I have a specific memory of a conversation that took place about a month before I launched Mod + Jo. It was in the spring of 2016 and I was sitting in the back of a taxi with a fellow expat, in the middle of Chinese rush our traffic, telling her about my idea behind the brand. She asked me point blank if I felt that I would try and take this concept full time once we moved back to the states. I remember thinking that this idea was absurd and completely out of my reach. I still look upon this small moment so fondly, because it shows me how far Mod + Jo has come as a brand in such a short amount of time. Don't let me fool you - there were a lot of long nights and plenty of self doubt and failure along the way. But there was also passion to create something that helped women feel confident and a little more fierce. It wasn't just that drive that brought us this new chapter - YOU have truly made this dream come true. Without your love and support of Mod + Jo, non of this would have been able to come to fruition and for that I am so grateful. Together, we've created a sustainable brand that is slowly creating more jobs within the local community and building a tribe of women that build each other up through commonality and setting aside our differences. I will never be able to express my full gratitude for you being here, reading this, and following along with Mod + Jo's journey. From the entire team of Mod + Jo, we love you and we're so glad you're here.
