Meet Phil Good

Today we’d like to introduce you to Phil Good.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Phil. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I started my Phìl Good Rag line a year ago in May and what got me started was me looking back on my childhood and realizing how much we as kids spent on beauty supply durags. We would always have the same 4-5 solid colors and I wanted to change the culture by adding more styles and patterns to the game and possibly one day, I could have my rags being sold in a beauty supply and being the first African American with his own line being sold in stores. Now today, we have over 30 different styles and plan to create more as time goes on & will venture out to bonnets and headbands.

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?
Struggles I deal with are finding new ways to market the products constantly, staying up to date with the latest designs, keeping up with inventory(paying for merchandise), managing sales, keeping up with the competition all of the above. It hasn’t been the easiest but it all pays off in the end when I see those sales :).

We’d love to hear more about your business.
I am the owner of Phìl Good Rags in which we sell durags, bonnets, and headbands. I’m also a music producer in which I incorporate in my Phìl Good Rags business. I’ve been a music producer for four years and I’ve had my Durag line for over a year now and I’m most proud of our variety, willing to stay consistent, sales in both music and the business, and setting myself up for financial freedom. What sets me aside from others is my willing to keep up with the latest and freshest styles, we go out of our way to make our customers happy, and we’re a black-owned independent business with the best prices and finest quality around.

What were you like growing up?
Growing up the kind of things I like to do was hoop, if I wasn’t hooping I was playing PlayStation with cousins, I played the drums for four years is which started my music passion. I didn’t start making beats until I was 19, I had just started community college and wanted to do something that would keep me out of trouble and became a hobby of mines and turned into another source of income within 2 1/2 years.
