It is said that “It only takes a vision and the will to work on that vision to make a great difference”.
It was one Great morning, I, Jameze along with a group of creative friends stumbled upon the idea of creating GroundUp Media & Entertainment known as GUM. We had a vision in our minds and passion in our hearts to create the best possible exposure for the music we had been creating.
Our idea was concrete, we wanted to broadcast content which was built from the Ground Up through various media outlets. We wanted people to know who we were and what we were doing. So to get started, we came up with basic tees with simple vinyl prints spelling out our Acronym across the left chest. People started talking to our brand name and were curious about what it all was. They began asking for shirts, and that was the first milestone in which GUM started to Grow. The response we’ve gotten from our supporters is what keeps us moving, it’s very humbling and drives my growth in working to create even better products for our customers.
“Where there is a will, there is a way. If there is a chance in a million that you can do something, anything, to keep what you want from ending, do it. Pry the door open or, if need be, wedge your foot in that door and keep it open.” —Pauline Kael
We’ve been consciously working on GUM for approximately 2 years, building our regional expansion through the apparel and music we create. We’re able to boost awareness of the brand through various events we host and media outlets we own such as the GrounduP.media website. We want our supporters to love us for authenticity and originality. We keep a pace that ensures we deliver the best products. In the near future, we are planning to promote up and coming Talents based in local communities around the Wiregrass area.
Outside of being the founder of GUM, I’m an individual who has learned to be thankful for every moment given, for each opportunity, for growth and prosperity. I was brought up around a loving family in Clio, Alabama. They’ve been in continuous support throughout this journey. I’m honoured to have friends whom I can call family as well. Handling GUM has been my biggest responsibility. The biggest challenge I’ve faced is patience and wanting to have everything done in the “NOW” time but then you realize that you are doing your best just by overcoming your own shortcomings. I would have to say that I’m my biggest competitor. Sometimes I have to know to get out of my own way to get things moving.
In concluding this bio of GUM’s beginnings, I’d just like to mention that You should continue striving for and building your dreams. There is no limit in life other than those you place on yourself. Every day is a new day that we can build from the ground up.
Thank you for showering your love on us. We are grateful!
