Today we’d like to introduce you to Jordan Poirier Whelan, also known as Jay Honest, CEO of Canadian fashion and entertainment brand HONESTGANG .
Hi Jordan, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
My life has been a journey, from homelessness, to losing my brother and fighting for my eldest son, nothing worth it comes easy in this life. What started as a hobby as a teen quickly turned into a full-fledged career once I had my first child, Jayden.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
I wish I could say it was, some of the biggest struggles of trying to attain success in my field would be the moments you start achieving success, as a lot of people whom once supported you as the underdog, no longer show support, and in most
cases, turn on you as you ”changed” or no longer show as much support due to being busy.
Realizing that other people do not value the same things you do, nor do they prioritize them the same way, clearly showing in their outcome and credibility, is extremely important. Learning to deal with losses and things in your everyday life without letting them affect you in real time while you need to remain focuses is one of the hardest things to do. Throw children in the mix and this all becomes increasingly difficult, especially when all you wanted to do was be a good dad.
We’ve been impressed with HONESTGANG thus far, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?

How do you think about happiness?
My happiness is driven by my successes, anything from seeing my wife and children smile, to hitting 20,000 on a song you didn’t promote or make a release plan for, to the 1 million highlights, or having one of your artists drop a song that just blows you away. Music drives me and my emotions, so when things around me are at peace, as am I.
