Today we’d like to introduce you to Corey Ward.
So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
The concept for Chapter XII came in 2016. In my early twenties, I made a lot of bad decisions which resulted in problems with the law. With felonies on my record, it made it difficult to find a solid career choice. I prayed to GOD for some guidance and direction.
So I found myself at a bible study Wednesday afternoon, and my pastor Michael Fisher was teaching about the number 12. He taught about the meaning and uniqueness Of the number and how GOD utilized it. I was very intrigued because I didn’t know a number held that much importance and power. Soon as bible study was over, I told one of my homies Rob Hill who attended with me, that I wanted to start a clothing line. He’s response word for word was “do it”. He had a clothing line himself and he basically started me off.
I came up with the name a couple days later and created a logo for it. Initially I started selling hats and people gravitated to them. Few months later I started selling clothes and I been climbing the latter ever since.
Great, 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?
The journey has been everything but easy. The fashion business is very trendy so finding ways to remain relevant can be challenging. Exercising my creativity to create pieces that people can connect with is very important to me. But I’m never afraid to try new things and push myself towards greatness. Chapter XII is going to be hard to ignore very soon.
Please tell us about Chapter XII (twelve).

Is there a characteristic or quality that you feel is essential to success?
I believe in the Nipsey Hussle mentality that with hard work and dedication, I will not only reach but surpass my goals to success. Focus is mandatory so I can carry out tasks on a daily basis. Also, remain humble above all things. Thank GOD for everything because just as fast as you got it, you can lose it.
