WSP x Uber (Spike Lee) by Brandon Bryant

Hey guys hope all is well. This post is in partnership with the folks over at Uber. Today’s post is focused on the hustle + grind of chasing down your dreams.

In case you haven’t read any of my previous blog posts with Uber, it’s a ride sharing app that lets you request a ride in over 600 cities across the globe.

Now let’s jump into today’s focus. Uber recently teamed up with visionary Spike Lee to showcase the drive + scrappiness of 5 Uber driver-partners in the Brooklyn area in Uber Presents: Da Republic of Brooklyn. This short film series follows the journey of how Uber empowers their hustle and how it allows them to have more control of the finances and schedule while they focus getting closer to their dreams. Whether a woman who is riding for Uber Eats to support her acting career or a gentleman who drives Uber with his dog as his co-pilot, these films are eye opening to the advantages Uber provides to their driver-partners

In regards to my personal hustle if you told me 5 years ago when I graduated from college that I would be a top content creator who works with companies (household names) around the world and that I would have founded a venture capital fund that focuses on investing in people of color + women I would definitely not believe you.

The past few years have been filled with ups and downs for sure. I remember the day I started my blog Wall Street Paper (Jan 19, 2015) like it was yesterday. I shot 4-5 outfits every week and posted 3+ times a day on social media. I attended every industry event, met with marketing leads at brands and spent every piece of my down time studying the content creator realm. I did this all while working 90+ hours on Wall Street as an investment banker. Looking back there wasn’t one particular moment that help me to take off, it has been an accumulation of small wins over a long period of time. It's also been from failing fasting and learning from those failures. I really don’t know where I will be 5 years from now but I suspect I will be focused on getting a little bit better everyday, soaking up knowledge from my experiences and continuing to fail fast.

The photos above are just a few shots in between meetings + calls on a typical on the go day in NYC.

WSP x Uber III by Brandon Bryant

Hey guys hope all is well. This is pt. 3 of my partnership with the folks over at Uber. Today’s post is focused on how I spent a personal day or my day “off” for some much needed “me” time.

In case you haven’t read my previous blog posts with Uber, it’s a ride sharing app that lets you request a ride in over 600 cities across the globe.

Today’s journey start off by sleeping in! It’s rare that I get to sleep past 8am so on my personal day I decided to get some extra shut-eye. Once I woke up I lounged on the couch, ate breakfast and did my morning routine. Then I took a look at the list of cool places I pre-planned to visit.

On the agenda was to check out Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum, the Cooper Hewitt Museum and roam around the Upper East Side. Thankfully I had all of these places saved in my “Saved Places” feature in my Uber app so I didn't have to fumble around looking for the exact address.

I requested an uberX and on the trip I had a ball. Central Park was beautiful as always. Then I visited my favorite part of the MET in the Egyptian wing where they have a pool you can throw pennies in for good luck. It was my first time at the Cooper Hewitt Museum and it blew me away with all of its design focused exhibits.

Well - thank you for kicking it with me for my day off. Let me know what you think about the photos I took along the way

WSP x Macy's X Tommy by Brandon Bryant

Hey guys hope all is well. Today’s post is in partnership with the folks over at Macy’s & Tommy Hilfiger

Recently moved into my new place in Harlem and starting to build out the feng shui for the apartment. The place is getting more cozy each day. During the holidays I had the chance to check out the new Tommy Hilfiger collection from Macy’s.

I chose to test drive two essential sweaters that every guy should have in his closet for the winter season. For outfit #1 I decided to go with a pop of color by choosing the quarter-zip waffle knit sweater in dark harvard red. Quarter-zip sweaters are great for layering (ton of functionality), you can wear a dress shirt or keep it casual with a t-shirt or thin sweater underneath.

I added a little more character to outfit #2 when I chose the waffle knit shawl-collar sweater. This sweater doesn’t have as much functionality as a quarter-zip but it has an elevated look. This is a statement piece that helps add flare or a little spice to your look without a ton of effort.

Well - there you have it. Two essential sweaters for the colder seasons and you had a chance to see how the new apartment is coming together. Much more soon. Make sure to shop this look below!

WSP x Uber II by Brandon Bryant

Hey guys hope all is well. Recently teamed up with the folks over at Uber. Today’s post will touch on my recent pre-Christmas festivities made easy by using the ride service .

Not sure if you read my previous blog with Uber but it’s a ride sharing app that lets you request a ride in over 600 cities across the globe.

In my Uber journey today I have go get all the fun ornaments for my “first” real Christmas tree experience. BTW it really makes the apartment smell amazing! I started with scheduling a ride with uber ahead of time. I tend to be pretty focused on a task and having the ability to plan ahead makes life easier.

I then head to Target to get all of my supplies for wrapping presents and decorating the tree. After picking up everything on my list I decided to grab a few last minute presents to friends and grabbed a Uber gift card on the way out of the store.

Finally, headed back home to put of the tree and wrap presents!
