Marc Ecko Learns From Developing Nations
Marc Ecko's artistic journey began in the mid-80s in a makeshift design studio and showroom located in the garage of his parent's New Jersey home. A member of the then emerging hip-hop scene, Ecko caught the attention of the generation's new cultural icons including Spike Lee and Chuck D, who wore his t-shirts. These events precipitated his founding of *ecko unltd. in 1993, when he was 20. Since then, Marc Ecko Enterprises has grown to include 12 separate *ecko unltd. and red by marc ecko apparel and accessories lines, the contemporary Marc Ecko "Cut & Sew" collection, G-Unit Clothing Company, Zoo York, Avirex, Complex magazine, and a recently launched video game and multi-media entertainment division. Last year the full-scale global fashion and lifestyle company reported billings of over $1 billion. Marc's designs represent a broad spectrum of lifestyles and interests, from casual to contemporary, urban activewear to action sports. His brands have won an extremely loyal audience within a broad 13-30 age demographic. Over the years, he has also dedicated himself to a number of socially conscious initiatives, including significant work with underserved youth domestically and internationally, and a dedicated role in reversing the plight of the world's rhino population.

If you're lacking confidence and feel like you could benefit from an ego boost, try writing your life story.
In truth, so much of what happens to us in life is random – we are pawns at the mercy of Lady Luck. To take ownership of our experiences and exert a feeling of control over our future, we tell stories about ourselves that weave meaning and continuity into our personal identity.
