A second season to most, is really just a continuation of something that has already started. In sports, in TV shows, and in podcasts. The dedicated team at Cours Clothing really hopes to change this perception. To the family, it’s actually a major commitment to the viewers, team members, and doubters that this movement is much more than just an experiment or hobby.
This second season, in theory, means the Cours Clothing team is in fact taking this very seriously. The team truly hopes you’ll see; this is the farthest thing from the ever popular front put up by “wantrepreneurs” to put out an image that they’re putting in work; when in reality they’re not.
For this first episode of season 2, along with all episodes going forward, Andrew sat down with a fellow entrepreneur and founder, Adam Carandang. Adam is a Co-Founder of Novelty Growth; a creative networking agency that hopes to, and has been bringing together some of Indianapolis’s top creators, social media influencers, business owners, and movers and doers alike. Adam explains how the team does this in person with premiere networking events throughout downtown Indianapolis, and on social media platforms such as Instagram, in particular.
Andrew couldn’t help but agree how powerful the events have been for him. The combination of networking (forming genuine relationships with people who aren’t too intoxicated to have a conversation) and relieving stress at the same time really stood out to him.
“Yes bro. Something that we realized, and that we feel is relatable to a lot of people is that there’s a lot of people out there who are just living for the weekend,” Adam explains, “They’re going to the bars just to kind of get black out drunk to forget about their week.”
Adam and Andrew both agree; there is much value in putting together high-caliber events for high-caliber people looking to do more than just live for the weekend.
The Concept of Time
“The biggest downfall, or disconnect that I’ve seen in the workplace as well as life in general is the aspect of time. That’s one of the things that we are not guaranteed. We know that on a day-to-day basis we’ve got 24 hours. I know that when I wake up, I made it through another day”, Andrew explains. “And then from that point, we don’t know; we’re taking it day by day, minute by minute, second by second. So this aspect of living for the weekend is just very backwards.”
Andrew goes on to explain just how powerful being in the moment, and grateful for the present can be through the example of one of his mentors, Tim Jones, an ex police officer who was shot a couple years ago towards the end of his shift.
Andrew explains how Tim is still recovering from a once critical condition, but has maintained this mindset of gratitude and living for the moment. “He’s doing everything they told him he wasn’t going to be able to do. He wasn’t going to walk, he wasn’t going to talk, he wasn’t going to be able to stand up on his own”, Andrew notes, “And he has defied all those odds with a smile on his face.”
The Cours Family
Just as Tim puts one foot in front of other on his road to recovery with a smile on his face, the Cours Clothing team plans to add a brick, every day, to the hopeful mansion that is Cours Clothing. An inviting house and family welcome to those fueled by-
- Having a vision.
- Making a plan to fulfill that vision.
- And staying the Cours until that visual is reality.
