0 - Published April 29, 2016 by in Business, Development, Entrepreneurship, Inspiration, Leadership

“You’d be surprised about listening. Listening doesn’t cost anything. Listening is free.”  (Richard Branson – founder, Virgin Group) (Writer’s Note: A very happy birthday to my former intern, Brian Pollard. You may have gotten a first hand experience in new product development and marketing, but you really taught me a lot as a business founder/owner.) I’m […]

Nothing happens overnight.  Of the many products we offer, we’ve been always trying to “solve” the apparel side. The word “solve” is in quotations because any new product development, will always have their problems looking for any solutions, no matter the stage. In our case, we wanted to offer a higher-end of apparel that stood out a […]

Friday Food 4 Thought: It All Starts On Paper.

0 - Published April 15, 2016 by in Art, Business, Development, Inspiration

In college, I had an internship at a major magazine publication in NYC. While the internship was mostly “gopher” work, in the same room was the Design Director who would always have a sketch pad out, head down, doodling his design compositions. He hardly spoke in the interest to start office-room conversations, but you could tell he was […]

0 - Published January 29, 2016 by in Business, Development, Entrepreneurship, Inspiration, Lacrosse, Networking

See the recent Twitter exchange I had, yesterday, with one of my respected followers.  I’ll be honest, I think about this a lot.  But I’ve never pulled the trigger on Biz/Grad school.  Mainly, because: • Being in debt. • Not making $$. • Homework The last point homework is what I find bothersome.  It’s been 16 […]

The Making of ‘Patient. Proficient. Persistent-2’

0 - Published December 18, 2015 by in Art, Business, Development, Featured, Hard Work, Inspiration, Lacrosse, Old School

Last year we had a piece titled ‘Patient. Persistent. Proficient.’  It illustrated human hands stringing a head of a traditional wooden stick.  Stringing a stick is hard – very hard.  But what nobody knew was that the piece was part one, of a two part series.  Instead of the traditional graphite, pen & ink mediums used, I made […]

Ha! You all remember that movie line? It’s funny, looking back, how a random and casual meet-up over hot wings led to a great list of project collaborations with Streaker Sports. But we’re not streaking, rather keeping our clothes on and adding some new ones to the list. Not too long ago we released a […]

Harpoon Brewery–What If?

0 - Published October 21, 2015 by in Art, Business, Development, Entrepreneurship, Hard Work, Inspiration, Lacrosse, Leadership, Networking, Old School, Risk

(Writer’s Note: Let’s file this one under “what if?” In the crazy and adventurous world of entrepreneurship, there are a lot of “what ifs” involved. “What if” it does work?  “What if” it doesn’t? “What if” we don’t try?  The last kind of “what if” is the worst! In the summer of 2013 we had quite an […]
