Back To Business

The deals are always out there. The hustle is always upon us. The gifts to share with others are priceless. Back to business, in my many attempts to grow a business I seem to start over. With the urge to do better with the next idea. These ideas come often and usually stay around until the fire dies. Why does this lack of commitment happen I often ask myself, but quickly forget as I am on to the next idea.

Back to business again. Foxtrail Clothing Company. Well that went 30 days and died. But the clothing concept was fire. I swear the ideas were on point. The jacket, joggers and hem tees were going to be a hit. Hold on, how much for the set? Well pricing was going to be $55 for a windbreaker jacket, $30 for the joggers and $15 for the hem tees. Foxtrail clothing was going to be a hit. (Orders bulk from China and sadly found out that large wasn’t a US large.) Instead of sticking with the idea, the passion died. Nothing became of Foxtrail.

Back to business though. Bracelets and Laces. The idea was simple; team the wrist with sneakers. Well I’m a sneakerhead and with a good sense of wrist fashion. Selling laces and adding gold tips. At that time Kanye West sneakers had the gold tips, and it was a hot item. So jumping on that fashionable trend I decided to market bracelets and laces, plus gold and black tips for the laces. Genius. The bracelets were a hit. People bought them and enjoyed that fashion. The laces never had a chance. Feeling that I needed both to consider this a good business, that fire burned out. Bracelets and Laces flamed out.

The ideas to start a business is always the passion. Having setbacks seems to always hit hard and moving on from those ideas instead of working it out is a problem. Once having the success of SoleShoecase and The Epic Sports Show fadeaway I have always in a way tried to get that same passion back. Reviewing sneakers, while podcasting about sports seems to meet my life long dreams. Forgetting how to much I need that hustle back I look to sit-down and write.

The Dyme was suppose to be a weekly podcast about all things basketball. Looking at the clock every Thursday 8pm I’d find myself at the gym or working overtime. The feeling of recording wasn’t driving me. I needed to find that passion again. Time to excuse myself from the excuses of why. Find a way to become the person I’ve always wanted to be.

Back to the business of writing, blogging or I like to say jotting. WordPress on my phone. I find a song and zone out too. Currently Silence – They. on heavy repeat until this post is done. I found my ave and I jot. Tackling ideas with words, writing and writing. The feeling to release. Sadly often these stay in my draft inbox, never shared. But now seems like a good time to put the pen and pad aside and publish Jottersave. Show the world a Mad Jotter. The many thoughts to share. Writers write. It’s random but it’s something you need to read.

The deals are always out there. The hustle is always upon us. The gifts to share with others are priceless. Back to business, in my many attempts to grow a business I seem to start over. Back to the business of sharing thoughts. The Mad Jotter Presents: Something you should read often…

Nike Tour

As I embark on my trip to Nike. I look back at the many sneakers I’ve collected. The countless lines I’ve stood in, just to but heartbroken when they say my size is gone. The hype of going to and seeing the new realizes. All this has brought me to this point in my life. The epic visit, the tour of the greatest company in the world. The sneakerheads Mecca.

Currently I am sitting in the LAX airport awaiting the departure of flight 2077 headed to Portland. Bored out my mind, I’ve listened to my own raps, I’ve snapped about being in LAX, but my excitement for Portland shines bright. The dream is coming true and I’m kind of freelancing this blog in hopes time will speed up. My mind is asking me a lot of questions like; what happens after the tour? What will I want to concur next? Will I cop the Nike Foamposites Pro, will I get a discount? Will my crush for Nike end in Beaverton, Oregon? Too many questions to be answered in this airport terminal. Right now all I can do is wait. Hold on I’m hungry wheres the food?

Wired to Write

We are in a middle of the writing and pausing phase. What does that mean. I have not a clue. the passive expressions the loud expressions. I have not a clue. All I know is that we are writing, more people are writing. And about what… Things that they enjoy to write about. In a era where new is cool, writing seems to be the new cool.

Blogs and twitter are the new cool. I mean they have been for a while now. Expressing yourself via twitter 140 character at a time is an art form. One must express something interesting or latch on to a trending topic. It’s the new AOL AIM chat room. While blogging much like WordPress and blogger are ways to say hey you readers I write and I write alot. The art of expressing yourself through words hasn’t changed much. Pen to paper, finger to keyboard, faster ways to do it, word to text, well thats cheating, but the points are clear. Writing is the new cool. With paid bloggers and twitteraholics popping up everywhere its quickly becoming the best way to reach people…

I’m so wired to write and write about what? O life, the study of human beings. Hold on wait for it, sports… The Bulls lead by Michael Jordan go for their 6th ring. The Laker trade that made them better than everybody. Team USA looking like in the next four years we might have a problem. Focus people, focus I’m talking basketball and a timeline enuses. But more so on how cool it is to write. You pick a topic and create facts or fiction. Well, facts are more so truth. Fiction create that! Get that. Own that. But we write more read less, right? So you telling me what I’m writing, you won’t read. Basically unless you are interested in what I have to say. If not I lost you at Wired to Write…

And with that said I lost my train of thought… I don’t write for a purpose, and it escapes when I think I know the purpose. That writers block feeling, or like I call it jotting on the ave. Aimless writing! We are wired to write and yet most people don’t read past the subject line, while some look for the thesis.

Cool isn’t it?! In this new era of cool it is…
