Besides learning whiskey sour is my favorite drink, the boys and I go shopping. Fashion vlog coming soon.
Carlemile Chronicles Vlog: Starting a business is hard. Especially when you try to do it without any mentors. You got to do a lot of heavy lifting. If what you're selling is new, you're starting from scratch. Everyone wants to be an #entrepreneur. Now all of the sudden, we're all screaming #entrepreneurship (I mean Im from the hood where everyone idolized hustlers). Im all for everyone wanting to ow their own business. Just ask yourself, are you ready for the long days and nights? Writing and reading surveys to get to know your customers? Staying up til the middle of the night to manufacture products? That's what @kingreggievcr and I finding ourselves doing time after time with @naturalgiftsnyc.
Carlemile Chronicles Vlog. Last year around this time we were rebranding our beverage brand @naturalgiftsnyc while testing new recipes, seeking investors and seeing what flavors people enjoyed better, I just started developing the Mackin with Miles Radio Show and repurposing Carlemile.com as a lifestyle, entertainment and business blog instead of just a portofilo/reel of my video productions (http://milesvfilms.com serves that purpose). Lot of long nights editing with @jordy_jor, long nights cold pressing fruits with @kingreggievcr and a lot of un edited footage waiting to be seen on Carlemile.com, lol. Stay tuned.
Last Year around this time I was still taking the feast class. Because I never went to #MargheritaPizza, @audioa_hof and @cest_vie insisted that we went so I can become a "true new yorker". After I tried to spend some time with my family cause the next day we was back at the grind again. As we searched for suppliers for @naturalgiftsnyc, we decided to see other similar #businesses that worked in our market. In #Williamsburg there's a place called Juicery Kitchen. They have a lot of products! Wasn't prepared but it was a good experience. As an #entrepreneur, don't be afraid to shop at businesses similar to yours while you start up. Its the best way to learn.
In this Carlemile Chronicle Vlog, we go from recording the punk rock group Red arkade live performance, editing videos, heading to class and still making time for the family BBQ. Full vlogs coming soon.
