MADE 2 Hustle Event Aims to Sharpen Apparel Decorators’ Skillset
Influencers extend beyond the Kim Kardashians and Tik Tok-ers of the world, especially when it comes to influencers who educate others in their communities. On June 25-26, three major influencers in the apparel industry will come together for an educational event geared toward sharpening business and apparel decorating skills.
In collaboration with MADE Lab, the MADE 2 Hustle event will be a two-day interactive event that focuses on heat transfer, screen printing, direct-to-garment (DTG) printing, embroidery, and a variety of business and marketing subjects. But that’s not all.
Three influencers will be joining the event, helping teach, train, and offering advice:
- Stan Banks – T-shirt Side Hustle
- Rich Kuhn – Hustle Ninjas
- Allan Wade – Adubb Productions
Between the three, there is a combined total of 365,000 YouTube and social media subscribers. Kuhn is an online entrepreneur with a large following of his YouTube videos filled with educational content specifically aimed at clothing creation and brand building. Wade specializes in teaching embroidery and DTG techniques, also primarily through video and YouTube.
Banks has created over 1,000 videos with almost 6 million views and has built a community of over 125,000 YouTube and social media subscribers, all in the name of educating apparel decorators. “Stan Banks has defined what it means to empower yourself and leverage your economic potential by creating a side-hustle in the decorated apparel space,” says Tom Davenport, co-founder of MADE Lab. “He has motivated a huge community of creative individuals, many of whom may turn their side-hustle into a full-time gig, to take control of their destiny. MADE Laboratory could not be more excited to partner with Stan on producing MADE 2 Hustle, a live experience that will educate, entertain, and inspire all who attend.”
“The MADE 2 hustle conference is here to bridge the gap and empower you to grow your hustle,” adds Banks. “We’re connecting influencers, subject matter experts, and community for hustlers to take their hustle from where they are to where they want to be. Here you’ll get business and industry knowledge both hands-on and lecture-based around the decoration industry.”
