Today we spoke with Vector 90 Employee, Garrison Gowens…

Who are you? What do you do? Where are you from?

My name is Garrison Gowens. I am from Long Beach, Ca. I am a tech entrepreneur and employee at Vector90.

What was the turning point in your career? Where were you before that?

My entire life revolved around basketball until I had an internship with Adidas in product marketing that changed the outlook on my career.

How has your life experience shaped you?

Growing up I was extremely hard headed. Thank God it allowed me to learn valuable life lessons that has pushed me to be who I am today and who I am evolving to be.

How do you practice awareness? How do you maintain your best self and manage your day to day experiences?

Most of my time is spent working. Making time to work on myself is still something that I work on improving.

What are some important issues you’d like to shed light on? How would you do it?

With social media and the world becoming smaller due to technology it has started to become even easier to be a follower. Disconnect from everything, find out who you actually are, and stay true to that forever.
