Faisal, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I was 16 years old and I asked my father if I could purchase the new Jordan’s that had recently come out. He replied, “No son you can’t have it. Once you learn the value of money, then you will understand why.” He had never said I couldn’t have anything up until that moment, so I was shocked at his response.
What I didn’t know was my family was not doing too well financially and we simply couldn’t afford to splurge on sneakers.
