Johnny shares his story of starting 16 businesses before the age of 16; How he took his t-shirts from his car, to creating a worldwide cult-like following of t-shirt collectors, and how you can build brand loyalty.
How do you turn a t-shirt brand that’s sold from the trunk of a rusty car into a global multimillion dollar business?
