CREATIVES: Entrepreneur to Watch – Molly Jane Gravitt of Atlanta, GA

Nov 20 2013

by Cheri Leavy

We met this southern creative at The Southern C Summit in Nashville but have long admired (and purchased) her jewelry at Heery’s Boutique in Athens. We love learning more about her business and truly admire her drive.

Molly Jane Gravitt wears a lot of hats owning her own business, Molly Jane Designs. She is not only the designer of her line but also works hard on her sales and marketing. She sells not only in retail stores but also has a vibrant online shop.

You will love her jewelry and handbags as they are feminine with an edge. Super chic!

Get to know Molly better here as we asked her to share what inspires her…


Traveling, reading, journaling, architecture, history, cooking, and a plethera of interior design blogs.

#1 skill/attribute needed to be an entrepreneur:

Never give up. Each day is a learning process and I try and keep myself open to always learning new ways of helping my business succeed. Surround yourself with positive, supportive people. Listen more than you speak. Make goals for yourself every day, week, month. etc. Stay focused on your vision and prepare for the unexpected.

Role model:

My father, who’s guidance in my life has helped me understand that in order to be a strong leader, you must put others before yourself and that positive encouragement goes a long way.

Favorite Social Media:

Instagram, all the way. This amazing source of daily inspiration, through images, keeps me connected with my audience, potential buyers and good friends.
