As promised we, have been talking about our brand and giving everyone a little bit of an insight into the Brand, Young Rich Famous Authentic Apparel.
We spoke to the CEO Clint and got to delve a little bit deeper into the brand and the daily operations
It all starts with an idea. Then, mapping it out and getting started. Some say the first few steps of a new business are the most difficult to take, but in fact, isn’t it more difficult to maintain what you’ve started? To not only be average but to reach new heights, set new goals, grow, strive and put your name on the map? Clint Snyders, the owner and CEO of Young Rich Famous Authentic Apparel, knows everything about mapping out a new business idea to achieve a goal and has been working on his business idea for 10 years.
Why was Young Rich Famous Authentic Apparel created as an online store?
Ever since I started following some e-commerce podcasts I’ve been thinking about creating my own e-commerce operation. I didn’t see the opportunity yet because most of these podcasts I followed only spoke about marketing digital products (which didn’t inspire me). Once I learned about online business and started defining my product and niche, I realized that it took a whole lot of variables to run a successful online business and using the correct tools and avenues anyone can thrive online these days. In a nutshell, that’s how youngrichfamous.co.za was born.
Who are the people behind Young Rich Famous Authentic Apparel?
Currently the only person is our CEO – me, Clint. I created an Alfa product by brainstorming and coming up with the concept. Once I had something to show I started looking for manufacturers, pattern makers, cmt’s and fabric suppliers. I can’t even remember where I found most of the people I currently work with. All I remember is that for several years I asked everyone and everywhere to introduce me to people in the various fields, the right people, the kind of people that would share my passion, vision and make it a reality.
What was the most difficult thing about getting started?
Each stage of your project comes with its own set of possible issues. So there are some things that are difficult when you’re just starting out and completely different things when you’ve been at it for years. In our case, the development stage while you don’t have any sales was particularly difficult.
It wasn’t easy to stay motivated, mostly because we didn’t know if it would work out. Maybe we’re doing all of this for nothing.
But with that being said if you believe in your product and design, others will too. All you need to do is build a great following and a great audience, somewhat like family. Then it becomes hard for you to be ignored couple that with a great Mindset and you can build something unstoppable.
All you need is to be patient, the right support, especially from family and friends anything is possible. We are grateful and thankful for everyone one of those people that are and have been with us on this journey so far.
Is managing your online store a full-time job?
For me, it is a full-time thing. We are still in the early stages of our business which means I am a wearer of many hats. I manage our social media, PR outreach, online adverts, and photo shoots. That takes up a lot of time and is definitely a full-time gig, keeping me busy so it is very important to keep a schedule to keep track of all that has to be done for the day, week and month ahead. I also have a day job so, I have to carefully manage that, they don’t overlap and my girlfriend Jasmine and I also have a beautiful active 1 year 4 month old son Hunter, so it is a full-time job. We could say I fully utilize my 24 hours, waiting till all the hard-work comes to fruition
What is your biggest day-to-day challenge individually and as a team?
For me personally the biggest challenge is micromanaging everything – taking care of 100’s of little tasks every week requires hardcore discipline (still working on this one). As a team of one, my biggest challenge is to manage the website development while working my day job.
Planning ahead also helps a lot and setting goals and breaking those up into smaller tasks greatly eases the load. It hasn’t been easy, but nothing worth it in life ever is, all I can say is business teaches you a lot of new skills and in this day and age, invest yourself in getting to know what apps and technology is available to your business. There are a lot of those to help automate your business trust me, you cannot get to all the emails yourself, so plan in the early stages while you still have time to do so.
How do people find out about your store?
There’s definitely that word of mouth effect that helps, Google ads, Facebook ads but when it comes to something we can actually measure, we use digital adverts. We would like to make use of influencer marketing to tell people about ourselves. SEO is also starting to bring in more and more traffic so it can be a good long-term strategy.
Finally, what would be your advice to people who are considering starting up their own online store?
Simply put – make your first sale as soon possible! Thank you for reading a little bit about our brand. Hope you find inspiration in what we do and love our products.

Today we are going to focus on the word consistency;
It goes hand in hand with discipline and discipline is something that is cultivated over time by being a certain way consistently – is described
1.in every case or on every occasion; invariably.“the vehicle consistently outperforms some of the best competitors”
2.in a fair and impartial way.“students have to be treated consistently by all staff members”The reason why we talk about it today is because it is also accompanied by the Hustle, no one of these can go without the other.We believe in 3 things here at Young Rich Famous Authentic Apparel;#Mindset#Hard-work#DedicationThese are 3 real words, they come before success, not in the middle or after success. These 3 words represent a lifestyle, the hustle is a lifestyle. You do it from day 1 and you align it with a very clear vision of what it is you want to achieve.Lifestyle like the word says is style for life, not for the moment but forever. If your aim is to be flashy you should know it will be over quick and you will be left forgotten. Flashy illuminates everything for a short while, so it never lasts.The blood sweat and tears put in behind the scenes is what build a solid foundation, that cannot be moved. Because on this a reputation will be built that will not be tarnished by your enemies.So our words today is to lay those foundations now, no matter how long it takes, for eventually those will determine how strong you will be when the storm hits.
Happy Tuesday YRFAA Family
26 Reasons Why Leggings Are The Best
They may not have zippers, pockets, or buttons, but they’re arguably the best way to cover your backside.
1. The obvious: they are the most comfortable pants ever.
Nothing beats relaxing in some spandex that doesn’t remind you of the last meal you ate or whatever body part your jeans unforgivably dig into.
2. Everyone has days when “real” pants with buttons and zippers just seem like a terrible idea.
3. They are so versatile! Case in point: the legging + sweater pairing
A gazillion options, some of which aren’t possible with “real pants.”
4. Leggings allow our limbs the freedom they deserve.
We sit all day in restrictive pants, Spanx, tights, etc. Don’t we owe our legs a break once in a while to have full range of motion?
5. This all-too-common jean situation rarely happens with leggings.
6. Thanks to spandex, this also is a rare legging phenomenon.
7. For those proud of their exceptional derrières, nothing flaunts this asset better.
8. Leggings make wearing boots easy and bunch-free. Who wants to deal with this 6-step process?
9. They have solid day-to-night potential.
10. They can make the rough transition from the workday to working out less of a pain. All you have to do is swap the top.
11. They make exercising outdoors so much more bearable in the winter.
12. Plus, they don’t rustle, chafe, ride up, move around, or get caught in things when you’re in the throws of a no-nonsense workout.
Can you imagine if she were wearing shorts?
13. Leggings also solve the classic “shir-ress” conundrum: too long for a shirt, too short for a dress.
This woman could use a good pair of leggings.
14. They unequivocally make the most stylish loungewear.
15. Aside from snow pants, cashmere and knit leggings are some of the warmest bottoms around.
…especially when they’re fleece-lined!
SO. DAMN. COZY.
16. And when leggings don’t suffice, they make an unbeatable companion to leg warmers and thick knee-highs.
17. They can also be pretty badass.
20. Although some definitely take leggings too far, no one can argue against their potential as a creative canvas.
21. And to those who object to leggings being “see-through,” rest assured they can be as opaque as you want them to be.
23. And in a society that tells us constantly to “mask our flaws,” leggings are a statement of defiance.
24. And when we do want to suck it all in, a high-waisted legging does the trick.
Let’s be real. No one wants to suffocate in Spanx.
Leggings are AWESOME, people. The best, in fact.
26. And for definitive proof: Beyoncé agrees.
