How to Build an Empire 

By Genet Lakew

It’s hard to reminiscence on the 90s without remembering For Us By Us (FUBU), a staple of the era’s fashion and hip-hop landscape. A creation of four childhood friends, FUBU’s transformation into a multimillion dollar empire was no small feat. The group started out small and humble, running a factory out of a house in Queens, New York. Soon enough though, high profile celebrities from LL Cool J and Nas to Mary J. Blige and Diddy were spotted wearing the clothes, contributing to its meteoric rise.

But don’t take our word for it. This summer, you’ll have a chance to meet two of its co-founders: J. Alexander Martin and Carl Brown. Martin is an inspiration to those who have several dreams and passions and callings. The renaissance man runs a clothing company, nonprofit organization, consulting firm, and is author of a new book, Money Makes Me Crazy.

Hear real insight into what it takes to build a company to great heights and get candid advice on the journey. The business moguls will delve into the ups and downs of the business world, which could save you lots of time and headaches down the road as you create your own empire.
