Last night the Pistons played the Spurs in preseason action in their annual Meijer Classic in downtown Grand Rapids. It was a bit of a special night for me because last year at this game was when I first actually introduced them to T.WayCustoms...and it amazed me looking back on the year how much things have changed during that time. Last night Chauncey noticed me sitting behind the bench during the game and points it out whereas last year I was just another face in the crowd. I feel the need to share this because it made me appreciate everything even that much more because I've put in the nonstop work and battled my way all year long, and last night was a time of reflection. This is just a living example of what you can make happen if you put your heart 100% into something and don't accept failure, especially when everyone else thinks you won't make it. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise.
Anyways, back to the regularly scheduled update: after the game was over I was able to catch up with Rip and Chauncey for a few minutes in the back, and updated them on about the Lebron project (which I'll update you on shortly as well!). You see, Chauncey is signed with Vitamin Water, and they are the main sponsor I'm looking at to work with for the Lebron project, so hopefully we'll be able to connect. Like I said up there, it's been a year, but yet Chauncey still hasn't decided what he wants for his (Adidas) sneakers, ha. I think I'ma have to put the heat on him soon though if he hasn't come up with something by the time I'm done with the Lebron and now this next guy's project too. On that note, Rip asked the next time I'll be on the east side of the state because he's got more sneakers he wants done-up. Sooo the Lebron's are supposed to be in this week from Nike, therefore I might make the trip east this weekend to pick all the sneakers up at once?...make sure to stay updated on everyyything cause things keep movin quickly, my friend. I'll update you on the Lebron project within the next day or two as well. But right now I've gotta prepare for this business idea-pitch competition on Thursday at Grand Valley State University. First things first!
God bless & be easy!
