Justin Hudson is a Riverside native and entrepreneur. He remembers falling in love with business when he would go to work with his father during summer vacations from grade school. He started his first business in 3rd grade by selling candy after school and that eventually grew into a lawn mowing business and other ventures.

Today he is the Visionary and Founder behind a clothing brand called 1LoveIE, which is short for 1 Love Inland Empire or 1 Love In Everything. 1LoveIE currently operates two locations in the Victoria Gardens Mall and Tyler Mall. He is making it his life mission to bring awareness to the Inland Empire, while spreading peace love and unity from his community to the rest of the world.

He received his bachelor’s degree from Cal State LA and will soon be a graduate from Azusa Pacific University with his M.B.A. Justin enjoys listening to podcasts and he feels his source of inspiration comes from traveling and challenging himself to step outside of his comfort zone every day.

Justin’s entrepreneurial motto is,

“Don’t be the one digging for gold, be the one selling the shovels.”

His spiritual mantra comes from Proverbs 11:25, which states, “A generous man will prosper. He who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.
