For me, perseverance is an active quality. Something I have to remind myself to maintain.

I’m a year and a half into launch BANGS Shoes.

There have been plenty of times of this past year where I have felt discouraged and thought about giving up, but here we are. I haven’t given up.

Throughout this process I have been in touch with countless inspiring, amazing, and supportive people many of whom have influenced BANGS. 

BANGS was begun as a humanitarian brand which offers concerned consumers an opportunity to combine every day purchases with an avenue to help others. I was raised in a family that stressed the importance of allocating money to organizations that better our community, local and global. These lessons paired with the knowledge and experience gained from fumbling my way through a year of international business, I believe now more strongly than ever that our generation has an obligation to change the way businesses are run and our economy functions.

This is not an unreachable goal. 

There was a time not too long ago when business and philanthropy were two very separate, almost opposite things. Today we have the ability and opportunity to create businesses with an awareness of humanity as a whole. 

Whenever I speak about BANGS and the paralleled obstacles, I have received one piece of advice over and over again.

Don’t give up. Persevere. 

So that’s what this blog is about: an effort to embody the ideals that fuel BANGS. Here you’ll find adventure, passion, and things that inspire the BANGS community.
