we love you @diamonddoesit1 ...💛💛💛... thank you for walking out this dream with us... #chicagoskyyellow ...and ye thank you for the “holy spirit” sweatshirt... (sorry i had to chop the sleeves but u know how i do) might seem trendy to some, but the spirit and message transcend the platform. his purpose is beyond our intent. i love that you put “holy spirit” on sweatshirt. 🙏🏽 ...and by the way thank you sky the service was phenomenal ☺️
thank you to all who came out to the sneaker stash earlier today @ the @chicagosky arena... i even saw the og @bunb was around... humbled by the love today. Gods grace is a gift we can’t comprehend and sometimes is pretty hard to bear... the love you showed has lifted me “higher” 💛 ...and allowed me to be present enjoy this moment with you 🏁 @vincedesantiago 📷
thank you to @nikechicago and the nike lab chicago re-creation center for having me fall thru today... we touched on the power of uncompromised ideas and solutions and directing your design communication from instinct and emotion not trends or a capitalistic framework... also i go to speak to and see the work of some promising artists. thank you 💛 @vincedesantiago 📷
from 2000 to the year 2003 this was my block... i would work 9 to 5 as a stock-boy at @diesel on walton and rush in chicago, and from 6 to 10 i was in grad school at @loyolachicago school of business working on my mba... after school i’d hit the library at the law school on pearson til late nights/and even early mornings... retail was my part time hustle and the mba was gonna help support a full time career in the front office of a major league club since watching my dad manage the sox i knew i wasn’t good enough to play in the league... anyhow, fast forward to now, i can’t believe my part-time has became my full-time and baseball has just become that, a pastime... i don’t use any of the stats, finance, strategy, accounting, etc. that i learned in getting my masters today... but i do use the hustle it taught me... i graduated in 2004 from here @loyolachicago (finishing in LA at marymount)... i’m so proud of that time because i was so lost then. my dad managing in the big leagues and i barely made it into grad school not even really knowing why i was there... but i hit each day head on. i hit the stock room hard in the day, and the books at night... my sister @angelamanueldavis always says “the way you do one thing, is the way you do all things”... i didn’t know what i was learning in the stock room at the time or how key (essential) that time would be to God’s destiny and intention in my life. what is your intent? how are you approaching the small things? the very thing you are looking beyond, may be the gift/platform that one day holds you up... love you windy. thanks for the hustle.
