J. Alexander Martin Wants To Give You The Secret To Success

by Cedric ‘BIG CED’ Thornton

The FUBU co-founder releases his third book, “The Strength of For Us By Us The Secret to The Success”

The fashion mogul just released his third book,

He said the time was right for the book to come out with all the political and racial strife in the world, and it’s time for us, as a people, to come together.
“I think in these times, politically with the right and the left and you know, race relations and things, are just fueling, you know, us as a people, I think it’s time for us to just really just kind of reflect on each other and come together. In this book, I found a lot of examples of people who harness the power of togetherness, the power of respecting each other and coming together for a common goal. Again, with FUBU and how we have grown from selling a hat to over $6 billion in sales, countless awards, and being in museums and history books. It’s like, who got us here? The people got us. The culture that is here, us coming together or people supporting each other, and us supporting each other, all you guys got us here, and that’s really what the book’s about.”

Martin also explained that a community or even a brotherhood can help “us” succeed when we are all working together for a common cause.
“You being a Black man, I being a Black man, I reach out to you and say I have something new. The first thing you do is call me. Listen, when do you want to do a quick interview? Now you have the power. I have the book, but we’re coming together. That’s the secret. A lot of people don’t understand that. That’s what that is. It’s our secret. How have we been successful for so many years? Right. We don’t know. We just think it’s not us. We think it’s, you know, it’s an individual thing. No, it’s the power of us coming together and helping each other. And help, and not look down or bring the crabs in the barrel situation.”

Martin is the quintessential entrepreneur that we all can and should learn from. Although he didn’t go into detail, he did allow me to be privy to bigger things on the horizon for him and FUBU, including a major studio being completed. Reading the book can place you ahead of those who don’t, and the valuable lessons learned come from an accomplished expert.
