Hi! I’m Joselyn.
And I’m on a mission to inspire, encourage, and teach women like you to design their own versions of success.
I’m a sassy, nerdy, first-generation Dominican-American entrepreneur based in NYC (originally from Washington Heights, baby!), and I’m here to equip modern women with the mindset shifts and the systems they need to thrive in life and business in this noisy, messy, distraction-filled world.
From the time I was little, I knew I wanted to be an actress, a singer, and a person who helps people.
I’ve always been obsessed with creativity and freedom.
But there’s one big event that shaped my entire life: my dad was murdered when I was 9 years old, and his killer fled the country. I’ve always had this strong desire to succeed and overcome any obstacles that came my way, but obviously, losing my dad stuck with me.
In 2000, I graduated from NYU with a degree in Political Science and Latin American Studies. By 2005, I was recording albums, going on auditions, and acting in commercials. Still, I felt an intense drive to find justice for my father.
After spending 25 years waiting for “someone” to do something — including turning to police and media for help and getting nowhere — I decided to take it upon myself to get justice for my dad. “I’m just gonna freakin’ do it,” I decided.
So I did — I tracked down the man who killed my father, and in 2014, he was finally arrested. I know I have my love for personal development to thank, because without it, I would never have been brave or confident enough to embark on that journey.
Meanwhile, I’d built the career I wanted and I was happy with my accomplishments. I recorded a Latin pop album, appeared in commercials and print ads for brands like HBO and McDonalds, worked as a stand-in for A-list actresses, and was quickly eligible to enroll in SAG-AFTRA (a big deal in the performing arts world!). I was even celebrated as one of Cosmopolitan Magazine’s Fun Fearless Females for the work I did surrounding my dad’s case.
But still, I kept feeling like life was passing me by.
Working as an actor meant I was always waiting for the next casting call or audition. I felt like I never had any real control over my life or my work. Then, while on-set, I’d usually be working 12 – 14 hours a day, meaning I never had enough time to work on the goals that meant the most to me.
I knew I was destined for more.
I thought back to my dad and how the story of my quest for justice made a difference — and made headlines around the world. I hadn’t had to wait for anyone. So why was I still spending my life waiting for those “someones” and “somethings”?
I founded Joselyn Martinez Inc. because I know firsthand what it feels like to think that other people hold the power — that we can’t create the lives we envision for ourselves because “something” is stopping us from reaching our full potential.
We all have setbacks. Society is full of dysfunctional systems. Still, each of us has the power to create a life — and a business — we love.
Is rising above it all even possible? Yes — I’m living proof that it absolutely is. You just need the right mindset and tools to get there.
The only “someone” or “something” that holds the power is you.
How can we work together?

Fun Facts About Me
Preserving my dad’s legacy and memory is important to me.

I attended an all-girls high school. That’s part of how I became so passionate about inspiring, encouraging, and teaching women how to navigate modern-day problems and create success on their own terms.
Music is in my blood — I love to sing (Mezzo-Soprano here), and I’ve loved it ever since I was a tiny chica.
I get my joie de vivre- my enjoyment for life, from my mom.
My office assistant, Joey the Cutie, is a super-smart orange cat with his own Instagram fandom. He’s trained to use a human toilet!
Speaking of joie de vivre, I’m in a long-term, passionate love affair with everything Paris.

Her education as an NYU Pre-Law student helped her research her Dad’s murder (which happened when she was only 9 years old). Through her unwavering desire and tenacity, she was able to locate the man who murdered her father and bring him to justice.
The story has been seen in Newsweek, marieclaire, NY Daily News, NY Post and New York Times, as well as on ABC’s Good Morning America, Telemundo, CNN with Poppy Harlow, Live with Piers Morgan, and on Univision: Aquí y Ahora, and celebrated by Cosmopolitan Magazine as a “Fun and Fearless Female!” She is currently working on a book detailing her experience. In 2020, Joselyn launched the Modern Woman Planner, a 90-day goal-setting tool, backed by supporters who covered publishing costs on an Indiegogo Campaign.
