FGM: Its an honor to sit down with you all . Tell us a little about your brand and how you've come to this vastly successful peek in your career .
Answer: Nerdz Noir was created because I found a crazy amount of Blerd (Black Nerd) Communities and felt that Blerds need a brand that can offer a way to show their pride whether it’s a coffee mug or a dope hoodie.
FGM: Who are the clients/what are the projects that you most enjoy working on?
Answer: The Blerd community is who we market towards. We are open to anybody who can identify on any level of geek, nerd, and gamer.
FGM: How do you feel you make a difference in the world?
Answer: Shows like Big Bang Theory show how accepting the world is of nerds, geeks, and gamers Nerdz Noir’s purpose is to have a brand that we can unite behind to proudly show what we enjoy.
FGM: Tell us about a time when you showed determination to continue as an entrepreneur
Answer: Right now! “I’m fighting for my life!!” poor joke but seriously I have plenty of days with no transactions. Days where I get down but I remember what my father would tell me all the time, “Every day is not a payday.” I am learning to fall in love with the grind/process.
FGM: Give me the three best qualities of your brand
Answer: We are fun, full of conversation pieces, and love what we do!
FGM: Give me an example of when you worked irregular hours?
Answer: Every day is full of irregular hours clocking in at the 8-5 then spending time with my wife and kids often has me working from 8pm to 1 or 2 in the morning.
FGM: Being a entrepreneur is a 24/7 job, how did you get ready for that?
Answer: Since I was a kid I knew the power of hustling whether it was selling candy or converting videos to mp4’s for iPod videos. So I am always looking at random ideas that can lead to growth and profit. I have so many notepads, post it notes, and journals all over the place so I can write down ideas that pop up.
FGM: How did you acquire the ability to work under pressure to beat meet deadlines as a entrepreneur ?
Answer: Goal Setting Goal Setting Goal Setting! A friend of mine showed me a technique called power goals; basically you set goals for the mandatory things that need to get done in order for you to win the day!
FGM: What is your favorite inspirational point, place, to develop new brand developments?
Answer: Honestly I keep journals on me all the time because they come to me randomly. I’m inspired by the beauty of everything.
FGM: Which current public figure, are you inspired by or appreciate the most?
Answer: GaryVee he helped me to be fully ok with who I am and not give a crap about what people think of me.
How do you handle stress ?
Answer: Mainly talking it out with my wife, reading, video games, music, meditation, taking my shoes off and watering my grass.
FGM: What are the three qualities you feel an entrepreneur must have ?
Answer: Action Taker, knowledge seeker, and learn to embrace change
FGM: Where do you see your business in 10 years ?How do you plan to get there ?
Answer: Nerdz Noir will be a brand that sponsors artist, gamers, and content creators all over the world while also giving scholarships to those who wish to pursue a career in those fields. My plan to get there is to build this brand to the point of a household name(Social media and Influencers), then generate the revenue needed to accomplish these goals.
