My aunt and cousin also did hair on the side and as a child, I was so curious and watched all the time. Doing hair was a side job for me since high school. Once I got older and adulthood hit, hair was the one thing that saved me from the struggle. Being the oldest of 12 siblings, I didn’t have much help so I was more than blessed to have such a talent. Read more>>

I photographed the pieces in a styled room to show how I envisioned the art to be included in interiors. I think this approach sets me apart from other online artists.

I educated my self on how to create my designs and print my t-shirts instead of having to overpay at a local printing shop and not make any money back from sales.

Nate Trillo

I made movies and people knew me for being the “computer guy.” So when they found out I wanted to be a “rapper” I was faced with a little bit of doubt from my peers and the people closest to me, but music was what I really wanted to do and I wasn’t going to let anything stop me from achieving my goal. Sure enough, after a few sold-out shows, radio interviews, and blog placements, I was officially established as an artist and not just someone trying to do music. Read more>>

It is a blessing to be able to work with people who saw potential with my work.

I think the best part of it all. Read more>>

I love what I do and I love promoting award-winning online real estate education. Read more>>

I wanted something that when you read it you can see some parts of your life within the story. I want this fiction world I created to feel as real and authentic as possible, and honestly just to write a super dope story. What makes Bradley Thomas (Artist/Illustrator) and myself the proudest is the response we’ve gotten from people so far. Read more>>

I started #CompanyRules due to a culmination of painful experiences that served as my wake up call. Due to circumstances, I step into my personal power rather than giving other people that power or expecting them to “do the right thing.” Since taking steps in starting the blog, I have found healing along the way with each blog post I share. Read more>>

I thought I had made a terrible decision by leaving the shop I had been in for nine years. Turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I put a plan together in black and white, submitted to one of my celebrity clients who I had built a great friendship with. He agreed, then I opened Famous the barbershop. Two years later came Famous the Beauty Bar. I also have small stakes in other successful businesses. Read more>>

Our greatest challenge at the beginning was time management. Since we started this in our college years, we had to manage work and school, all while starting our small business. There were times when it just seemed easier to only focus on school but having each other to count on making it easier, and our passion kept us going. Read more>>
