Hello My Fellow Chicagoans- 

This weeks blog is about is about how many times I've failed - recently - and the things I do to get myself out of it. Now, I'm not a therapist, far from it, but I am an entrepreneur. And entrepreneurs have to pay attention, and stay resilient. 

Now if you are actually taking the time to read this - congrats - and welcome to my diary. 


So let's just jump right in.

I failed at my kickstarter, embarrassingly far from my goal. I have launched pop-ups and not made enough money. I have been rejected from fashion shows, not been accepted into art shows, and lost contests. It seems like every work email I send doesn't get a reply. I have applied and failed at project runway for not 1, not 2, but 3 years now. I just got that email the other day so that's fresh on my mind. 

But it inspired me to do a video. 

You hear most of your life that you're supposed to fail a bunch before you succeed, but it doesn't soften the blow when you lose time, money, and ego. 

The only thing that helps - is other people. 

I would like you to meet my team. 


These are all photos taken and edited by me for the BTS of the "fail" video we are about to put out. @thebestjuan is editing it as we speak, which if you have ever seen my videos, you know that it's going to be good. 

All outfits are NICZKA exclusives, and will be available on the site (or in my DMs:, very soon. 

Please follow to see the video and other footage from the NICZKA team. @nikkimacey @tessaclemonsmodeling @iamerickforeal @tattoos_malcolm
