Cee Los Willow Opens New Fabricated Lifestyles Concept Store in New Jersey

Published

on

Cee Los Willow is the CEO & Creative Director of Fabricated Lifestyles, a new concept store located in New Jersey. After the success of his first in Puerto Rico, he has decided to expand locations, opening a second shop in West New York. He is also a clothing designer and entrepreneur known for taking on the streets of Calle Loiza in Puerto Rico with his clothing brand all created with a touch of style and swagger. We had the chance to interview Cee Los on his journey so far…

How did you start your creative endeavor?

I was always creative to a certain point in my teens growing up but unfortunately the neighborhood I was in didn’t respond to creativity as I thought it would, so I learned how to hustle the street business from having nothing. I restarted my creativity with the upcoming generation where creativity is more openly accepted. This reignited my creativity and I mixed the hustle knowledge with my artistic sense and capabilities . 

When did you decide to take it to the next level?

In 2013 I had realized I was working at a dead end job for over eight years. Even though there was a sense of progress at this job, I knew I needed to build a brand that will give me longevity and will live on long after I pass away. I was sitting in front of my TV screen eating cereal when I realized this is not what I want to do with myself. I’m a student of successful people. I like to believe we are all the same and we are able to reach amazing heights if we change our mindset.

What was your first creative project?

I started Fabricated Lifestyles Photography in 2013. This then led me to creating graphics and eventually a clothing line. Due to low return on marginal profits from clothing, knowing this, I wasn’t able to pay rent for a location strictly selling clothing, so I transformed it into a vape shop that also sells clothes. My first store is located in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I opened the first shop in Puerto Rico because I saw the potential of Calle Loiza, the current street our store is on. I also saw the trend of fashion and art in the area which I think will also influence me in the future.

What does the future hold for you?

Due to the success of our first location, I have decided open a second location in my hometown in West New York, New Jersey, that store will be opening soon. I am excited to continue developing my brand to being a global product. From my experience of traveling I am very receptive of the creativity and culture of the local environment, and from that I want to be a global brand. I want to build to my product to adapt to the local environment.

How Naysha Rivera Created THATZAWRAPP

Published

on

Naysha Rivera is a creative director, CEO and multifaceted artist known for her media production company called THATZAWRAPP. Since 2018 we have personally witnessed the growth and expansion of her talents in the industry and now she is taking her skills to the next level with her creative drive and passion for the arts. We had the chance to interview Naysha on what’s driven her so far…

How did you start your creative journey?

Ever since I was little I always knew I had a passion for art. I loved how free you can be with art and that there is no limit, literally anything and everything can be art. I actually thought I was going to be a chef up until highschool. I loved how I was able to make the food taste good but look pretty. I would always take my time when it came to plating. However it got to the point though where work was just very stressful and gave me little time to do any of my own projects. I always dabbled in photography and making videos when I was young and kept it as a hobby so when the chef thing flopped, I picked back up and started to take it a bit more seriously. Then I began to actually get recognition for my work and started to get invited to do events, shoots etc. I took the leap of faith and started freelancing my own work. It’s been history ever since. 

When did you start to take it to the next level?

After I made an official website for my work and started to heavily promote myself in my hometown is when I started to notice how serious I was about this change. People started to come up to me more and ask about my work. I began to start taking bookings and events from there. Word of mouth definitely helped me gain some exposure as well; I have amazing friends and family who supported me through the way. 


What is your cause?

I grew up with a teenage single mother and being the oldest, I grew up a little faster than most kids. My mother inspired me to be a boss, even when I was young I knew she was doing the best she could and tried to hide that we were less fortunate. With that being said sometimes I just simply did not have the funds to do certain things or programs in the art field, and sometimes that would really hurt my spirit. With my art I want to give people a creative lane, be involved in something no matter what background or financial situation. I actually encourage people who don’t have a “cookie cutter” childhood to share and collaborate. 

What is your mission?

My mission as a person is to make sure my business blows up and that me and my family are straight. Eventually I am going to buy property and create a studio for my business. Within this building I will house a space for other creatives and artists to have a spot to link up creatively and make magic. Think of it as a warehouse for productions. With that foundation, I will create events and pop up shops to create a program for kids in less fortunate areas to be involved with. I would have loved if someone did that for me if I was young, so I’m trying to be that person for someone else now. 

Have you accomplished any goals?

I always push myself to do and be better. I started up a business on my own, THATZAWRAPP, and have maintained a consistent flow. I moved out to start a new beginning and I’m constantly growing and networking so I would say that I am accomplishing goals everyday. 

What projects are you working on right now?

