TheBOSSNetwork: What were some obstacles that you faced in the beginning process of starting your business or career?
Tina Brown: Obtaining enough capital to start up a business was very challenging to me. Obtaining a small business loan was not an option because initially, I did not have a track record.I ended funding the business with my personal assets.
BN: What inspired you to break into your particular industry?
TB: I volunteered to work with the American Black Film Festival for a couple of years in Miami Florida. I found that I was really excited and inspired in the planning involved in making an event come alive.
BN: How do you balance your personal and professional life or have you been able to find a balance?
TB: It's complicated because my personal life is very entwined with my business. Also, my children are all adults so having to balance life and home was not hard as it would have been when my children were young.
BN: What is an inspirational quote that you live by?
TB: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’” Jeremiah 29:11
