301 Projects – Running and Tennis

So the 1st part of the 3rd year is to create a business plan and a range plan. Its called 301 for short! After a few weeks we have finally worked out what we are going to do.

I will be creating a new Tennis brand and Samuel will be creating a new Running brand.

We have told a few people about our new idea to move away from football for 301. And they were all very surprised. However for us 301 is about setting ourselves a big challenge, putting our skills and passion into different sports and not going for the easy football option just because its the 3rd year.

We will still be making Football collections, but for 301, its all about Tennis and Running…..BRING IT ON!!!

We have a poster in our living room

It has a quote on it.

“The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses – behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.”

Its by Muhammad Ali, probably the best boxer ever. I don’t think we really appreciated it being on the wall, but I looked at it today and it suddenly just made sense. There will always be blood, sweat and tears in life, but you have to try and work through it to the best of your ability, day by day, week by week, month by month, year by year, if you can do this then there should be nothing stopping you from getting to the very top, achieving that goal and winning that fight!

New dye sub heat press machine!

For 2 years we have been pestering Peter to get us a dye sub heat press on a big scale so we can print our own football kits and sportswear. And last week it finally arrived! We had lots of fun (and upsets) with the last heat press machine but its time to step it up and take it things to the next level. We are hoping the new heat press brings some good luck and print perfection. Very excited!
