When the two aren’t on tour, writing books and blogs or working on their multiple businesses you can find them doing what they love most, spending time with their family, traveling, visiting bookstores and reading fashion magazines.


Pierce encourages other people who are thinking about going into business with their son or daughter to respect one another, speak up, voice their opinions, and make sure it is not a forced effort.

“Sometimes if they are your parents, you don’t want to over step any boundaries and you still want to be respectful,” said Pierce. “At the same time, you have to bring your younger aspect, show them, test things out and don’t get easily offended by things. That way the relationship can stay smooth and intact.”

Pierce also goes on to express the importance of separating family time from business.

“When it’s family time, it’s family time and when it’s business, it’s business. If you keep the two pretty much separate, then you won’t have as many issues,” said Pierce.

Dr. Pierce motivates young women who are thinking about starting their own business but have been discouraged, to push themselves to start slowly.

“A lot of the time, we get discouraged because we are looking too big, we are looking at a big picture and we feel like we can’t tackle it,” said Dr. Pierce. “Start before you are ready. You don’t have to start alone. There are classes, courses, coaching, and workshops. There is so much help you get in business right now that it is really easy to start a business right now than ever in history.”
