Default my absentee-

Hey fella's.... sorry for the mysterious disapperance, as things have take off pretty well with the clothing company, and well, i dont have to say much bout the landscape company... recession what? busy busy. I've been able to check in, not very often, as Im learning how much work it is to simply run a forum... gotta give it up to my man steve... new site looks great man... im still trying to figure the site out. But things are going very well here, im hoping that the july holiday will slow some things up around here. Hope everyone is doing well, i hope to find more time to get back on here... and if you get a chance, check our forum out and lemme know what you think...

Well I am glad to hear that you are on top of all this. I think you are living the life. Being creative and expressing yourself that is the dream of many many people!

If you could do either one really big, would you do one over the other and why?

I am visiting the Friction forum often and find it entertaining. Keep up the good work Steve and James.

thanks B... slightly different than here, but we need both to stay sane...


and steve... i think that id would go in the direction of the clothing company... ive found one very important thing since starting to promote friction.... in 11 years, when I asked a buddy to give me a hand, they pretty much laughed. Now if i asked for help with Friction.... hah... got thirty people in a heartbeat...so for that fact, i would choose the clothing co.

Plus it would have more potential for mass appeal and a little "status"... lol... that sounds funny, but who wouldnt want their 15 mins of fame? lol

and to all the other guys reading this, check out the forum.... cause we have friction girls!!!!!

Have you thought of ways you can take the clothing line to the next level? Any new outrageous marketing ideas or business plans?

well first off... a unimog will turn heads... no matter what.. but imagine that thing painted red or white with a black canvas back with Friction written all over it... I found a few online... really low miles and pretty affordable... Im trying to do all this out of pocket, so all these things take time... got over $10,000 invested already, so wifey wants me to chill for a month or two... I will get one and def post some pics... great thing is we will work it so we can advertise the landscape company in the spring months... should be pretty neat.

James,

Here is an article that might interest you on another clothing company that is using mma to promote it's clothing.

Affliction looks to transfer success of clothing division into fight game - Tom Atencio has helped build Affliction Clothing literally on the back of some of the best-known names in sports and entertainment. Now the Affliction vice-president is looking to use all his connections in building the California-based company's fledgling fight promotion business.

The Affliction celebrity crew includes the likes of musicians Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth, Korn and Cradle of Filth, baseball's Brad Penny and Ryan Braun, surfers Sunny Garcia and Charlie Carroll, basketball's Shawn Marion, football's Junior Seau and hockey's Ray Emery and Derek Boogaard. Among others.


Maybe you will find it helpful and it might be able to give you new ideas.
