TheBuddyGear Brand was inspired by several life experiences. Many people, including myself, were bullied at a young age. As an only child, I found myself alone at most times outside of family, with no friends or companions. Many people understand how this feels. I was always the nice guy, and as the old adage goes, “Nice guys always finish last”. Well, not anymore…
Ever since I could remember, my mom gave me the nickname “Buddy”. I don’t know where it came from, and I never thought much of it, but whenever she’d call, I’d answer. Fast forward to now, my DJ and emcee name is BuddyJames, and I truly try to live up to the name, being a Buddy, and friend to any and everyone, to treat all others with respect, and do onto others as you’d have them do unto you.
I’ve always had aspirations of being an entrepreneur, running my own businesses, it’s even what I went to college for. Over the years I’ve had the very fortunate blessing of being able to travel this World over, 34 countries and counting, and through it all, just never got around to that business I thought about for years. Well now the time has come. No more procrastinating, no more excuses, BuddyJames is finally bringing you TheBuddyGear!
The logo of two different colored hexagons represent two different people, different in any way you can think of in your own personal view. Two of the sides touch; One has the other’s back, they’re connected. As humans, we are all connected in someway, shape, or form. Someone halfway around the world that you’ve never even met or seen, depends on you in some way, be it big, or small. We sometimes associate adjacent hexagons with a honeycomb, or honeybees. Bees are essential to human existence in ways you can’t even fathom. If the bees go extinct, so do the humans. If we humans don’t take care of our World and each other, it will soon go extinct too.
This brand wants to bridge the gap, inspire, and empower. This brand is everything against racism, colorism, bullying, and everything with preserving and growing relationships and friendships of people around the world, and even those you come into contact with on a daily basis. Join the movement, become a Buddy to someone, even if that someone… is yourself.
