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.
That is it for this weeks VEW.07
