Rising Stars: Meet Ife Boyd

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ife Boyd.

Ife, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
In June 2012, just four days after my son Kelly Jr 4th birthday the love of life suffered a diabetic heart attack and suddenly passed away at 36. I became a single mother raising two children on my own. Because of his sudden death, I suffered an extreme amount of stress and health issues and with the doctor’s advice, I looked into a healthy lifestyle and diet and began juicing to save my own life and in 2016, kellysjuicebar was born.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
It has been amazing very rewarding especially being able to share my story and to empower my children and people everywhere to juice. Of course financially and learning the business aspects has had its challenges, however every time I want to give up I remember why I started. Not only did I start a business and started a lifestyle.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am an Alumni of ASU and FIDM (fashion institute) so my background is visual communication and fashion. I was an image consultant for many years and had my own business Ifestyle, I had primary professional athletes and the entertainment industry I was also in the high-end retail business in which I worked for Saks fifth avenue Nemian Marcus and last Bloomingdale’s. So customer service and client building is my strong points that is why I decided to make kellysjuicebar a delivery service only so that we can go direct to clients.

We’re always looking for the lessons that can be learned in any situation, including tragic ones like the Covid-19 crisis. Are there any lessons you’ve learned that you can share?
Health is wealth and the only thing is business is relationship matter most!!! With a strong customer relationship building strategy during times like this, your business can not survive with out it. People matter to me the most.
