About This Class

This is the story about how I started an apparel line while working a 9 to 5 job. Grow Up Awesome started as a creative outlet and a way to design and print cool shirts for me and my family. Eight years later I sell at about twenty markets a year and my side project accounts for about 30% of my yearly income. 

It didn't really happen on purpose and I think there are a lot of people out there that could achieve the same success. I wanted to create a realistic guide about how I started and how you could do it to. As well as share some tips on how to avoid some of my mistakes.

Follow along and brainstorm what your side project could be. Want some tips or advice? Just post a question or project. I look forward to hearing your side project ideas.
