Today we’d like to introduce you to Jonathan “Izzy” Isburgh.
Hi Izzy, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
Absolutely, and thank you for giving me the opportunity to explain what my company, Eyecon Forever clothing, is all about. I was watching Shark Tank with my parents at their house during Thanksgiving weekend 2021. There was one more business presenting next after the commercial. My parents were too tired so they went to bed, I stayed up to finish the episode, per usual. What came next was quite an inspiring fifteen-year-old boy and his mother from Pennsylvania, USA with a clothing line and nice concept. As I continued to watch the episode, the more I began to realize there is not a brand out there that has the quality of Gucci with also the motivation of Nike.
“In Greatness We Strive”
Eyecon Forever naturally embraces all races, sexes and minds alike with a very positive undertone to help inspire and drive anyone to success, whether that someone is trying to win a race, or fighting every day to get out of their wheelchair to walk again. The Eyecon Forever brand embodies success, passion and inspiration. Eyecon Forever is an inspirational designer clothing line to put it simply. Eyecon Forever honors the legends, or Eyecons, such as the great Steve Jobs from Apple or musical artists such as Drake that have walked, and do walk this earth.
“An Eyecon defies all odds to achieve greatness. Inspired by a passion, energized by ideas and rewarded with admiration. Do you have what it takes to be an Eyecon Forever?”
I am determined to spread the energy, influence and showcase the power of Eyecon Forever across the globe starting from here in Jacksonville, Florida, USA. My goal is to inspire millions. If Eyecon Forever can motivate just one person to achieve their level of success, that would make me so happy! Eyecon Forever is here to help people find the greatness within themselves. The inspiration of Eyecon Forever is universally endless.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The screen-printing process has been the biggest challenge thus far. Our first batch of 200 shirts was misprinted. Although very frustrating, the brand itself Eyecon Forever, continued to keep me focused on the goals needing to be achieved and with a good attitude.
“The “eye” in Eyecon means you see a bright future and the “CON” stands for Control Over Negativity & Constantly On New”
The second time around printing the shirts, I gave the new screen printer a few shirts to test print, before printing the entire batch, so it’s getting smoother 🙂
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I really enjoy hands-on things which is why I have taken on sewing the tags manually onto the Eyecon Forever shirts myself. My sewing skills are what I am most proud of and I know so much more about it now than ever before. What sets me apart from others is I think the vast amount of skills I have for example, sewing, electronics/technology, mechanical skills, etc, but most definitely my work ethic above them all. I can use my sewing, marketing, business management and work ethic skills to grow the business and inspire this world for the better!
Do you have any advice for those looking to network or find a mentor?
Yes, my advice would be to put in the time and talk with people you already know and ask questions. There have been so many times when I have already known someone for many years already when we come across a topic that they are very knowledgeable about and can provide such invaluable information regarding that topic. You just have to ask questions and probe the people around you.
