We were lucky to catch up with Dr. Gwennetta Wright and Deonta B the Ladies of GBC Media TV recently and have shared our conversation below.
Dr. Wright and Deonta B, thanks for joining us, excited to have you contributing your stories and insights. What do you think matters most in terms of achieving success?
We ruminate three things that contribute to entities of being successful. First, you must have faith in anything you do. Faith is a critical component of success. You must believe it before you can achieve it. Secondly, you must be willing to sacrifice. Everybody sacrifice is different, but you will know what is necessary to sacrifice to reach your goals. Lastly, you must be consistent. Consistency leads to results. You need to show up no matter what. If you are consistent in anything it will become a habit. To master anything in life it takes you showing up and practicing. Faith, Sacrifice and Consistency are keys to success.
Dr. Wright and Deonta B, before we move on to more of these sorts of questions, can you take some time to bring our readers up to speed on you and what you do?
We are Dr. Gwennetta Wright and Deonta B, Ladies of talk show “Gwen’s Business Corner with Deonta B and streaming channel/network GBC Media TV.” We are childhood best friends of 28 years that decided that we wanted to launch a black-owned media platform that catered to business owners and entertainment creatives 5 years ago. We are two professionals and women of color with over 30 years of combined experience in the Entertainment industry and as small business owners. Although the journey has not been easy, we have learned many powerful practices along the way to share with others in hopes our story and guest masterminds impacts industry culture in a major way.
The GBC Media multimedia platform highlights influential and celebrity interviews, pop culture news alongside special engagement and award ceremonial coverage nationally. The GBC Media Channel also garners businesses with opportunities in advertisement, exposure, and brand awareness with its viewers.

What do you think helped you build your reputation within your market?
The thing that helped us build our reputation in our market was building relationships. Because we didn’t have a huge following on social media we had to build relationships to get people to trust our brands. We also had to stay very consistent with the content we put out so that we can stay on our viewers mind.
How’d you meet your business partner?
We were only in ninth and tenth grade when we met. It is crazy pondering because God must have drafted our story then placing us both in the same cosmetology class. It all started when we had to make up business names and create our own shop station at the time. We instantly connected but it did not stop there. We ended up in the same lunch time. Gwennetta sat down at the table with Deonta and said, “Hey you remind me of myself, I want you to be my little sister.” Deonta a tom boy cheerleader and Gwen a girlie girl turned cheerleader. Two popular girls with many friends turned into the two high school thought statistics keeping each other encouraged. The trial pitfalls of a teen mom graduate and summer school graduate developed a bond with a driving force to never be reckoned. Together they vowed to prove that trials, traditional college pathway, and statistics does not define dreamers. That created two young dreaming roommates in a little house in the hood making each other’s dreams come true.
