Lamar Tyler is passionate about two things: growing black families and growing black businesses. He started the blog, Black and Married with Kids, with his wife Ronnie, to promote positive images of black families. Black and Married with Kids is now an international brand with over 500,000 Facebook fans.
Lamar also owns Tyler New Media, the film producing arm of the business that has independently produced four films, one of which is Generational One: The Search for Black Wealth and is the main topic of our conversation.
The Generation One documentary debuted in 2015 and to date, the trailer on Facebook has been shared over 49 thousand times and has been viewed over 3.2 million times.
Lamar also runs a digital marketing agency, Traffic, Sales, and Profit, that provides small businesses with solutions to improve their website traffic, increase their passive income streams, and increase their profits. Traffic Sales & Profit gives small business owners surefire systems and strategies to take their online profits to the next level. Through TSP, Lamar has taught entrepreneurs in various niches and markets how to generate profit with ease and in little time regardless of constraints.
Lamar and I discuss why they decided to focus on promoting positive images of black families, why it’s important for us to build wealth that we can pass on, and our greatest challenges as entrepreneurs.
According to Lamar, the key to success in the black community is:
- Building a network and sharing information
- Making sacrifices to create and accumulate wealth
- Creating multiple streams of income; and
- Investing in education and coaching
Lamar has been recognized by Ebony, Essence, Parent Magazine, The Washington Post, NPR and many other media outlets.
