Once upon a time, we all had dreams, ideas, and hobbies that we didn’t know how to shape into a business. Last Monday, Nate1 and Shirley went to visit the The Boys & Girls Club South San Francisco Clubhouse to show a group of passionate  kids how to create a business out of their creative ideas. During his Small Creative Business class, Nate1 discusses the Do’s and Don’ts that he experienced while building up his own apparel company and lays out a business plan for creative beginners. The aim of this class is to give you valuable knowledge from a first-hand entrepreneur so that you can avoid the rookie mistakes and build a strong foundation to kick-off your creative business endeavor!  samll bizAfter talking about building his own hip hop kids & women’s business, New Skool, he gave advice to the kids about learning from his encounters and ended the class with a quick Letter Style draft.
