Jody Watley Dance To Fitness. A Milestone Classic Photo Of The Day

If there is no opportunity or representation-create it. Flashback to 1990 – “Dance to Fitness” which went on to become a number one fitness million selling video – “I wanted to do this because there were no videos by women of color in the health and fitness market..it was time and my music is perfect for it.”

Of the many business and marketing ideas (clothing line, cosmetic endorsements, a signature perfume) I had back then, this is one that actually came to fruition.

Another reason I’m so happy for Rihanna with her endeavors – the times often dictate and the door is opened a bit wider each generation.
