One of my facebook friends posted a photo of a watch she purchased as a Christmas gift for her Dad. It was a beautiful timepiece and the packaging was just as beautiful and classy. Not only did she post the photo, she gave a little narrative about the watch. You see my friend was purposefully purchasing from black owned businesses that year. She was practicing Ujamaa, one of the 7 principles of Kwanzaa. Ujamaa is all about cooperative economics. It's about the art of building and maintaining our own stores, shops, and other businesses.
So, it turns out that the Founder and President of this awesome watch company is a young black man. I was geeked to say the least. I started researching this Dude online. His name is Randy Williams and he lives in Virginia. Let me tell you that the story behind the inception of his company is just as rich as the brand he has built and continues to cultivate.
Randy successfully funded his first large manufacturing run through a program called Kickstarter. When you get a chance, check out is website www.TalleyandTwine.com and check out the video in his successful Kickstarter campaign that raised over $29,000 Talley&Twine Kickstarter campaign .
Happy listening as Randy tells us a little bit about himself and his motivation for launching this wonderful brand.
