As expected the for those Samsung users, 12:01 was a miserable time, with so many dedicated fans attempting to download the the awaited Magna Carta Holy Grail album, Samsung servers could not handle the wave and crashed. If your not a Samsung device owner. You can have a listen hear. Enjoy and would love to hear your thoughts on the album. As always, if your going out, Go Out In Style.
It is always great to be a brand spotlight on a website, means some of what I am doing is working. Death By Design Apparel was featured on Indie Minded [formally known as Tee Gazette]. Was a great review and we are thankful for it, and hope for many more like it in the future as the brand builds and more variety of apparel becomes available.

“Good things come to those who wait”, in my opinion is the biggest lie which can be told to an entrepreneur. The truth is as an entrepreneur, “good things come to those who work their asses off and never give up”. When I started Death By Design Apparel, I was completely aware that the clothing industry is a tough one to get into, and getting exposure on a new brand is very difficult to do. The one thing I knew without a doubt, was the fact I needed to be willing to work hard and give it my all if my brand was going to succeed. Nothing was going to come easy and I wouldn’t want it that way. Granted I am not saying I have achieved a huge level of success with the brand by any means. However, I am further ahead than I initially anticipated. Sales have been higher than originally thought, and Death By Design Apparel as been featured on two fashion sites, Hide Your Arms, and Rare Hype Blog. With seeds planted for greater exposure, and talks of distribution in Australia. I am not writing this to to show off the progress made, rather to show the still long journey ahead, and to re-enforce the fact that none of what as happened to Death By Design Apparel, occurred by sitting on my hands and waiting for someone to find my brand. It as all happened with long sleepless nights, daily goals, email and networking and going out there and getting in front of my target audience.

Today I found myself having a conversation with an artist I have never met or spoken to before today, she goes by the name, LAINKWELL. Our conversation loosely revolved goals and how to execute them. I couldn’t help but remember a quote by Bill Withers, “…no one ever got to wonderful, without first being alright.” Simple yet very true, to become great you first go through different phases. Below is an interview of Ronnie Fieg, in this interview he speaks on how he has been able to build his brand, as well as executing ideas/goals. Hope this interview awakens creativity in you as it did me. And as always, if your going out, “Go Out In Style”
This quote really hit home to me. I am constantly thinking of ways to improve not only myself but the brand as well. Even as I type this I am envisioning what the next post should be? How can I captivate the readers attention, while still getting my point across? It is important to always strive for perfection, but with the understanding that there will be errors. The skill itself is learning not to repeat the same errors again, while continually developing. Which is what I aim to do as I develop this my brand. As always if your going out, “Go Out In Style”
