… I’m actually retired on disability. I am able to spend as much time as I want developing my store. Currently, I spend my day evaluating new fashion design programs and I believe I found one that I want to purchase next year for my store so that I can expand my clothing line and into jackets and other types of clothing and accessories. I manage my time by setting short term attainable goals for my business.
… Using only time-tested techniques we create handmade linen garments from linen dresses to linen pants and tunics, from skirts to coats and jackets, from linen aprons to tops and blouses, and linen home decorations like linen towels, napkins, tablecloths, bags, or curtains.
… Due to my original business, I am fortunate to have access to almost unlimited types of blanks and prints. I own a sublimation printer along with 9 heat press machines. I advertise same-day shipping because I have the blanks and I have the prints in stock so every order receive will take 12 seconds to print and all I need is to print a shipping label.
… Gorilla Savage means Head Up, Chest Out, Going 100%. Every day we want our customers to walk with their heads up and their chest out while going 100% in everything they do. We wanted to inspire the youth and fellow colleagues to believe in themselves as well as radiate energy for the people around them.
… Hello, My name is Rosauro but you can call me Sau, I would like to remain anonymous if that’s okay. I was just a normal guy working for an Electronic company operating machines. My wife used to work as a process worker but eventually left after she gave birth to our daughter which is also the reason why I started my business.
… I may have started this business on what some may consider a brief notion but I design and create new products knowing that each step I take may add some positivity back into the world and that’s exactly what we all need. That knowledge and the knowledge that the outcome is unknown until it’s completed is like opening a surprise!
… I think I enjoy being my own boss and knowing that business success is directly correlated to the amount of hard work I put in. At burger king, I’m trading time for money and don’t have a direct impact on the business as I do with my online store. The hardest thing about it is really when starting out there’s a lot of manual work that needs to be done as I don’t necessarily have all the systems in place.
… I enjoy most, that you can structure your day the way you want to. But it is equally hard that some people think, it means being totally free while not putting in as many hours. It takes a lot of self-discipline to organize and give your own business a structure and most of the time there are so many hours that go into it. While social media makes it all seem like a dream job.
… The main challenge is standing out amongst so many fast fashion brands, coupled with people’s misconceptions about how much work and effort goes into making clothing (particularly handmade) when they have become so accustomed to very low prices – which can usually only be achieved through unethical working practices and factory conditions.
… I have faced a few issues with the customers I must admit. As most of my items are customizable to fit all body types. Even if I have the size chart for them to be compared with but this does not seem to be cleared until now;) Another challenging aspect is shipping. We can’t say the exact date of the delivery time which is something I’m trying to improve.
