Years ago, as president of Bronner Brothers and upscale magazine, I set a goal to become the world’s largest Christian-based company. I had no idea that I could achieve that goal by just surviving. Over the years, I have watched so many great companies go out of business or be sold to other companies. So during this Thanksgiving season, I give a heartfelt “thank you” to all of our supporters.
Upscale is proud to receive a special industry award from the American Health and Beauty Aids Institute. This award signifies our commitment to our readers. Note: I do not believe you should support a company just because it is black owned. You should support the companies that make the best products at the best prices and give the best service while working hard to support their community, and that happen to be black owned.
