Rich Rocket Media
The birth of Rich Rocket Media came from a series of unfortunate events. Rich Rocket as he has artistically named himself, he prayed and asked the universe to allow him to use his gifts to provide for himself financially.
Just to create a start using what he already knew how to do, he made a flyer, that said "I make flyers" and posted it on social media. Within a few hours, he had a healthy amount of inquiries. From there on business has grown exponentially. He learned the hard lessons in those first months of growth. Not knowing proper business practices, allowing clients to take advantage of his time and talents was the instant downside. However, without those moments, he wouldn't have gained wisdom along with his true passion for fashion and design.
Creating "Vintage Thrivals" came from once again his need to allow creativity to influence his way of life. He has always wanted to wear clothes that speak to people. Clothes that expressively grabbed attention while subtly making a statement. Even though the majority of wholesalers do their best, he has found it is hard for them to achieve "the look." Vintage Thrivals means the idea of Vintage ideals and aesthetics Thriving in present fashion. I mean who doesn't want to dress like a Huxtable in 2017? The brand encompasses original pieces, vintage pieces, and distressed pieces.Something for everyone and every side of you!
Life has taught him so many lessons but the one that has been most prominent is that he was born to create. He spent years working for others who had no passion which was never fulfilling for him. Rocket stated, "When I put a brush to a garment, or put the finishing touches on a beautifully captured photo. The joy of being a full time "Artrepreneur" is only challenged by my need to create a comfortable, inviting and expressive space for my clientele. Making sure my clients are always satisfied, and wanting to return is most valuable."
