The process of designing shirts has been so largely rewarding. I realize now that more work can be done to further my vision.
When I first came up with the concept it came from a desire to start something that would contribute back to the world in some form of social good. The mindset hasn't changed but the process will need some fine tuning while I restructure.
Noticing that my shirts had never even been advertised past my family, friends, and from time to time the followers of this site. Don't get me wrong for me this was never about monetary gain it was simply another outlet of self expression (on that end it has already been immensely successful!)
I'll be honest I haven't sold much shirts other than those sold to people I have connected with personally (which is also so rewarding!), however I would like to return to the core focus I had for all of this.
So back in June I took the apparel section a step back. I realized some things needed to be done if I was going to make this happen
1.A website strictly dedicated to the apparel line
2. Advertise them not just to family & friends but to everyone both near and far.
3. Direct control of what I'm creating. I wanted to leave my personal imprint on the shirts. Rather then just being printed by a third party and have them handle everything plus finances & packaging.
All of these things have lead me here back to square one. I have learned a few lessons along the way. I will take that wisdom & push forward into the unknown world of entrepreneurship.
When I began this journey I didn't know how I would even get a shirt made. I didn't know I was capable of making designs people wanted to invest in. Now with the wisdom I have gained I will try this again more intently & with even more passion the second go around.
As this process unfolds I will be documenting it here on the site. The Highs, the lows, and everything in between. If at minimum it will be a fun thing to document.
To those who have supported me, will support me, and those that don't even know me but will discover me in the future.....HUGE THANKS!!!
PS: I'll admit I've cheated a little I've been working on the site all summer. I'll let you in on a little secret the brand has been renamed, the logo redone....stay tuned !!!
