First Dose. Doing My Part.

I’ve never even had a flu shot and like most people hate needles – I have vivid traumatic memories of having vaccines at school as a child and kids would be crying and being dragged to the chair for their dose. I wasn’t totally one of those but I do remember crying and getting some sort of scab after which got torn off – I still have a mark of my arm from it.

When my daughter and son were growing up and had the suggested vaccines – I was the wreck and they were fine.

That said and fast forward – like many who’d like to have life here back to some semblance of new normalcy, I couldn’t believe each time I was waiting and searching for my turn and availability.

When live music returns it’s going to be a must for artists as well, but most importantly to do my part on the larger scale to help us all get out of this pandemic as soon and safely as possible.

Welcome April.

Wishing everyone the best of the month.

Wattage Thoughts. To The Labeled Women. Keep Going.

That’s it. That’s the post..because of these things and more — you will be disliked, mocked, demeaned, bullied, disrespected, lied on, smeared.. keep going, carry on.

If people can’t control you – they will try to influence how others view you don’t let it stop you. Never let anyone dim your light – they hate your success, resilience and journey.

Happy 32 Anniversary – Jody Watley – Larger Than Life Album

Jody Watley – Larger Than Life. Cover Art: Photography by Steven Meisel

Released #OTD March 27, 1989:

“Larger Than Life”

The platinum second Solo album

by GRAMMY® winner Jody Watley

Featured Billboard Multi-Chart Top 10 Hits

“Real Love”

“Friends” (ft. Eric B. & Rakim *groundbreaker)

“Everything”

Along with the breezy 4th single “Precious Love”

Fashion forward visuals, a groundbreaking collaboration “Friends” ft Eric B & Rakim and one of MTV’s most nominated videos “Real Love” directed by David Fincher – the concept of “Larger Than Life” was the mindset of going big for your dreams – make it memorable – make it big! Some of my favorite non singles are “Something New” “For Loves Sake” “Once You Leave” .. proud of the entire album! Loved the tour as well, despite efforts behind the scenes to undermine and sabotage it – saving that for my memoir.

Happy Anniversary and here’s to always making life memorable, having a vision for yourself, making goals and exceeding expectations.

Jody Watley Honored Today 100SWB.com Awards Global Conference.

There are so many outstanding women in business celebrated today from around the world by the Global Trade Chamber, it was an honor to be amongst them.

“Women are often the first to be marginalized, demeaned, paid less, disrespected, uncredited ..but we make it happen regardless and I’m thankful to God, the universe and all positive forces that keep me motived, with tenacity, enthusiasm for all of it… Let’s all continue to be beacons of light – inspiring others, being fearless and overcoming any obstacles we may face..” – Jody Watley
