We had the good fortune of connecting with Robert D. Watts and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Robert D., what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Starting my own business started with expressing myself via writing; my vivid thoughts and feelings. My business aligns with purpose and passion to help and inspire others. We collect material things such as clothing and/or products by way of purpose. The positive message on each piece of clothing or product gives you a vivid thought to connect with. That thought gives you an instant connection to support subconsciously and collect in addition to your possession. It was that same connection that became conscious enough to create and birth Collect2Connect, which is branded on the logo design. We sell purpose, together we can collect2connect.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My art consists of sharing my words of wisdom based on life experiences or interactions. I’m more of an impulsive writer with many visions and I see them clear as day. I’m most proud about my relentless approach to life and speaking what I desire and require. Everything I’ve accomplished thus far, I once spoke about it and put a plan together which have come to fruition. It has never been easy and you must take risks to truly become successful. I’ve learned, to win, you must fearlessly lose first to be better prepared. If nothing else, I want the world to know you must be relentless with your ambitions and there’s no mystery with the results of quitting.

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?
For a weekend visit, I would take my friends to the Ponce City Market, including the Beltline Trail. There are so many tourists attractions in this area, including amazing food, drinks, games, and many other leisure activities. Atlanta has so much to offer but I would definitely start in this area surrounding Midtown. -Cheers

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would be remiss if I did not shoutout my mother, Mrs. Alfreda Spencer. My mother is special for so many reasons and I’m forever indebted because of her unconditional love and support. Her heart is extremely pure and that alone ignites my passion to inspire others in a positive manner. The lessons my mother instilled in me are priceless and I will forever apply them with intentional living. I would also like to take this time to shoutout my fraternity, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. I’m honored to be a member and have a brotherhood centered around love, philanthropy, and mentorship.
