Disco Valante Clothing is insistent on a man’s ability to believe in himself. Robert Frost, wrote a killer poem, The Road Not Taken, about trusting one’s own intuition in the the face of uncertainty. My clothing label is my personal road not taken. Leaving a successful military career and dumping every dollar I have into my dream (and borrowing even more) is not an easy thing. Perhaps Robert’s words can help you too.
“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
