Meet Xavier Goodloe of Good or Great GOG

Today we’d like to introduce you to Xavier Goodloe.

Xavier, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
My story starts on the football field at Western New Mexico University where I met Tre Norman. It was my sophomore year in college and My coach at the time James Thomas was big on motivation. He used to say “good isn’t good when greatness is expected, what’s it gonna be?” Words that never really meant anything to me I would hear them but I wouldn’t apply them. Two years later, my daughter was being born and I finally got what my coach was saying all those years ago and decided to apply it to my daily life. I could settle for being good but is that going to be good enough, or I could push myself and try to become the best version of Xavier possible. I believe that greatness is a choice just like most things in life you choose whether or not you’re okay with being mediocre.

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?
It has not been a smooth road to get to this point that I am at now but this is only the beginning. It has been a struggle for me learning how to be a parent as well as being a young entrepreneur and trying to start my own business. I am also an aspiring amateur boxer. With dreams of becoming a professional in the next couple of years.

Please tell us about the business.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite childhood memory is from the 7th grade. At the age of five I was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata a hair loss disease that attacks my immune system making it hard for me growing. I was picked on and teased from about age six to age 13 when I went to Clippers game to meet Charlie Villanueva. He was at the time playing for the Milwaukee Bucks, and he has Alopecia. It was perfect for me I got to meet other kids with Alopecia and I got to see an NBA player who had it as well. That was the day that I decided I would no longer allow what other people said affect me personally. It was a relief knowing that I wasn’t alone.
