How much time do we spend doing something for a living that feels unsatisfying? Most of us have a job that we feel will lead nowhere. A love hate relationship that beats us down, but yet.. We keep going back. Either way, we (hopefully) take great pride in what we do. Whether we are aware of it or not, our job is usually the very center of our very existence. Are you where you want to be? What do you accomplish in one day? Was it like any of these images? Let me explain what fulfillment means to me. Welcome to King Craig James.
Many years ago. I took the leap of faith, to create a brand that makes music, video, and custom merchandise. In some aspects, it’s really paid off. In others, it’s really paid out. Becoming the next “Jeff Bezos”, “Elon Musk”, or “Steve Jobs” is no easy task. The road to innovation is a dark one, and there are no turn by turn directions. My only advice is that you must be persistent, set achievable goals, and keep your eyes on the prize.
As an innovator, I feel like I am certainly working for the right companies. Mine, and Amazon. However, perhaps I am in the wrong position at times. My time at a “fulfillment center” has taught me (and hopefully you) as well how fulfilling the King Craig James brand truly is. While it’s true that many companies offer “custom” hats, shoes, water bottles, and other things. Very few are capable of what King Craig James truly brings to the table. I want to explain what true fulfillment really feels like. For very few, take the risks necessary to achieve it.
I can’t count how many times that I have picked, packed, or shipped a product that I have literally designed, recorded, or printed in the past. Often times I forget that someone out there will actually buy something that I could click a button, or upload into a store to make myself. I feel like I lose a lot of opportunity by NOT listing things I have made, or use every day for sale on my brand’s website. Perhaps it’s something I should consider? Maybe becoming an amazon seller? Hmm…
I don’t know many (if any) companies as prosperous, or powerful as my own brand, or furthermore the one I currently work for 9-5. Perhaps it’s time for me and “big brother” Amazon to join forces? The possibility is something I have been envisioning for a while now,. As you can tell. I am in the early stages of doing so from an advertising perspective. I am interested in all things possible.
The most fulfilling thing in the universe is knowing my brand can produce, create, and make many of the things that other people are out there buying on a regular basis. From custom phone cases, to coaster sets, items supporting your cause, or just things you cant find anywhere else. The impact I could have on the world is tremendous to think about. That’s exactly what’s on my mind right now. That’s what I call… true fulfillment.
