As the founder of Dagga Sous, I have experienced going fast and being alone but in this phase of my journey, I began to feel a overwhelming need to build a relational team around my conviction to “ live my best life.” The first challenge I faced was “creating space” for my dream to exist. It doesn’t take long to realize how difficult it is to create that space in an interconnected, highly programmable, information and data overloaded universe.
My new team started with a simple concept suggested from a close friend that seemed to fit me very well; “WhoWhatWayne.” By definition the name was a perfect lead in to who I was, what I wanted to do and the adventure I wanted to live. This was decided upon quickly and clearly pronounced through our introduction to my original website.
WhoWhatWayne.com is the exploration of Creative Catalyst and Brand Hunter, Wayne A. Headley. As a fashion pioneer who has directed fashion ventures for over 40 years, Wayne carries extensive experience in international imports, brand management, marketing, retail sales and event production. Wayne's latest endeavor involves introducing international brands into the North American market.
As my mother was so fond of saying to me as a young man, “The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray.” My mother is a wise soul full of encouragement, wisdom and a powerful faith that has always been a reliable source of life to draw from. She modeled a steadfast resolve in her life and giving up under pressure was not an option for her. So when we discovered WhoWhatWayne overlapped part of our name with another brand, her words reverberated in my mind and it became obvious we had to find another way forward. That led to “Dagga Sous,” a name with a very personal family history and the only possible alternative for our little adventure, that now seemed impossible to do alone.
"If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."
The internet offers us a level of opportunity that was almost unimaginable to previous generations. Technology has produced online platforms with catalytic environments for connecting individuals. People with common interests and creative giftings are drawn to places where they can share their discoveries without geographical restrictions or cultural barriers. Attracted by a sense of adventure, entire networks have formed through burgeoning friendships and developed into full-fledged communities. If we discover the true value of deep relationships through the shared wisdom of our human experiences, we will all discover the secret sauce in life, and that is Dagga Sous.
Dagga Sous is a new term to many of you. It has both a literal definition and a deeper meaning to our immediate family. Dagga Sous is a made-up word introduced by my youngest daughter, to articulate the excitement she felt when discovering something new and so cool it could only be described as "Dope Sauce". My oldest daughter believed it went beyond our North American context and translated it into another language based on both of their travel experiences while visiting a relative in South Africa. She encouraged us to make the term an even deeper part of our family vernacular by translating the term into Afrikaans... and thus, Dagga Sous was born. Dagga Sous: Dagga ("Dope", meaning ultra-Cool or awesome), ("Sous" pronounced sauce, refers to the “secret sauce,” created by pure joy, the rare or essential oil which can only be produced by meaningful relational connections rooted and grounded in love.
We believe Artphere is one of those unique stories that we look forward to unpacking and unfolding in this relational journey with you (whether a customer, boutique store owner or an inquisitor) along with other products, people and places that are creative influences or circumstances that inspire us to greater creativity in both life and style. We look forward to revealing the secret sauce behind Artphere which will bring a much greater value to the things we purchase or the experiences we enjoy on our relational journey through life.
