    Similar to running your own business and being an entrepreneur, your results are directly correlated to your efforts. With that said, the Sales Partner compensation is one hundred percent performance-based. You will be compensated with a percentage of the profits on each order that you close. You will be solely responsible for dictating the sale price to the customer and therefore responsible for the profits that you make on each order. The larger the order and the bigger the profit, the more money you make. Sales Partners who provide extreme value and service to their customers can warrant higher prices and therefore make more money. These Sales Partners can expect to profit $250 per order or $50 per hour on average if they're efficient with their time. Sales Partners who put in the effort and follow our mentorship will be substantially rewarded for their efforts. We have many Sales Partners on campuses across the country who are making substantial profits, with the top performers pulling in over $20,000+ per school year, and we are confident that you can too.

    The earning potential is unheard of for a campus opportunity. We have had Sales Partners profit upwards of $20,000 on a single order and many Sales Partners consistently pull in over $1,000 in profit on every order. The customer network is top tier. As the main point of customer contact, you build a network and hold deep relationship with community leaders, decision makers, athletes and influencers. We have Sales Partners who text daily with influencers with over 10M followers, the top athlete at their school, sorority presidents and local business owners. The real world experience for a student is unparalleled, this is truly the ultimate entrepreneurial experience. You will learn and utilize your marketing and sales skills, negotiate deals for thousands of dollars, handle customer service, and get paid substantially based on the profits you produce.

    Yes! Sales Partners have worked personally with influencers such as Angry Reactions (25M), Creating Wonders (10M), Doggface (7M), Friday Beers (1.5M), Jen Nicole (1.5M), Thoren Bradley (3.5M) and many more! They've also worked directly with the top athletes at their school, helping the athletes monetize their audience per the new NIL rules.

    As a college student, we understand the many applicants may not have sales, design, or work experience.

All of our lessons are taught live by a mentor who has done it before with a proven success record. Once the formal four-week onboarding is complete, your personal development journey will continue with one on one mentor calls, company-wide strategy meetings, exclusive team group chats, professional guest speakers and so much more.

And our promise is to do just that!

    Your number one goal is to grow and maintain a customer base. You will serve as their go-to resource for bringing their custom apparel vision to life.
