Failure is n't something you associate with music mogul, entrepreneur, and Philanthropies Percy Master P Miller. The iconic rapper and businessman has been a model of success for decades, but one message Miller wants to give to people who are following their dreams: Success does not come overnight and failure is not the end.
I think people have to realize that failure is not the end, and you can learn from failure. Success does n't happen overnight; consistency is the key to success, Miller said on Yahoo Finance Live. Miller is celebrating the 100th episode of his YouTube series Master P Reviews.
The series features Miller trying out products from various businesses across the United States. These people that have their own businesses that we are shining a spotlight on- on the Master P Review show we 're seeing amazing companies that are growing.
It is all about economic empowerment living authentically gets you to your dreams today. Miller tells Yahoo Finance that the people featured on Miller's review series are ordinary people who have taken a chance, often making products from their own homes and garages.
Miller says that a big part of what he does revolves around culture and education. I 'm more about educating the people in the community to put money back into the community, and getting products on shelves, acquiring minority-owned business and brands on those grocery shelves to be able to sell products.
One of the products Miller highlighted was Philadelphia-based juice company Dillonades, which was started by a single mom and her 12 year old son Dillon, the brand's namesake.
When it comes to supporting the next generation, Miller stresses the importance of college education.
We need to make sure our kids go to college, Miller said; What I do with entrepreneurship, with minority-owned businesses, is all about keeping our kids out of prison and sending them to college.
I want to see a lot of these kids, you know, come back and experience college because you 're never going to get that time back. Reggie Wade is a writer for Yahoo Finance. Follow him on Twitter at ReggieWade.
