I am so overjoyed to have been able to sit down with Antonio Brown owner of men’s fashion brand LVL XIII. Our conversation was literally food for my soul, we discussed everything from walking in faith, making sure your actions align with the life you want to live and tapping into your POWER. With no formal schooling or contacts in the fashion industry, Antonio had the desire to start a fashion brand. When Antonio decided, that despite his circumstances, he was going to make his dream a reality. He started with a Google search and began to realize as he continued to make steps, new opportunities and people came into his life and the universe conspired in his favor. Through his ‘Journey’, Antonio has realized the power of walking by faith not by sight. Letting his energies guide him over logic, has led him to move from NYC to Atlanta where he found new opportunities for his business. Which helped him partner with music artist, Jason Derulo and the collection is now sold in Nordstrom and Bloomingdales. Antonio lives by the truth that we create the world we live in, we give it power and permission to exist and that we have the power within to do so. So of course, I wanted to know how can you tap into the power within.
- Sustainability is at the core of it all. If you can’t sustain yourself, then how can you sustain these outward expressions. Taking care of yourself is your first job.
- Faith: Relinquish all doubt and fear. You have to walk by faith, not by sight.
- Self-Reflection: You have to take a look outside yourself, from an unbiased perspective assess your choices and actions. Be honest, do they align with your purpose, dreams and aspirations?
- Realization to Actualization: Realize the changes that need to be made and actualize it into existence.
- And lastly, SURRENDER
