EP #10: Antonio Austin - Building a Clothing Brand from the Ground Up | 1111 Capital
In Episode 10, Founder Antonio Austin speaks on the creation of his clothing brand, "Niflow.Wolfin". Niflow is the mirror image of wolfin, symbolized as a wolf.  Wolf is a symbol of guardianship, ritual, loyalty, and spirit. Wolf has the ability to make quick and firm emotional attachments, and often need to trust their own instincts. Thus they teach us to do the same, to trust our hearts and minds, and have control over our own lives. Antonio Austin is leading this pack in 2021.   Antonio discusses his upbringing in Oakland from his father, a Panamanian native. He played professional basketball in Spain and Panama. Antonio wanted to start his business in his hometown and the brand is a culmination of his life, childhood, and reflective of the challenges that he had learned to overcome and adapt to any new environment.   Niflow.Wolfin is an experimental lifestyle brand. They focus on creating new clothing in real-time that sparks conversations and resonates with those who want to lead an innovative generation of creativity.

THINGS YOU CANNOT AFFORD WITH BAD CREDIT AND YOU NEED A COSIGNER (AD)
PRIORITIES come first. Let’s wake up. Lead by example and change the game of generational wealth. Improve your credit because if you have very bad credit or little to no credit history, your odds of getting approved for a car loan can be greatly improved with a co-signer, but why depend on someone else for a tangible item that you cannot afford and is a depreciating asset? Work on fixing bad habits, cut back on spending, save, and create budget plans/goals. The process starts with you. In most cases, no one wants to cosign for someone due to liability concerns.   Why is that? Cosigning can put someone at real financial risk and serious damage a relationship. Save the consequences and learn more information about credit. @1111vcfirm podcast covers credit in the episode 1 & 2.   We will have a credit specialist come on the podcast soon to wrap up the credit series. If you have any questions about credit or may be facing financial hardships due to past credit history, DM @1111vcfirm and we will we make sure to cover your question on general inquiries about credit and  #creditrepair on the next episode with a #creditspecialist.
