Today, we have the pleasure of interviewing Adori Dionne, Founder of Adori Dionne Beauty Chicago.
Adori Dionne specializes in skincare for all skin types, haircare, makeup, fragrances, bath and body, men's grooming, health, and beauty products.
Hi, please tell us about what it is that you do?
We provide mobile spa service for men and women, for example, massages, eyelashes extension, face beats (makeup consultation/application), facials, body waxing, ear candling & v-steaming (v-steaming or yoni steaming, is an alternative health treatment where a woman squats or sits over steaming water. Sometimes the water contains herbs such as mugwort, rosemary, wormwood, and basil. The steam's warmth is supposed to soften and open the pores of the vaginal and vulvar skin so that the herbs can be absorbed into the skin and uterus and impart medicinal effects). Our products contain natural ingredients that naturally lighten the skin and create an even skin tone. Adori Dionne continues to be inspired by a community of passionate women of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Can you please tell us more about your journey?
Believe me, this journey has not been easy. I have a lot of discipline issues with my son Stephen who is now 11 years of age. The issues start becoming uncontrolled since age 5. My son has been diagnosed with ADHD. Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a chronic condition that affects millions of children and often continues into adulthood. ADHD includes a combination of persistent problems, such as difficulty sustaining attention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior. Stephen has also been diagnosed with Emotional dysregulation- or the inability to properly modulate and regulate emotions-is often seen in people with ADHD. However, it isn't listed as a symptom of ADHD in the DSM-V, which has increasingly focused on hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattention. In 2017 I had a series of unfortunate events which resulted in losing my place of employment, lost custody of my son due to false allegations, and was incarcerated. Facing homelessness. The fact that my son has this medical condition has caused a lot of strain on and my health. But through all that I have gone through, and it is an ongoing process but, I had to renew my mind in God's word, and through that, my life began to do an upward turnaround.

What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?
One of the successful strategies that I used was to renew my mindset in Jesus Christ by attending church regularly & classes within the church. Also began to read the book by my Pastor John Eckhardt & another author Charles Capps. The book helps me to overcome the areas of depression, low self-esteem. Also, how to speak to my dead situation no matter how bad your situation looks, you always speak positive and God word( which is the Holy Bible.) Life and death are in the power of the tongue, so always speak life.
In addition to the strategies mentioned when faced with difficult circumstances, one can also try:
- Take a shower or bath.
- Watch a comedy TV show or movie. A funny movie that is one of the best strategies. My mother told me at a young age Laughter is like medicine to the soul. Research shows that laughter can keep you Healthy, according to the Mayo Clinic. Research has found both short and long-term benefits: Laughter can increase oxygen to the heart, lungs, and muscles, increase the endorphins released by your brain, improve your mood and reduce physical pain.
- Spend time with friends and/or family
- Talk to someone you trust
- Lower your expectations of the situation
- Keep an inspirational quote with you.
- Write a list of goals.
- Take a class
- Pray or meditate
Any message for our readers.
Keep your faith in God. Speak and encourage yourself. For example, I will get through this situation. Keep laughing.
Fantastic, so how can people find out more about you?
I am writing my first book and starting a non for profit organization in memory of my niece Jessica. She was 19 years of age in 2019 when she lost her life due to gun violence. So yes, you will hear more from me.
