A journal and a dream. Lately, I’ve stopped thinking of dollar signs and focused on value. Stopped living on margins and started dreaming of passion. Stopped leveraging the take-back and began plotting the give. Success ultimately comes from a place of peace and joy — I’m finding mine. Big things coming 👊🏼
It’s so easy to send a text. But as the world has developed, some things have stayed the same. In business I’ve learned that there’s no way to get things done like getting on a call. It can be awkward, stressful, or feel like a waste of time. But if you want something finished, a text simply won’t cut it. #makethecall
Highs, lows, and everything in between. Happy to share one of the fastest ascents in the e-commerce world, @sockpapi and I had some help from @iamnickshackelford and @commonthreadcollective. Put up over $8M in about a month. A wild ride, and the company soaring to new heights now. Beyond proud of the team.
Huge thanks to @facebook for recognizing @gopupsocks as one of its biggest 2017 success stories, in between @wework and Tropicana. We’ve come a long way, and we’re just getting started!

10:55 PM on a Sunday. Office mostly empty. I’m at 34 hours straight. Todd too, minus a quick nap (pictured). Farrah closing out a 100-hour week. Kyle working all weekend.
Nothing comes easy. This business started in a closet this July and is now in a 28-person corner office in Atlanta. Instagrammers makes it look easy. It never is. Here’s your proof — if you want to build something great, this is what it takes. Grit. It’s all grit. You either want it more than the next breath or it will never come.
Grateful for a savage team. 🙏🏻
Insider, Miami Herald, ABC7, Charlotte Observer, just to name a few. @sockpapi and @thesleepiestmonkey out here with me building a company we’re proud of. What started as a little workshop side hustle has now become a major industrial factory. At long last, take a peek at @gopupsocks fam. 🐶💯
