and knowledge.

Some of it was training and learning the job and industry, but about 60% is understanding the interactions and way of workings.

A bit like going to an HBUC–the encounters and events can’t fully be explained without experiencing them first hand. As a Beauty Culturalist the opportunity to study intercultural beauty influences was enhanced because in Corporate America there are great budgets for beauty industry benchmark research data–IRI, Nielson, Mintel and EuroMonitor to name a few. The baseline research that I believe will be partially replaced in the future by social research from Beauty Influencers.  And lastly, my corporate background is a bit different from most.  I’ve worked on the Corporate and Agency sides of the business, always working to get closer to the consumer mindset and create campaigns to increase awareness and sales.  As a consultant, the Corporate experiences were paramount in understanding what my now clients want and need. My corporate experience shaped my business acumen like no other position.  Though the Corporate promotional ladders and politics are heavily layered.  It’s a bigger, different perspective that is required to understand the Beauty industry on many levels.

 

 What are 3 tips you can give to having longevity in the beauty industry 

Three tips for longevity in the beauty industry:
  • Develop a business plan,budget and a projected P&L
  • Research, Research, Research.  Get to know the industry;  past, present and projected future–industry icons, trends, patterns and influencers and consumers.
  • Create partnerships with more established people and brands that can help you learn and navigate the business.
  • Know they Self – Get to know  your brand, brand personality and brand profile. Knowing this will allow you to stay true to yourself.
What upcoming projects are you working on? 
  • I am a Consultant & Content Curator for a new Beauty Magazine, so I ‘m looking forward to helping them build their brand.
  • I’m also working on some Multi-Media beauty platforms for
    client/consumers based operations.

    The 2017 calendar is already evolving.
