If You’re Not Proud of a Product, Don’t Put it Out: In a Dr. Guccenstein Shirt, and Gucci Belt, and a Mandrick Paris Hat

Sometimes, as business owners, we invest in new projects. The project we are really focused on this year is Fashion Bomb TV.

Fashion Bomb TV has been around for quite some time, but 2018 is the year we are really focused on cranking on consistent content. I decided to start a new ‘show’ called Week in Review, where I recap the top 5-10 most talked about stories on FBD.

This past Friday, I got all gussied up in a Dr. Guccenstein shirt, white pants, and a Mandrick Paris hat. Latisha did my makeup and my homeboy Sharif did my hair. I was ready!

I decided to do things a bit differently this week. I rented a new space. I stood up. I tried out different angles. And even though we invested a lot of time and resources into doing it up, the final product just wasn’t at the same level or standard of our previous projects.

Because I didn’t pick the right space, the room looked more like a classroom vs. a studio. My voice echoed like crazy. It just wasn’t what I wanted. But instead of put out something I was not proud of, I decided to scrap it, learn my lessons from this go round, and do it right the next time.
As you try new things, you have to learn what works and what doesn’t work. We now know that the same space we used the past two times looks great on film. If it ain’t broke, don’t change it.

In business, you’re going to have to invest in yourself and your brand. You always want your investment to pay off, but sometimes it doesn’t pay off monetarily; you learn priceless lessons for the next time.

We will try again next week! Until then, be sure to like, subscribe, and turn on notifications at Youtube.com/fashionbombtv.
Love & Light,
