NEW YORK, it’s been fun! Big thank you to @ubm_fashion for inviting me out and allowing myself to network and learn the industry in the early days of my company’s growth. It’s truly been a blessing and there is no doubt that I’ll be back. Looking forward to the space and sunshine of my hometown Dallas, Texas 😎🌞
Celebrating my brothers graduation from London Business School today. LBS consistently holds a top 5 MBA program in the world. I am so proud of my brother and all he continues to accomplish. The world is yours now brotha💪🏼
Great dinner and evening at Cliveden. Already planning my wedding haha Aston Martin DB9 GT 007 Bond edition was pretty awesome. Only 150 cars ever made. Time flies...The last time I was here was about 15 years ago. “Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow is the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.” #rosegoldapparel#london 🇬🇧
I love when the odds are against me. Every step in this journey is met with more and more resistance...but very similar to weight lifting, this increased resistance causes more strength and creates new thresholds. I’m just learning and figuring everything out on my own, while answering to no one. Love seeing the perception of this color change among men. #rosegoldapparel#0 .000001%
Two years ago to this date was the first time I drew RoseGold Apparel’s logo on receipt paper while working at youfithealth clubs, when an hour of my life was valued at $8. If you swipe left, you’ll see the exact sketches and some other pictures of the creation process. Fast forward a couple years and RG has grown from 1 belt/loafer to now offering 16 products, worn in 6 countries, seen by over 1.1M people on YouTube, and been in GQ, ELLE, and Harper’s Bazaar magazines. Knowing nothing about the fashion industry, I’ve now switched multiple manufacturers, personally own 11 trademarks, and have been a guest of UBM fashion twice as of next month.
It is absolutely incredible, and only a gift from God to be on the journey I am today in my definition of success - health, wealth, and happiness. Fully trusting the Lord took me from an insecure, self centered, weak minded, LOST, and broken individual into the well rooted man I am today. Over the past half decade overcoming heart failure, broken back, and many more life threatening obstacles, I am now 100% confident in who I am, what I want, where I am going, and what is most important. I am still alive for a reason, so I will continue to explore my talents and maximize my potential.
I love luxury accessories no questions asked, but there is so much more to life, and so much more to me. I don’t share every aspect of myself on social media as I want only the people who truly care about me to know my depth. I prefer to be vulnerable with only a select few, since those relationships are what matter and the intimacy/ exclusivity is what makes them grow special. What a journey it has been so far, and what a journey it’ll continue to be.
Also, if anyone is lost and thinks the world doesn’t understand them, please reach out and I am happy to talk. It is hard, I know..but that is what society wants you to think! You are so much more powerful than anyone will give you credit; you just have to capitalize on your strengths, and find someone to do your weaknesses. “We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” -Plato
This was weeks before @rosegoldapparel last photo shoot. If you slide right you’ll notice a similar backdrop. I am quite used to being alone, and have realized that the more people you trust and the more people you rely on, only increases the opportunity for disappointment. I love just sitting and thinking. Envisioning the future and making it a reality is amazing to me. That’s my high. If I were to tell my plans and visions, most would roll their eyes and laugh just as my family and friends have. So now, I keep it all to myself and will just have to wait for my actions to explain. “Only a few care, the rest are just curious.” .
.Thanks for the dope shot by my good friend, teammate, and photographer @___spencer______ .
