Today I’m pumped to share the unusual story behind how Marc Ecko turned his love of street art into a billion dollar clothing company.
You see, like most artists, he got the “itch” early on, but he abandoned his craft for a much more stable career move – pharmacy school.
He didn’t last long though, and he soon dropped out to launch a clothing company.
He shares everything on this new Social Triggers Insider podcast, and here’s why I’m excited to share this with you:
Here are 5 reasons why you should listen to this podcast today:
1. This isn’t some “rosy” tale of crazy success. Yes, he built one of the largest clothing companies, but he flirted with failure and beat it. It’s inspiring.
2. He’s a commercial artist. He never “sold out,” but he did turn his art into a successful business. All business owners should take note.
3. If you’ve ever stressed about designs or logos, you’ll see what Marc Ecko – the street artist – thinks about logos. It might surprise you.
4. Have you ever thought, “It’s gotta be hard to build a business based on creativity?” If yes, you’ll see how Marc Ecko makes it sound like anyone can do it.
5. And more.

As I mentioned on the podcast, Marc Ecko has a new book out. It’s called Unlabel: Selling You Without Selling Out.
I received an advanced copy and read it in like 2 days. It was a book I just couldn’t put down. If you’re a creative, and you’re looking to make a living from your work, I believe this book will be the book you reference for years to come.
So, I highly suggest you pick up the book here on Amazon. That’s an affiliate link, but trust me – it’s not for the commissions. I use book sale numbers to ensure I continue to land the BEST guests on Social Triggers Insider. Period.
I should also note: By now, as a Social Triggers subscriber, you probably know I’m an avid reader, successfully reading a few books each week. And I can honestly say this is one of the better books I’ve read in the last 12 months.
