Thinking back to when I was a little girl, with so many dreams and goals – having my own business was always on my list. As an artist and a woman in business I’m never waiting on anyone to make it happen – that’s my advice. Go get it!

The Jody Watley Boutique continues to thrive. We’ve shipped PARADISE and other merchandise in the store to over 15 countries and despite a few kinks early on things are running smoothly.

I’ll be adding a luxury soy candle collection for the holidays. As well I’m working on a a capsule collection of luxury T-shirts as well – Jody Watley meets Rick Owens and Helmut Lang.

It’s In The Music!!
