Daily Inspiration: Meet Sunny Green

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sunny Green.

Hi Sunny, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
Wassup everybody I’m Anthony aka Sunny often referred to as Ai by my peers in Baltimore.

I’ve always wanted to design clothing since I was a kid. I remember sitting at the dining room table with a couple of my people sketching designs at the age of 10-11. I’ve always been into the Shooters, Mosions, and Samos wave but as time changed so did my taste in fashion.

Found myself reminiscing my sophomore year of college & told myself I would build a brand by the time I came back the next semester. The following semester we came back and hit the ground running at CAU and took a chance! We built a lot of strong relationships along the way.

Since then our pieces have been worn by Desi Banks, Jess Hilarious, Lil Kee, & Lil Baby just to name a few. Building a brand is always a work in progress, of course, we provide online shopping but we pride ourselves on the customer experience through our pop-up shops & in personal encounters.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Nothing worth having comes easy in life. As an entrepreneur, you’re gonna put in a lot of hours and a lot of work but the rewards are worth it.

The road has been fairly smooth for the most part I was able to establish a foundation, execute, and most importantly build a reliable team that understands and supports the overall vision. Another major key is understanding how each part of your business works. I try to be proactive rather than reactive in this and stay true to myself.

The hardest thing for me being an introvert might’ve been getting out of my comfort zone, approaching others selling my product initiating that kind of conversation. Fear can’t hold you back though you grow when you’re in the most uncomfortable positions and I’m always open to a challenge. Gotta do things differently to get different results.

Outside of that of course, I’ve had manufacturing issues, fallouts took some losses but that’s just a part of the game. At the end of the day, it’s never a loss though I’ve always looked at it as a learning lesson because I’ve learned something from each situation to help better myself or my business.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am a creator/designer/owner of WAGE APPAREL.

Our goal is to provide stylish, cozy garments for the masses at an affordable price. We are most proud of our growth started off hustling shirts on campus to delivering packs to superstars and participating in streetwear markets we still just scratching the surface.

We don’t really compare ourselves to others we stay in our lane and run our race it’s enough out here for everybody to win. Like I said before we take pride in customer service and customer interaction.

Not every day do you get a chance to interact with somebody that’s willing to chop it up and drop some free gems.

Alright so before we go can you talk to us a bit about how people can work with you, collaborate with you or support you?
