What I do: I design apparel with my trademark saying “Do Work That Matters” on it. It allows people to spread the message about the real heroes next door.
When and how I started my business: I started when I was 11 and in the sixth grade. I was designing a T-shirt online, and I had a farmer with the saying “Do Work That Matters.” I showed my parents, and they liked my idea and asked me how I came up with it. They helped me get the saying trademarked, and I started doing tees, sweatshirts and hats.
What inspired me: My mom’s grandparents live on a farm in Virginia. Since I can remember, I love to visit the farm and spend time there. I always wanted to help when I was little and finally got to when I was old enough. But I grew up watching my great-granddad and my Great-Uncle Eddie work so hard and be so dedicated. That is how I came up with Do Work That Matters, because they work hard to help others. My Great-Granddad Miller has since passed, but my uncle still farms, and I still try to help out any way I can when we visit.
If I weren’t doing this, I’d: Spend more time with friends or on my bike.
Best advice I’ve received: My dad always tells me “Take chances in life; you don’t know if they are going to turn out good or bad, but if you don’t take the chance, you will never know your potential.
In my ”free time,” I like to: Race motocross and spend time with my two dogs, Leo and Webster.The title of my autobiography would be: “Live to Ride ... Ride to Live.”
