We had the good fortune of connecting with Jaden Gilbert and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jaden, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risks are what gets us to the next level in life. Whether that be in your business, schooling, or even just daily tasks. I love taking risks. It lets me challenge myself and learn in the process. I am who I am today because of taking risks. Sitting back and wondering what if or maybe if I did this isn’t really my style. I like to get out there and do what needs to be done or sometimes even do what most people wouldn’t just to see where it takes. I’ve learned new talents and seized great opportunities by taking risk. I feel taking risk is what separates the followers from the leaders.
Please tell us more about your work. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
I design customized clothing. I love bringing people’s vision to life on clothes. It is a great way to express yourself. Standing out and looking good is what most of us strive for, so why not create it? It gives me the opportunity to really tap into my creative side.
I got where I am today professionally due to dedication and my hunger for success. It definitely was not an easy road. I am still learning things as I go, but the journey has been very rewarding. I had to learn that things come in due time. Not everything can be rushed. Patience is key.
My brand is unique to me. It gives you that unfiltered and unapologetic expression.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I love Deep Ellum. It’s a great place to have drinks and good food. Taking in the downtown scenery is the best. Seeing the tall buildings and art within downtown is amazing.
If downtown isn’t really your scene Addison is another great area. They have a lot of tasty restaurants to choose from. There are also a lot of places to enjoy activities such as: bowling, hookah, shopping, and etc.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would love to shoutout FeMay Enterprise for their help and support in everything. I would especially love to thank my family and friends for their support as well.
