Yo what’s up. I’m Elliott Connie! Welcome to today’s edition of Solutions Every Day. My daily video blog, where I talk about the things that are inspiring me and going around in my mind. And today I want to talk to you guys about a secret about me, something I’ve never said and a dream come true. So here’s the secret. Growing up I always wanted to be in business.
Never really thought that would be as a Psychotherapist. Never really thought there would be as a trainer and author or whatever. What I actually wanted to do was have my own clothing line. It was just kind of like a pipe dream as a kid, as a college kid back then there was a lot of like hip hop clothes that you really don’t ever see any more.
Most people familiar with something called FUBU. The founder of FUBU was guy named Daymond John, who was one of the sharks on Shark Tank. So a lot of people know about FUBU, but there was a ton of hip hop clothing brands back in the day. There’s something called Roc-A-Wear. Sean P Diddy Combs had something called Sean John. There was another one called Dada.
I mean, there was just a ton of them. And I just was like, man, I’d love to have my own clothing line. And I would draw like when I’m supposed to be studying in class, I would draw like different designs and clothes. So anyway, I fast forward life like 20 years and I become a Psychotherapist and I had to have a logo.
And if you go into my website, you’ll see the logo. And over time I didn’t love the logo and I have one of the most creative artists in the world that works for me, who does my graphics, does my art and she’s brilliant. And I challenged her to come up with a cool hip logo. So about six months ago, she did like, she drew this really amazing logo that she thought was more edgy and more hip and more kind of contemporary and fit for the times that were in and looked better online and all these things. And a couple of weeks ago, she started designing clothes inspired by my love of sweatshirts. You guys have noticed if you follow me, if you watch my videos, you’ll notice that I wear a ton of sweatshirts.
And anyway, so she started creating merch based upon this logo. And this past weekend, we made it available to people. You can go to my website, www.elliottconnie.com, find the merch drop down and you can buy things. So I got my first thing today. What do you guys think? What do you guys think of that? That is the new Elliott Connie logo. And the first piece of merch that I got, which is my hat. And I’m super excited.
This is like a dream come true for me. It makes me think of old or actually young Elliott Connie and the hopes and dreams that I had back then. And today I like unboxed my new hat and I think it’s super dope, man. Looks at that, and it’s got the little logo on the back of the hat too. So I love the work that Helen does. I love the design work that she did and we have t-shirts, hats, sweatshirts, sweat pants, mugs, stickers. We’ve got a whole bunch of super cool stuff on my website. So head on over to www.elliottconnie.com, check it out what we got.
And here’s the other cool thing. So it costs money to produce this. So after we cover the cost of each of the things that people order, all of the money that we generate, we’re going to donate each month to a different cause. And there’s a lot of stuff going on in the world right now. So understand that when you go to my website, a you purchase merch, you’re going to be contributing to people having better lives and recovering from difficult circumstances.
Like what’s going on in Louisiana. Anna says, can’t wait for the pajamas! pajamas coming soon I suspect. Don’t know if we can have a company that Anna co-owns without having pajamas. I mean, gosh, if sweatshirts are my thing, pajamas are hers. We’re going to have to work up to pajamas. But right now look at that! That’s super cool hat. You know, you want one, you know, come on. You want a hat, look at that! You want the EC hat? Look at that! Dope. Okay. Hey everybody thanks for watching. This really genuinely is a dream come true. I can’t believe that early today, I opened a box that had my logo on it and had my stuff. It’s really cool.
It’s really amazing to me. I can’t believe it. This hat is evidence that dreams do come true. Like when I was a kid, this is what I always wanted. And here I am 44 years old and it came true. So believe in your dreams and support this one here. Support the good work that we’re going to be doing here at Elliott Connie’s organization that I run with Anna. That we train people all over the world, but we also want to leave a larger, more significant impact. And there’s people short of resources right now. You guys see what’s going on in Louisiana, like crazy. It’s crazy. So help me make a difference, get some cool stuff and always believe in your dreams.
