In today’s society, being authentic and up front about what you have to say is rare, and most can’t handle it. But, today I am going to be discussing a twitter legend. Prominent for always speaking his mind and allowing others to feel comfortable and confident in doing the same, he goes by the name of Dennis formerly known as @OGBEARD on Twitter. Being that his account got suspended he bounced back with a new twitter and within months gained his followers right back like nothing ever happened. Talk about the GOAT.
We consider Dennis an influencer and role model, and we would like for you to get familiar with his quickly rising brand, Good Guy, which he started with his brother just a few years ago. You can literally catch your favorite rapper, basketball player, social media star, instagram model, and even your WCW/MCM wearing the Good Guy brand. If you aren’t familiar with it, we are here to put you on. I was able to ask Dennis just a few quick questions because I wanted to make this short and sweet, and so you can get to know him for yourself.
Read our Q&A down below:
How did your brand come about & what’s the meaning behind the logo?
“The brand came about actually back in 2012 when my brother who is also my business partner Taquil Mason (@goodguyquil on IG) wanted to make a change from the life we were living. I’m from a small town where it’s real easy to get caught up in all the bullshit around it. With everybody knowing everybody there it’s not hard to mess up. We both always receive questions about the logo. He is not a specific person nor does he have a name. He’s more of an ironic image. The “Good Guy” back then always had similar features. Look at Batman and Superman. Middle aged, dark hair, nice glasses, nice smile. A Good Guy. Usually after telling them the name of the brand after seeing the logo they get it. But, he’s more of an ironic image not only because me and my brother are black but also because you don’t have to look like the Good Guy to have good intentions, hence us.”
You opened up your first store for Good Guy in Allentown, PA. How does that feel?
“It was a great feeling honestly! The support in the hometown is unmatched. It’s in a good part of the city as well. It feels like a lounge at times which is cool.”
What advice do you have for young entrepreneurs trying to bring their vision to life?
“Honestly, It’s a different path for everybody you just gotta do what feels right and works for you. Just make sure you give it your all. Some people just do it for some quick cash which waters it down for the people actually trying to take their business to the highest level possible. There’s also the scammers too that make it hard for people to wanna buy something online to begin with. Interaction is key as well. The key to loyal customers. More people wanna see you win than lose.”
We’ve noticed you’re real popular with the ladies, do you consider yourself to be a good guy amongst the women? And what does it take to be a good guy?
“Haha, yeah I guess I consider myself a Good Guy when it comes to women. Most of these guys are just too weird tho. It’s really easy to just kick back and chill that seems to be what women like.”
What should we expect from you in the future?
“You’ll see but thank you for having me!”
