About Jodymiller
Joined August 2013
Hi! Happy to be here. Looking to become financially self-sufficient again. After having my own pr agency in entertainment for 25 years, supporting myself and raising my daughter, I retired, went back to school and started another business - totally different - as a designer of luxury dog apparel and accessories called Couture by Sophie. The company is named after my Portuguese Podengo pup (in the pic), who is an awesome little girl! She's become quite the swimmer lately, jumping in and out of our pool, on and off of water rafts, that I swear she's a Portuguese Water Dog disguised as a Podengo.

UPDATE 1/9/15: Seven months ago, we rescued a dog from Manhattan's Animal Care and Control. He's part Patterdale Terrier and part Jack Russell (maybe even some Dachshund - who knows?), about a year old and a total handful! We named him Jasper.

Jasper and Sophie were meant to be at first sight. Watching them play is really entertaining and cute (Soph is the ultimate flirt and tease and Jas hasn't a clue but loves to play like a locomotive train. Sound like all boy, or what?).

Since I wrote this bio just after joining, Bark & Swagger has grown a lot! I have about 10K visitors a month; have a FB page with close to 14,000 fans and have my own radio show on pet fashion (also called Bark & Swagger) on Pet Life Radio. PLR is the largest pet radio network in the world, with 7 million on demand listeners and another 100 million potentials through its affiliation with iHeart and iTunes Radio networks. I'm also a Contributing Editor to Hamptons Pet magazine, a quarterly national luxury pet lifestyle mag.

So, I'm BUSY! I've been absent from WA for months and feel badly about that. But, with the new year, I've made a commitment to be more present here, to share all of the really insightful, cool and, I hope, helpful info I come across via colleagues in the industry.

I relaunched Couture by Sophie in November of 2014 with a new website (www.couturebysophie.com), a fun opt-in quiz called How Luxury Are You? which you can access at the top of the home page, and a :60 video of Sophie and her bestie, Holly, getting ready for a shopping date. It's called La Date d'Achat (the shopping date) and you can see it on the homepage of my site.

Couture by Sophie uses cruelty-free materials, and gives a portion of each sale to the Best Friends Society of New York,

My passions are helping animals and people. Other interests are spending time with my family and designing/making dog clothes that are an expression of my aesthetics. Learned how to sew in the last couple of years and having fun being creative. I think WA is a great place to learn the ropes of internet marketing; it taught me soooo much, and I'm still learning. Wishing all of you much success here. Be consistent and don't quit and you'll see results. It doesn't happen overnight; it takes time. But, like the tortoise and the hare, the steady progress works. See you online!

Money Goals
Hi - my financial goals are to be completely self sufficient and to have enough money to have a comfortable retirement. I would be happy earning over $150,000 a year. I would be ecstatic earning over $500,000 a year or more. I'm shooting for the stars, here! :-) I am willing to invest as much time as it takes. This can be my full time job; I retired from my last career 4 years ago and my Couture by Sophie new business can be piggybacked into what I'm doing here. So I'm good and I'm excited by the prospects.

Good day Jody and welcome to the Wealthy Affiliate community! The first thing I suggest you do is jump into a live chat and introduce yourself. You will find this on the main Dashboard within WA. Here you will find other members within the community (including myself) that you will be able to communicate with, network with and get help with. :)

Lots of help here and a lot of people that care about your personal success. If you get stuck, simply ask! I look forward to working with you!

Oh, and I wanted to also point you in the direction of the Getting Started Course which is located on your dashboard, and in the main menu under recommended training "Getting Started".

Hey Steve - I consider myself blessed that when researching whether a site I was checking out about making $ online was a scam, your site came up and, through that, I found WA. I feel really good about this community and look forward to the journey. Already into the course. Read your 9 tips. All good and thanks!
