We had the good fortune of connecting with Rudy Ferguson Jr and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Rudy, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I wanted to starter something for my immediate family and for those to come. Instead of waiting for opportunities they will be born into one that’s successful.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Winin Apparel is brand that embodies streetwear & fitness apparel for those on the move for something more. I named it Winin simply because I was tired of losing and coming up short with the things I was doing. It’s not easy to run but it’s fun and keeps me going because there’s nothing like working for myself and betting on myself each and everyday day. I’ve learned that you should take risks and spend money to make more money. Don’t let friends and family deter you from what truly matters. I want the world to know that Winin Apparel is all about Winning in your own skin, not matter what it is you do in 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?
If my best friend wanted me to show them a good time, since I live in Atlanta there’s more than enough to do here. We’ll have to do brunch at Egg Harbor which I’ve come to like a lot since being here, swing by Lenox for a little weekend Drip to wear with Winin Apparel of course, enjoy a few bars and clubs til the night over.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d like to thank my parents for giving the will to overcome anything, Kj Smith from Sistas for her advice and mentorship, Elegance Davis for being an excellent friend and photographer who believes in my abilities. We all need friends around us like him. Lastly, I’d like to thank JR Bland, Issa Rae and Deon Taylor for there inspiration on my life as they continue show me how to get into the industry as a filmmaker and businessman.
