We had the good fortune of connecting with Jalen Everett and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jalen, what do you attribute your success to?
I feel the most important factor behind Humble Clothing Brand’s success is patience. When you first start out your brand isn’t going to blow over night for most people. It’s going to take some time for it to grow. There are a lot of components that you will need to learn over time. I feel that in society today social media is causing brand owners to rush their success. We look at how other brands are flourishing and try to keep up with them which is not what’s best for your brand. Stay patient, run your own race, and results will come.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Right now I’m balancing time between class, sports, and my brand as I go through college. It gets tough sometimes but you just have to know what you need to focus on at that time. Over the years I’ve learned how to be patient and not rush success. I’ve also learned that when you are consistent the results will come. Humble Clothing Brand was created to inspire everyone to find their balance between the highs and lows of life.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I’m really a homebody so I we wouldn’t do a whole lot. We could go fishing and enjoy nature one day. Next we could go to the bowling alley. I’m really like that in bowling. Depending on the weather we could also for a swim. For food it would just be based off of what were craving. I’m not a picky eater so I’m cool with just about anything.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
First, I would like to thank God for all of the opportunities that he has given me. Next, I would like to thank my parents. They helped shape me into the person I am today. They work hard to make sure I have everything I need to be successful. I also want to shout the rest of my family for supporting me every step of way. Lastly, I want to thank all of the Humble Family! Without you guys none of this would be possible.
