Regrann from @paulcbrunson - Before Byron Allen became the sole owner of a global media empire, he was broke.
As he describes it, "my company Entertainment Studios was launched in my living room. I worked in my underwear, and I was flat broke.” His sunken level is even more meaningful when you realize this is the same Byron Allen who was a household name in entertainment and comedy throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, having launched into stardom at 17 as the youngest comedian to ever appear on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show.
Today, Allen’s content production and distribution company has more than $1 billion in assets, including the recently acquired Weather Channel.
Check out my IGTV for the full interview.
If you want to hear the top lessons I learned from Byron and ask me any questions about him, I’m doing an IG Live today at 6:30p est

Public Service Announcement
Do you have a business page here in Instagram and other social media sites?
Do you send random emails to other businesses who follow your page in the following format? "Hey there! Thanks for following us! Awesome page you have. If you are looking for a.....[Fill in the blanks], please let us know!" So the above example is not necessarily textbook spam but NEVER works and isn't the way to get people into your funnel.
Continuing to send multiple emails, when your target has not indicated that they are interested IS textbook spam and besides getting blocked, you can also get reported. Not a good look for your business.
Let your product or service speak for itself by posting valuable content. Make the content about your target audience and not all about how great your business or service is.
Regrann from @help_find_keir_and_chloe - The reward for help locating Keir Johnson and her young daughter Chloe now stands at $35,000.
Smithfield Foods announced it has contributed an additional $10,000. Keir Johnson worked at Smithfield Foods at the time of her disappearance.
"At Smithfield Foods, we consider our employees family and we have been deeply saddened by the disappearance of Keir Johnson and her daughter," said Kenneth M. Sullivan, president and chief executive officer of Smithfield Foods. "It is our hope that these additional funds will encourage someone to come forward with new information that will bring Ms. Johnson and her child home."
In September, the Newport News Police Foundation pledged to donate a $25,000 reward for reliable and new information about their whereabouts.
These rewards are separate from the Crime Line award.
Keir and Chloe were last seen together April 30, 2017 in the 1900 block of Hastings Drive in Hampton. Keir's car, a 2013 black Kia Optima was found two weeks later but neither mother nor daughter has been located. #missingpeople @congressionalblackcaucus #missing @congresswomannorton #missingperson#usa#virginiabeach#usa#keirjohnson#keirandchloe#nbcnews#cbsnews#cnn#FBI#texas#fbinorfolk#newyork#northcarolina#virginia#newportnews#newportnewspd#help#share#miami#florida#newmexico#missinginamerica#missing @missingpeopleworld @missingkids @findourmissing_nc @help_findme @_.missing._.people._ @theresacaputo @willsmith #helpus#share @help_findme @newportnewspd @missingpeopleworld #europe#helpus#california#newjersy @wtkr3 @repmaxinewaters
Why is Online Reputation Management important to you as a business owner?
Consumers are searching online for your products or services & making decisions about your business based on what they find.
If a potential customer, patient or client finds; a bad online reputation, or no online reputation because of lack of online reviews, most likely they will not do business with you but will call your competitors.
