How did you get Motivational Hustlers started?

“I wanted to do a clothing brand since I was a child. I like to motivate–I like to hustle. Pushing people to gain more positive energy and outlooks.”

What service(s) or product(s) do you offer/manufacture?

“Hoodies, long sleeves, short sleeves and for the summer we have swim trunks.”

What was your mission at the outset?

“Pushing people to gain more positive energy and outlooks.”

How does that motivate you?

“My brand is an extension of myself and I want to be reflected well. All the quotes that are on the back of the clothes come from me. I motivated my motivating people to achieve their goals, to keep pushing and pursuing and to not give up.”

How do you generate new ideas?

“I try to look at the demand, and the fill the need at hand (for example with swim trunks).”

To what do you attribute your success?

“The support of other people, marketing through the support of the staff and students. Made you become a better marketing and more confident over all.”

How do you intend to keep that success going on a long term scale?

“Obtaining a sellers permit, more product, more branding, reaching out further. To go to college study business in college. Keep pushing beyond the setbacks.”
