Doing The Work ft. Chris Colbert – PB 200
Chris Colbert began his career in audio production as an intern and consultant for Sirius Satellite Radio (now SiriusXM Radio). While simultaneously earning his degree from Seton Hall University, Chris helped create Oscar and Grammy award winner Jamie Foxx’s comedy and music channel “The Foxxhole.”
He founded DCP Entertainment, a destination for the underrepresented voice because of his passion for connecting audiences with innovative and inspiring content.
Chris joins me on the show to discuss why he was moved to start DCP Entertainment, why he’s so committed to representing marginalized communities and having underrepresented conversations that focus on themes such as mental health and overcoming adversity.
He shares his experience of climbing the corporate ladder and how he saw his progress as a way to raise others from minority groups with him, by ensuring they had opportunities too. Chris also shares why he has a variety of people in his life portfolio supporting him and keeping him on track with his goals.
“You want to be running to something; you don’t be running away from something.” – Chris Colbert
