Now that I'm back from the Chicago conferences and basically missing 3 or 4 days work opportunities (not meaning I didn't "work" in Chicago ha, but that was more networking - which is just as important as "work" for me), it's time for catch up. Balancing being a full-time college student and trying to further grow and expand T.WayCustoms certainly has its troubles, but I think this week won't be as difficult as the last few - I hope.
Last night I stayed up until...well...I guess I didn't go to bed until this morning, but then I woke up early this morning, so...I guess you could say I had a nap last night. But back to my regularly scheduled thought, last night I started work on a baby sneaker for Wes' new-born daughter, who is now just a couple months old. These things are freaking cute. Yeah, that's right: I'm a guy and said they're cute. They're supposed to kinda be a surprise/late birthday gift/early Christmas gift - so if you talk to "The Most Powerful Man in Sports," please don't spoil the surprise. After I finish these, which will probably have to be delayed until Wednesday (because today I've had classes all day and am about to head to Cornerstone University for my sister, Aubrey's conference playoffs in volleyball), then I've got another pair to sneak in (haha, that pun is definitely intended!) before the BIG project. I've got another pair to do for Rip Hamilton, so my goal is to get those done within the next week or two before the LeBron project really kicks off.
The latest on the LBJ project is: I've just e-mailed the proposals to some big corporate companies to join as sponsors (names TBA upon contractual agreements) and am continuing to look into the aspects of the budget, time schedules, travel, tour stops, promotions, etc., etc., etc. I'm definitely looking forward to just getting it underway and begin designing the sneaker - because I don't like handling the business as much as I do the actual art work. I should prolly just hire someone to run the day-to-day for T.WayCustoms, but I still enjoy having a hand in everything I do and put my name on. That's something I need to work on: not doing everything myself, because it certainly adds up very quickly.
I'll continue to move on, get good grades, design beautiful sneakers, and prepare to change the world if you continue to support me in doing so...agreed? Thank you very much for listening, and I look forward to our next discussion. *The numbers show you read these, but more discussions/comments are always appreciated, ha thanks! God bless & be easy!
