With two new shows premiering on OWN later this month its about that time for promo, huh Tyler? Tyler Perry or who I like to call “Testimony” Perry is the perfect person to deliver many different messages and I really love the one about friendship which he divulges in the most recent issue of Essence. This is definitely something that resonates with me in growing my brand, building with friends and trying to maintain it all. Listen up!:

“We both know how rare this is,” says Oprah. “Where else in the history of our African-American culture have two really, really successful people who can do whatever they want said, ‘Let’s come together and be even more powerful—let’s take it to the tenth power?’”

On mixing their friendship with business, Perry adds, “…The most important thing about coming together was making sure we would not lose our friendship because of the business. We had to establish ground rules. The main one: Both of us have to continue to live in our truth. If she doesn’t like something, say it. If I don’t like something, I’ll say it. And we’ll figure it out and keep moving on…”
