Meet Nicholas Robinson of NSRIVGEAR in Compton

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nicholas Robinson.

Nicholas, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I started with the idea of having ownership. Someplace that I can work and pay myself what I feel I deserved vs what was offered to me. I came up with what seemed to be the best idea at that time which was to start my own Clothing Brand. I’ve viewed it as another sources of income I can have independently without limitations on my revenue.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Definitely not a smooth ride. Just like any entrepreneur, I have experienced my fair share of setbacks and profit losses. For example, I previously started a brand without doing proper due diligence. More specifically, checking for trademarks as well as business like names. So in turn, I spent a significant amount of time, energy and, effort into that particular situation. Eventually, I had to cut my losses and rebuild something new from the ground up. The outcome of that experience lead to what is now known as NSRIVGEAR.

NSRIVGEAR – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I would like for NSRIVGEAR to symbolize something long term such as generational wealth. But that all starts with me. Im building this brand from the ground up.

In terms of the brand name itself, its actually an acronym for my own name Nicholas Sylvester Robinson IV which I thought was a unique concept.

In regards to separating myself from others, that’s not my focus. My primary focus at this time is to continue growing my brand. There is plenty of space and money for other entrepreneurs.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I believe you become successful when your able to make a living off what you love to do.
