#GoodPeople: Mickey Ashmore
Our customers are extraordinary people. Here are their stories.
Something that made founder of Sabah, Mickey Ashmore, think differently recently was his attempt to do a headstand. “I kept kicking my legs up and falling over. I was getting close, but couldn’t quite hold it. Then it hit me: what’s the method behind this madness? Slow, steady, thoughtfully, I finally got my legs up, and held the headstand. I’ve been thinking about that ever since – figuring out the method to the madness,” said Mickey.
The last time Mickey smiled so big it hurt was the other day when he looked around his office, and saw a well functioning organization full of happy, motivated, and good people. Which led us to discuss the happiness he could bring to other people: if he could give a gift to anyone, Mickey would give his parents a trip around the world.
I’ve been thinking about that ever since – figuring out the method to the madness.
Up next, we dug into his clothing preferences. “I don’t think I have any clothing I would consider ‘prized.’ With that said, I really appreciate my collection of RTH clothing, as well as my kurta by Matt Dick of Small Trade Co. I am very inspired by both of those brands and the people behind them.”
Recently, a pair of bright blue Sabahs and a mutual appreciation for each other’s work brought Mickey and one of his newest friends, George Venson of VOUTSA, together. We met at a hardware store when he commented on my blue shoes and have been working together ever since.
Finding an ultimate calm satisfaction in life… and finding one to share that with! But does that even exist?
Digging into past friendships, one of his favorite early memories with his best friends was in fourth grade. They group dialed the cute girls in their grade who were having a slumber party of their own. “I think that call ended, and we all had girlfriends. It was a group decision! How sweet,” he reminisced. Though, that relationships didn’t last. Now, Mickey is most afraid of not finding an ultimate calm satisfaction in life… and finding one to share that with! But does that even exist?
“I’m energetic, fun, very loving, and enjoy people, but I also know what’s what, and am socially aware. I also like to gather people,” he shared. So, Mickey’s spirit animal would be a very smart dog, probably a sheep dog, specifically.
And, when he dances when no one is watching, he plays Boogie Wonderland by Earth, Wind & Fire. “I wish I could say Hey Mickey but that’d be a lie,” he professed. If you want to say hey to Mickey, find him here.
