Today we’d like to introduce you to Jaron Collins.
Hi Jaron, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
Well, I’m originally from Omaha, Neb with roots in Kansas City, MO. With all the opportunity I seen thriving from close friends and family I made the decision to take a leap of faith as we say. Coming from a poverty and middle-class Standpoint.
I’ve always been creative growing up as a kid such as drawing, art, fashion also being ahead of my time with technology.
My uncle had a computer in his room. I would go see how it worked. The thirst for knowledge was overwhelming. Just by me exploring lead me to different files such as paint and art sketching etc…
So I would incorporate fashion from my drawings on paper to computer. With fashion leading the culture in the mid-90s, I wanted to have all the latest.
But when you’re the oldest of two younger siblings and your mom is a single mother of three boys, it’s hard to accommodate those needs. So I told my self instead of getting the latest, I would design my own brand someday. After years of deciding and creating many different logos and just learning the steps. I realized a brand has to have a bigger picture not just clothes. My goal was to acknowledge Leaders of life.
So many that do not get their trophies or roses on a day to day basis. So I created League which also is an acronym.
Our motto “Leaders deserve to be Comfortable.”
Being a Leader in all aspects of life like home, work, family, friends, school your community and other communities.
We all have Leadership Quality’s in us.
If I can leave with this one massage. Is that anything is possible and as a young black entrepreneur, dreams do come true keep working keep fighting and keep being a Leader.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Any transition comes with pressure. I have most definitely went through ups and downs even quitting at one point. The key is to let everything come naturally. Don’t force it and do your research trust the journey and process and focus on your strengths. I went through almost 50 different designs before finalizing. Trust your talent and believe in yourself.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
My ability to be creative and see the new ideas and designs come to life.
My most proud moment is having a YouTuber actually where my Clothes during a live platform with (all def digital) which is run buy hip-hop’s own Russel Simmons who brought you groups such as Run Dmc and Def jam record label.
I believed I would reach high expectations with League and that came true. It’s so exciting to see something you just brought to life in your mind actually live on a big platform great moment and more to come.
What was your favorite childhood memory?
My community growing up in Omaha, Neb on 65th street. We did everything sports swimming riding bikes and just enjoying life as kids too many memories in that place, I could speak of. That neighborhood was made for kids to be kids taught us life and how to come together no matter what.
