A good friend of mine Marc Elkman said he had a blessing for me and wanted to introduce me to an NFL player friend of his. He did just that and Davone Bess and Marlon Moore from the Miami Dolphins became my first Pro Athlete clients. After doing great business with them, they started to refer people. Then those referrals referred people, and so on. I got so busy that I had to limit my local sales and going to a lot of shows and stuff. I was very focused on my career. I opened a store called Sneaker Kings in east Boca Raton, to try to reach out and serve my heat to as many people as possible! The store was great for a year, but at the time I was going through a divorce and also fighting for custody of my baby daughter, which didn’t leave me much time to be there. It’s hard to depend on anyone to do business the exact A1 way that I like to do it, so I closed the store down sadly. I continued to hustle and grind the way I always did, and my following, clients, and sales continued to go up. I decided then to make a website, and find a way to give everybody access to my inventory and heat that I tend to hoard.
