“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” - Socrates
Today I made one of the most difficult decisions in my life. I decided to close my baby, my dream, and the bulk of my life for the past 5+ years, Indstruktibl Clothing.
Indstruktibl has taught me more over the last 5 years than all my years of schooling and work combined and I can confidently say that I don’t regret a single minute of it. Despite the countless sleepless nights, ups and downs, successes and failures, it was the most rewarding experience of my life. It allowed me to experience things that most people could only dream about. I met amazing people along the way that developed into great friends and business partners. I worked with some of the most talented athletes, musicians, photographers, and models in the industry today. I saw a brand that I built change the lives of others in a powerful and positive way. I witnessed my creations for sale on the shelves of retail stores. I watched my logo proudly worn on ESPN. The company may be closing, but these memories will stay with me the rest of my life.
What started in the closet of a rundown, disheveled college dwelling, turned into something much more than I could have ever imagined. Throughout this incredible journey, I had the most amazing support system a person could possibly ask for. I would like to thank all my friends, fans, and especially my family for supporting me the whole way no matter how crazy it got. Without that support system, Indstruktibl would never have existed, and for that I am forever grateful.
The decision didn’t come without months of sleepless debate. But in the end, it was the best decision to further my entrepreneurial career. I know that I can build something bigger, stronger and more impactful than anything I’ve accomplished thus far. Later this year, I will be starting a new project to prove that to everyone. In addition, I will be focusing more effort on talent management and expanding my talent roster with my other company Bluprint Studios.
To all my supporters, thank you so much for your support and understanding. All I can say is that there are huge things in the works right now and this was the best decision for me. I will make you all proud again soon.
Indstruktibl will remain open until the remainder of our inventory is sold. We will be running a closeout sale on our site at www.indclothing.com to clear the inventory. Everything in the store will be 40% with promo code “CLOSING40”. All profits will go towards funding my new company.
