My Brush with Royalty: Queen Latifah

My Brush with Royalty: Queen Latifah

Queen Latifah!

Hip Hop Icon. Movie Star. Television Star. Fashion Model. Songwriter. Producer. Entrepreneurial Genius!? YES!

Dana Elaine Owens, her given name, is co-owner of Flavor Unit Entertainment, a firm that includes television and film production units, a record label and an artist management company. She has been managing herself since age 21 and within 2 years of starting her business, had signed over 17 rap groups including the hugely successful Naughty by Nature and Outkast. “Her first investment was in a delicatessen and a video store on the ground floor of the apartment she was living in at the time.” With her background, you can now see why I was really excited to see her on the main stage at the AT&T Business Summit with AT&T Communications CEO John Donovan.

Visit the AT&T Business Insights page to see her on stage and read more about my “Brush with Royalty” and how Queen Latifah’s journey as a small business owner should inspire us all.
