This is one of the most dynamic and goal driven teams in the country.
This entire company came from a conversation at school. It must have been about eight in the morning, and I looked over at A'Shaun and some of our other friends faces as we sat in the cafeteria awaiting the traitorous "Go to Clas" bell. Everyone's face reeked of a burning desire to break free from what felt like prison. At that moment, I asked everyone what they always wanted to be. Everyone gave me an answer, but something about everyone's answer was the same... they were waiting. Some were waiting to graduate, others their degree, but I was tired of waiting. I begin to ask myself why is it that we think we have to wait in order to be successful? Martin Luther King was young, Malcom X was young... granted older than us, but still they were young, so what makes us think that we have to constantly wait for what we want in life? My dream of being a commercial airline pilot made me think, that when the conditions are right, a plane takes off. In addition, just like a plane, we would too. I was determined to make my dreams become a reality to be an example to so many that would always continue to wait for good things to happen to them. So I wrote a book to pay my way through flight school, but I struggled in giving it a title. Dream flight? Flying man? Then it hit me, “Takeoff.” After that, things would never be the same again. I created new opportunities and to help spread our message, partnering with LULU Press inc. and Spreadshirt Inc. Before I knew it, the Takeoff Superstore was born, with a new mission of Changing the World from Books to Clothes. I began looking for an elite team. People I could trust and depend on and that would hold me accountable and were hard workers. Well I did just that. This is the glorified, nice, sunshine version of our story, but it was also filled with pain.
