Bryon Allen has 3 rules in business: “Don’t let anyone come between you and the customer. Don’t run out of money. And don’t break rules #2 and #3.” But he didn’t know these rules when he got started. He says people weren’t betting on the young black boy born in Detroit… in the 60’s… to a 17-year-old teenage mother. But he defied the odds. And found his passion early on (age 12). This episode walks you through Byron’s success from comedian to writer to TV producer and distributor… all the way up to the top. Now, he owns “Entertainment Studios,” (the TV production company he started at his kitchen table). This is the story of someone who decides to make history.
