VEW.07

VEW.07 (very exciting week N˚7)

Welcome to this weeks very exciting week N˚7. We have some things to cover that is for sure. First and foremost the launch is getting closer and closer. With that I am getting super excited to be able to share a part of myself with the world. Being fortunate enough to able to chase my dreams. Last week I came down on myself a little bit, had a rough day. Received a text from my girlfriend that changed my attitude immediately. It read you should be grateful you are able to chase your dreams. This opened my eyes right away, and thought to myself, one of the reasons I am doing this is for others. That bad day slowly went away. I rarely have bad days because there is no reason for them.  As Bob Marley would say every little thing gonna be alright.

So on todays docket we have shipping, good news, and social media. Lets just jump right into this shit.

This week we had a conference call with one of the major postal services in north america and it went great. It is a win win for us because there are no fees, how could we say no. Now the next step is to get it integrated with all our shops and have it set up. We need it for the main store on wordpress, our etsy site, and amazon/ebay store. This is going to be tough getting all the orders organized and sent out in a timely manner. I have been following a couple brands who are ahead of me and been around for awhile and just getting their shipping down now. These brands are inspiration because I get to see their struggle, their wins, and they give advice. That advice is crucial, saves me time and money, and I feel more connected to the brand. The brand that stands out the most for me is The Legends League. This dewd post some of the most meaningful stuff. I highly recommend everyone check him out.

Do you know what I like? I like some great news, here we go. THE T-SHIRTS ARE FINALLY ALL FINISHED!!! I picked them up yesterday and now its time to package them all. I can finally upload the images to the site and get the ball rolling. The video will also be up this week on the website. Funny story about the video, I accidentally leaked it while uploading it to vimeo. Instantly had to contain the situation because my closest friends/supporters reblogged, shared and retweeted it as soon as it was uploaded. I felt like a mobil hq for some serious shit. I am very thankful to those who support me, truly respect the people in my life backing me.

Social media is my best friend and my worst enemy. I am just so confused over this youtube channel linked with google plus. Did not know what I was doing. The brand some how has two channels, and one is linked to a google+ page that I thought was for the brand but is for myself. So I have to make a page for the brand and link it to the channel that uses that domain name for the brand. Then I have to delete the other one but you can’t until you delete the google+ page for that account. Anyways I tried my hardest to understand it but could not do it myself. My partner and I will go over it tonight so I can fully understand that shit.

Can’t leave a post without posting up a few pictures.

The one below is a contest I entered for rip n dip. Sadly I did not win but gave me great insight on how to win future contests.

Now this image below is of the highway. One night after work I snuck up the son of a b***h and got some stellar photos. I didn’t want to alarm anyone so I was in hiding the whole time. So thankful for timed exposure because I do not have to hold the button down.

VEW.04

VEW.04 (very exciting week n˚4)

Time was definitely ticking this week. I don’t know where the time freak’n went. I remember when I was a kid time seemed infinite. I had nowhere to be and the day was long. Now it is the complete opposite.

Every Monday I try to get into a routine and stick to it. It is 11:34pm right now and I have already showered and brushed my teeth. I usually do not do that until around 1-2.  Today my mom told me I am passive aggressive. It really struct home with me after I looked it up. I have so much to do and on my mind that I don’t get anything done. Then I start to feel rushed an anxious. Then I get short tempered. So I think the best thing to do is to get into a healthy routine, one where I wake up early in order to get things done so it helps me throughout my day. If this clothing brand is ever going to succeed I feel this is an integral part.

Anyways…..

This week I did what I said I was going to do last week and that was get half of the OBF Naturally Selected t-shirts labels sewn on. My moms seamstress finished those a few days ago and now it is time to bring the other half to him. Now I can finally order the packaging and start packing the t-shirts up and make them look like a million bucks. Still trying to locate a supplier for brown butcher paper to wrap the t-shirts in. Each shirt will be wrapped in the butcher paper, tied with hemp string, and include a OBF Naturally Selected t-shirt as well as a sticker. However I would still like to include a thank you card that I will personally sign and number.

This week I also got to meet up with the photographer for the lookbook. His girlfriend and him came over to chat with my girlfriend and I. We have some great ideas and the lookbook should turn out to be one hell of a lookbook. Right now I say it competes with the godfathers in the industry, hoping one of the blogging sites picks it up. Would be real tight to see OBF NATURALLY SELECTED LOOKBOOK on the Hypebeast homepage while I do my daily trolling.

The last thing that happened was I found out my co-workers buddy work for a printshop. I gave him the specs and the prices I received, and he said he could have done that if not better. Knowing this a few months ago would have made things a lot easier. It would have been nice to travel to the printshop. This new relationship is good thou because now for the next series it will be more hands on. To me finding the right printshop is like finding a song to a DJ. We shall see how things turnout with these guys.
