Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Reggie Haynes, Founder of The RHTV Network, based in London, UK.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
My business is my online television network, where I try to represent African/Black Empowerment, Unity, and Truth everywhere possible. My Network features my television show titled: The House of Reggie’s Tv Show, and it is pay-per-view based. I also charge people under £5 to have their site featured on my platform.
Tell us about yourself
I saw how dark the entertainment industry is, and I told myself that I wanted to create my own platform and also give the Melanated and African people a source to call home.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Not making a big profit at all while running this business for two-plus years and never selling my soul in the process, basically staying committed to the cause no matter what.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Attracting people who are committed to mainstream media to support my brand consistently.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Have a full detailed plan and an unlimited amount of backups just in case all else fails.
- Stay positive and uplifted no matter what.
- Be yourself and stick to what your cause is, no matter what.
