We had the good fortune of connecting with Jacob Moncrieff and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jacob, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
I’m sure this question has been on thousands of small businesses around our country over the past several months. We have been pushing day after day through a global pandemic and that definitely raises a flag to potentially throw in the towel. To know whether or not to give up you have to feel the community support and be that support for other small businesses. I have been blessed through these hard times with having an amazing community support and clients out there in the world.

What should our readers know about your business?
I have enjoyed so much of this journey over the last couple years. Seeing the progress happen right in front of your eyes and using it for motivation to push to the next limits. Sure, there’s always road bumps, but we just keep pushing over them and prevailing over each challenge we encounter. We are Sneaky Nieky Designs, and we are here to always bring you that streetwear feel with so bang to it!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
When my friends come in to town I try to show them around with all the little bits of the greater Denver area that I love. I want to show them my life and the places I love to go on the regular. Whether it be from the downtown river walk to grabbing a beer at Denver Beer Co. to dinner at Angelos in Cap Hill all in one afternoon while cruising around on the electric scooters. Or the next day taking them up on the mountain for some hiking for a few hours and then cruising on down to Idaho Springs to grab food and a drink at Tommy Knockers or Beau Jo’s. Or catching an amazing brunch at Denver Biscuit Co. followed by some arcade fun at 1-up and grabbing Chēba Hut afterwards. All these amazing places are staples to the Denver life and I highly suggest to anyone.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I have received a great support encouragement from a guy I consider my mentor in all of this, my friend Eric Meyer with The Graphic Rabbit.