Sheesh, what am I not working on is the question? Of course I’m always doing my shoots and creating visuals. I don’t want to say too much but as of right now one of the few things currently being worked on is some new music. I will be dropping a few singles and then eventually planning to work on my E.P. wich will probably come out next year because I want to take my time with it and really show you guys something dope. I’m also working on some merch right now so be on the lookout for some clothing and accessories etc.

What does the future hold for you?

That’s a good question that I ask myself every night before I go to sleep. Who knows because life is crazy but I know I’ll be okay. It may sound cheesy, but something inside me always reminds me that I’ll be okay, successful and I will be able to give my mother the world in which I promised her.

 Naysha is a perfect example of no matter what diversity you face you can come out strong. We would like to thank Naysha for answering our interview questions and we look forward to seeing more of your work in the near future.

Jeff The Entrepreneur is Changing Lives Financially

Published

on

Jeff “The Entrepreneur” Cunningham is a serial entrepreneur and business coach, teaching people how to make more money. Inspiring others along the way, Jeff has amassed a following of over 10,000 followers on his social media platforms. Jeff creates wealth for him and his students by teaching them lucrative ways of multiplying your money. We had the opportunity to ask Jeff a few questions…


How did you start your entrepreneurial journey?
Truth be told – I have always been an entrepreneur.  Lemonade stand at 12, having my brothers and sisters advertise to traffic and figuring out what more products I could sell from my stand.  I didn’t even totally get the grasp of money back then. I believe anyone – but mostly entrepreneurs love to create and prove people wrong.  Being a teacher at behavioral middle school, as other teachers complained about no lesson plans and a teacher I had a crush on said I wasn’t creative enough – this inspired and motivated me to build my own lesson plans – and teach money management and things that are my passion to change the education system one day. I also became a lifeguard because that girl scoffed at me when I raised my hand to try, became a quarterback when was told I couldn’t, and started teaching when told I would be a better student support.

When did you decide to take it to the next level?
After my brother Jay passed. We wrote down a dream to build a Kokomo Jays, coffee shop music studio – two days after I went to wake him up and that moment changed my life. I was selected to Speak Up about, dreams, belief and action on Amazon Prime Season 2 of Speak Up. Before all of this….I was a shell of the man I am today….thanks to my Dad showing me a video of Grant Cardone – I prayed to God not care if I woke up and then searched ‘Grant Cardone Depression’ – that video changed my life. My goal is 77 million, and then open KokomoJays.com worldwide. Costa Rica for sure – I know some good people there now. 

What is your cause?
To inspire others always.  Through their pain they can find purpose.  I have done this through my new Coaching Business – Changing Lives (Changinglivescoach.com). This is something I will never stop as I feel I make a direct impact and help people make money now. And now Changing Lives Financial will be known for helping 20 million families become Financially Free.  It’s a business I have built with my younger brother –  check out ChangingLivesFinancial.com

What is your mission?
To show how you can do more with money to change the world.  I will build many businesses. I am an entrepreneur, that is what we do.  Look at the definition.  Focus is everything.  I focus all on one, until systems are in place and then move to the next.  This is what I coach people. – my long term goal will also be part of changing the education system – reduce the evil of human trafficking – and solve any black and white problems that have been over looked. Met with some Poser Players in Texas, you will see some big things in the plans; oh and  If I have to run for president I will – but it doesn’t pay enough at the moment.

Have you accomplished any goals?

Daily targets lead to goals.  Speak out, write down, and take action. Became a real estate investor with cash flow and hired property management – own my equity in my own software with Business partner in London, which helps me have the dream of building the biggest lead gen software one day. Hit 1k subs on my YouTube Channel – now a mirco influencer – got several paid Brand Deals – with my YouTube and Instagram (JeffTheEntrepreneur). – the one I am excited about the most is a coffee brand called Kokomo Jays…so my following who likes coffee can taste the dream – and find the energy I have through this special roast.

What does the future hold for you?
Owning a 37 unit in florida and 128 in Texas, possibly moving to Texas to continue business there.  Interviewing top top guests on my Make More Money Podcast – Tim Tebow, Connor McGregor, Mark Cuban, Elon Musk –  will have Dana White on this fall. He is a busy man.  Will also be featuring some amazing power-players who will inspire anyone to chase the American dream. More brand deals for my YouTube channel and Instagram – hiring on Coaches to be certified under the Changing Lives name – growing and hiring people who are entrepreneurial for Changing Lives Financial for my brothers business. Then when I help 77 million people – and receive over 77 Million – will start building Kokomo Jays (KokomoJays.com)  in honor of my brother’s dream.  I speak in depth on the Amazon Prime show Speak Up Season 2 – under My Dreams Keep Me Awake (MyDreamsKeepMeAwake.com – Merch Store)
