We had the good fortune of connecting with Jeremy Sygh and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jeremy, what role has risk played in your life or career?
When I think about risk, I analyze all of the pro and cons associated with that risk before making a final decision on it. However there are times where I just leap and hope for the best. That’s mainly because that anything beats a zero and if I don’t take the risk, I will never learn from it or benefit from it. In my life and in my career, risk has a deciding role for me. Case in such when I decided to leave my travel job to be home more. Well the occupational role that I chose started off fine but in the end, it winded up not being such a good decision hence taking a leap and hoping for best. Since I learned from that risk taking experience, I decided the best risk for me to take to maintain the lifestyle I have created for myself was to return to my travel job and do the best I can to continue to market my brand as well as maintain my household.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I got to where I am professionally really by just staying focused on what is important to me and that’s building a sustainable business that I am able to pass down from generation to generation. Thus far it definitely hasn’t been an easy road to navigate but that the greatest challenge because if it was easy, everyone would be doing it. However there are challenges that I had to overcome such as time management between working my 9-5, being a parent, a homeowner, and my business which of course came with lessons learned. The lessons I’ve learned was to remain calm, rome wasn’t built in a day, finish things as early as possible to buy yourself time to attend to other important matters or people, and try not to focus on the negatives that come with the territory. I want the world to know that for me it wasn’t easy and I made a bunch of mistakes along the way in my personal life. I went from being separated from the military to homeless, I;ve had family issues, and even financial struggles yet I’m still here and I am still Flaulis. See the brand represents overcoming obstacles and being your best self, FEELING like your at your best with goals of getting better each day. Flaulis is simply about becoming the best version of yourself period and that’s when Immaculate Meets Extravagant because once you achieve the best version of yourself, you’re capable of doing anything and my brand will show that along with confidence that one has developed for themselves. It makes you feel like you’re in control and you know who you are.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I don’t know because I’m a homebody. I spend more time working on my brand than getting out but in such case, I would pretty much take them to the beach, some mom and pop restaurants especially the taco trucks; good god almighty, the chicken tacos. And I would take them to the Hollywood Walk of Fame just because as well as Rodeo Dr where all the high end fashion stores are. But I suppose it would be up to them where they’d like to visit. I’m a homebody so I get excited from creating and building.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to dedicate this shoutout to my family, my friends who have supported me and Gary Vaynerchuk. I don’t know if anyone has heard of him but he is my silent mentor. I always watch his IG stories and get his tweets so he has taught me to not worry about the intangibles of being a business owner but to focus on the journey. And it has been a lot less stressful since adopting that mantra.
