Roy Broderick Jr. and Eshena D. Roman

After working at several networks and firms, we came together and decided to create an agency that focused on multicultural businesses and brands, to increase black wealth in the world. Initially, we focused on primarily serving small to midsize businesses, now, we also work with large Fortune 100 brands who want to build authentic connections to African American and LGBTQ audiences. Read more>>

Kelly Chase

“I am grateful to money because I am able to give back to others.” I wrote this on a piece of paper when I first embarked on my entrepreneur journey.  It is my mission & responsibility to create opportunities for others, to serve & give back to others. My story can and will help others, and I will unapologetically share it; I will shamelessly pursue happiness & I will continue to ChaseLife, creating the life I crave. Read more>>

Katie Blazer

I have touched every process of design and product development and worn many hats along the way. From developing home decor product to children’s apparel, I landed in women’s fashion and never looked back. I now direct the Women’s Fashion Division and am responsible for designing hundreds of SKUs each year. Read more>>

Marlaina “Marlie” Williams

I started Dangerous Woman in 2016, and I originally intended for it to be a clothing line. I tried that out for a few months and realized that while I enjoyed fashion, it wasn’t my passion or a part of my purpose. So I converted the brand into a lifestyle and entertainment brand, that promotes for and advertises to young, enterprising, and sociable women. Read more>>

Constance Payne

The acting part of the entertainment industry has been great for me because for once in my life my feelings are celebrated & encouraged. I was always told I was “crazy” for having strong feelings and standing up for myself in the male-dominated industries I’ve previously worked. What I’ve come to find throughout the years is that there is something wrong with people who only care about their own feelings, and lack empathy for others. Read more>>

Kourtney Jorge

On February 15, 2017, my life changed forever. I went from my everyday routine to a viral sensation and influencer – overnight. I gained notoriety with the release of the Condé Nast produced “Broken” video from their web series ‘The Scene’. The video, nicknamed #HurtBae amassed more than 50 million views worldwide across a variety of social platforms. It felt like everyone in the world knew about my relationship or lack thereof, people would often stop me in the street, on the subway (as I lived in NYC at the time), and even at work and continue to do so to this day. Read more>>

Jazz Kelley

I started playing drums when I was about five years old. I started out in a small southern church called Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Carrollton, Georgia. My story is interesting because I started out telling people I could play the drums and in reality had NEVER touched a drum in my life. It all began when I saw my cousin do a simple beat after choir rehearsal on Saturday and I said to myself I can do that! Well, that stuck with me. From that point on, I was going around telling everyone I knew I could play drums! My parents thought I was insane and insisted I stop telling lies. Read more>>

Adjai Howard

My grandfather taught me everything I know with a camera. He has been shooting since I was younger and as I got older start to get a love for it. Practice helped me to get where I am today and constant work. Meeting people who could teach me more and I had to be willing to learn. It’s been plenty of struggles been photography and a female photographer at that. Its the man who want to flirt and not take your craft seriously. Credit you deserved not being awarded due to you being a woman. Challenges of learning how to handle your business without fail. Being strict about prices and rules. Everyone wants to be a “celebrity” but not pay to look like one. Read more>>

Lamar Styles

My story is typical. I grew up rough, made it out the slums, blah blah, ok, fast forward though. I’m extremely interested in music, film, fashion, & architecture, those are the things I want to do in life. The goal is to get platinum plaques, Grammys, Oscars, act in movies/tv shows, direct movies/tv shows, design clothes, creative direction, styling, etc… I have accomplished some small things though modeled for brands and stuff, been on the radio and have been slowly gaining a lil falling for my music out here. Been working on films and stuff as well. Read more>>

Charlie T Thomas

I’m one of those “majored in one thing originally, then ended up a theater major” kids. I loved the feeling of being on stage AND living many different lives. I also loved the sense of family that comes with theater. So, I spent the majority of my college career doing that, and then several years of community theater afterwards. A few years back, I decided to move to Atlanta and start my professional acting career. The first YEAR was fruitless–I had three auditions, all of which were less than stellar. Read more>>
