Since then my brand transformed into a full service decorated apparel shop for other brands and organizations. In short, I make clothes and websites. I'm all about bootstrapping your way from the ground up and hacking your way to success. Money can help businesses grow, but nothing sets a firmer foundation than hard work, long hours, and hustle!
