What Drives Entrepreneur Sylus Modlin’s Success With 2-6 King Wavy?

Published

on

Sylus Modlin is an entrepreneur thriving in this insanely diverse ecosystem of startup businesses in 2020. He is responsible for the 2-6 King Wavy brand of hair care products, which have seen an increase in sales recently. Sylus, who is from Fayetteville, NC is a spiritual business man that has established a premium hair care product line with desires of becoming a family name that his children can one day spearhead. He’s been in the hair care industry a little over three years, and despite the fact that he’s had previous businesses, this one has been one that he’s most passionate about.

Sylus comes from a 2 parent upbringing and gained a whole lot of his center values from his father who was in the army and most of his spiritual gifts from his mother being an entrepreneur, Sylus has discovered that he has to lean more on the spiritual side to keep him going. Up until lately, his 2-6 King Wavy brand was only a side business, however, he realized that “God” gave him the capacity to create a world of his own and be his own author of his story, and no longer will he waste it on doing anything he’s not passionate about.

In addition to being a business owner, Sylus is also a father and all around family man. His biggest focus is family and ownership, “being able to get out of the rat race of not having generational wealth as an African American”. Beyond the brand he takes the time to engage and connect with his supporters, via social media, YouTube, in-person or whatever it takes to be as transparent and genuine as possible. A lot of his audience are on the younger end of the spectrum without father figures and he uses that opportunity to be a role model/positive male figure. It doesn’t just stop there, growing up he knows how vital it is to give back to our communities, with that being said 10% of his company earnings goes to Angels on Wheels Charity Organization. Beyond the earnings, Sylus actively feeds and provides transportation for the homeless as much as he can. He doesn’t have many influences but one entrepreneur that he points out is Master P, because “he believes in the power of ownership with everything he does, from fashion, music, food and more.” In the next 5 years he plans to partner with his wife to help single mothers get back on their feet while watching the 2-6 King Wavy Merch, LLC becoming a brand sold in the top 50 Black Owned beauty supply stores.

While 2-6 King Wavy is an up and coming brand, he’s already worked with a social media heavy hitters such as; Funnyman Gaitlin (IG Influencer), Desi Banks (Comedian), Ha Ha Davis (Comedian), and Corey Pritchett (YouTube Influencer) just to name a few. One thing he wants to leave with anyone that is aspiring to become a business owner is “if you don’t have a relationship with God and if your intentions are not good, Please Do Not Attempt!”

Bay Area Gem Dealer Tim Da Jeweler Unveils Diamond Set Hats

Published

Recently Bay Area Jewelry designer Tim Da Jeweler has announced new groundbreaking work on his new line of micro pave hand set diamond encrusted fitted hats to be designed  in his new luxury showroom in Concord, CA.

After spending time in the insurance industry for several years trying to find his calling, Tim Da Jeweler began to sell simple jewelry at an economic rate online to build his business until he was able to quit his insurance gig.

“I had bought some square earrings off of eBay and I thought about how I could easily sell and make them myself. I started off making square earrings that was the popular style at the time and I was doubling and tripling my money. I was making five times more than I was at the insurance company, so I quit the insurance business to do what I love and I started TSV Jewelers.”

After establishing TSV jewelers as a place where people can buy economical jewelry for less than a few hundred dollars, online Tim Da Jeweler established TDJ to provide the  Bay Area community with high end custom pendants, earrings, rings and more.

“I wanted to be able to cater to all markets. ” Tim Da Jeweler explained. “Starting off my customers need to have a design or I can make the design for a small deposit. I can always spice up someone’s design, but once they approve the design we give them a 3D rendering of the work we are ready to produce.”

Recalling some of his favorite pieces Tim Da Jeweler explained that he always looks for ways to upgrade and augment the look of his customer’s design.

“One time I worked with a client on this pirate piece that says West Pittsburg and it was rose and white gold. We just vibed out when we were just adding details here and there it and it just came out to be a masterpiece. It’s not too crazy but everything just fits and we really worked together to make it perfect,” he said.

Seeking to educate his customers as well, Tim Da Jeweler often speaks to his customers about the limited resell value of diamond encrusted pieces. By educating his customers on the jewelry, Tim Da Jeweler hopes to create a space where everyone can get what they are looking for within their budget.

“It’s expensive to remove diamonds out of the jewelry and it takes time ” Tim Da Jeweler said. “Many  people think their is a resell market for custom jewelry but in reality their isn’t it takes a lot of work to get the diamonds out so you’re really only going to get 20-25% of your money if that after you melt the gold and remove the diamonds out. That’s why we want to make sure they are happy with every piece so they would never want to melt it down.”

Now fully equipped with a showroom, Tim Da Jeweler can give all of his clients the celebrity treatment no matter their background.

“I just opened up a showroom where customers can come in and we can consult and we set up private appointments so we can just talk and brainstorm ideas. I offer promotional packages where we can have a videographer and photographer come in and it’s kind of a luxury feel and celebrity treatment for the everyday customer, you don’t have to be a celebrity to get the star treatment
