Meet Addis Elliott and E. Nikk Halliday of Dreamxland Clothing

Today we’d like to introduce you to Addis Elliott and E. Nikk Halliday.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Addis and E. Nikk. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Dreamland Clothing was originally founded on the small ideal of self-expression through fashion. Our founder, “Erinik Halliday” began by making personal articles of clothing for himself and close friends a few years ago. The rest of team came together at the end of 2016 to support our founder in this endeavor as we came to a realization that our dreams for success can be made reality if we work at them diligently. We also realized that as a team, our possibilities are endless if we stick together and continue to strive for greatness.

Since then, we’ve been able to garner a reasonable amount of support from our friends, family, and acquaintances across our different disciplines. As we continue to grow as individuals, we look forward to the exponential growth that the business will develop as we share our ideals with the world!

Another driving force behind the creation of this business was to promote the ideal that if you ‘Dream Big, and Work Hard’ you can manifest and materialize your dreams! Through the sale of clothing/accessories, the company supports positive thinking, embracing each other’s differences, and materializing your dream personal success through fashion and creative expression.

Some of the things that got us to where we are today are based in the lessons we’ve learned along the way. (1) Learning never stops, do your homework! (2) Don’t be discouraged by obstacles, turn them into opportunities by working smart and pushing forward. (3) Believe in your team! (4) Keep detailed notes/documentation on business activities. (5) Hold each other accountable. (6) Never give up on the dream!

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
As a team of individuals with no direct background in business, there were quite a few obstacles that we’ve encountered since our incorporation. Some of the typical struggles associated with a business that has multiple major stakeholders were apparent. (1) Conflicts of opinions on what should be created/produced. (2) Limited presence of members/stakeholders due to scheduling conflicts. (3) Lack of understanding on the legalities of what should be in place to legitimize a business. (4) Limited funding to support our ideas for promoting a profitable business. Though challenging, we found a way to move past these obstacles and press forward.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Dreamxland Clothing story. Tell us more about the business.
