Nicky Diamonds is a good friend of mine and he'a helped me a lot in this business.
We are all pretty much friends that have brands and we have worked in the same industry for a long time.
I can say the guys like Nick, The Hundreds and a few more brands that are super big now deserve all the good stuff in life. They deserve everything because they been doing it for so long now.
If I had that money I probably would be showing some of my purchases too because it's a great feeling to treat yourself. But I'm not close to being there yet so I have more work to do till I get there.
When you guys get the opportunity to become successful I hope you also treat yourself to the fruits of your labor and enjoy every second of it. We all are trying to figure it out and it's no point in being negative about the next person. That's what will leave you behind if you worry about what the person has. Someone's always going to have more than but it's other things in life you have that we don't have that we envy.
Talk is real mega, it is a good feeling to have a little bread to blow on something you wouldn't have in the past. I just copped a pair of Ferragamo's for my wedding coming up, Ive been showing them off like Ive never had money before, haha! I am not really rich at all(although the term is extremely relative) but I have worked hard(school, work, life, etc.) to get where i am so I get proud when I can treat myself. Some people show shining as a way to boast and brag which in some cases is the case but in others it just shows what ANYBODY can pull off in America as long as your willing to sweat and not sitting around with your hands out!
