Meet Lorenzo Gordon.
Lorenzo Gordon has put in overtime to elevate his career to the next level as an entrepreneur, which is how he came to found Humbl Hustlr, a lifestyle brand highlighting entrepreneurs and impacting the youth by cultivating the next generation of male business leaders. After working on set in 2016 for a magazine shoot for 12 hours straight it was in that moment he realized he was definitely a “Humbl Hustlr” While most people only recognize the height of someone’s success, Humbl Hustlr celebrates the steady elevation of a person’s career. Strategically omitted from each word, the absent “E” represents the effort and hard work that the general public doesn’t see. Instead, they only acknowledge the success that is the end result of a person’s or organizations passion and determination. Like the “E” is not visible but still apart of the pronunciation so is the effort which is never seen but still a part of the process.
GET TO KNOW LORENZO.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT TGS?
My favorite thing about TGS is the energy. It feels like an HBCU experience everyday for entrepreneurs and corporate innovators. The music, resources, culture, food, and atmosphere is like none other.
If you could have dinner with 3 people, dead or alive, who would you choose and why?
1. Clarence Avant, The Black Godfather. I would love to hear his thoughts on life and his motivation to stay consistent.
2. Kerby Jean-Raymond, Pyer Moss. Would love to hear his perspective on fashion and ways to think outside the box to generate brand awareness.
3. Daymond John, Founder of FUBU and investor on Shark Tank. Would love to learn more about brand expansion and financial investments
What is one piece of advice you’d share with your younger self?
No matter how many free pizzas they offer you, always SAY NO to signing up for a credit card your freshman year in college, lol.
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
