EE-Vuhl Clothing Brings Whole New Meaning To The Word
As a child, most of us saw evil as something that was in movies. We would think of characters like Darth Vader or Freddy Krueger. At one point in my life I actually believed that Tom Brady and Bill Belichek were evil. Then as we got older we start to understand true evil, including the topic of mental health and personal demons. There are many thing people battle internally and externally, and each person handles situations differently. Enter 22-year old Ethan Mitchell and his business EE-Vuhl Clothing, and his message on the topic of true evil.
“I created this clothing brand to help myself and others overcome any ‘evil’ in their life. I want to let others know that they are not alone and that I am here to help them ‘Overcome it All’. This brand brings out the positivity in me and I know others as well,” said Mitchell.
Started three years ago, Mitchell says he has seen growing success since the beginning. When discussing the root and sole of the business, he attributes much of his success to learning how to screen print clothes and become more creative with his designs.
“I wanted to create more every single day. I have created and printed designs for other people/artists and printed custom designs,” said Mitchell.
How has running a business been for you? What prompted you to venture down this path?
“Running my own business gives me the freedom to create and choose every design. It makes me genuinely happy to make clothing for other people knowing the meaning behind it,” said Mitchell. “The main reason I created this clothing brand is because I had felt alone and wanted to make a change for not only myself but everyone else going through the same experiences. Others have told me they feel invincible in my clothing, and that is why I do what I do.”
Bringing strength to people is something that can change lives. Millions of people around the world suffer from mental illness or personal hardship. Even if it is just clothing, Mitchell is happy to support others in their battle. In-turn he hopes that his inspiration can also help support people.
What is something you wish that you knew before you started this business journey? What advice would you give to other young entrepreneurs?
“One thing I know now that I wish I knew when I started is that with the right mindset, you can do anything you set your mind to. I was not in the best place when starting this brand, but knowing what I know now, it has taken me and my creativity to a whole other level. Advice I would give to upcoming entrepreneurs is to not let anything, especially the internet, discourage you from your goals,” said Mitchell.
As for the community, Mitchell is excited to bring positive energy to the area. Adding to that, he wants to show people alternative methods of dealing with negativity in their life. A simple message is what he aims for, make the world a better place. Mitchell says that by just doing that, it even helps him to have a better outlook on life.
What does it mean for you to be a creator, and not just a business owner?
“Being a creator to me means being able to inspire others and showing my supporters to never give up no matter how hard life gets. My inspirations for becoming a creator was to make a change in the world and prove to myself that I can pursue my dreams. I am destined for this opportunity, I love what I do and nothing can change that. My vision for the future is to expand my clothing brand and instill change and positivity into anybody that comes in contact with my clothing brand,” said Mitchell.
“Create what you love, to overcome the EE-VUHL”
