Tyler Perry‘s participation comes on the heels of Earn Your Leisure and Steve Harvey announcing they’ve become partners in Invest Fest 2022. “Steve called Tyler and told him the importance of our work,” said Rashad Bilal. “When Steve asked him to come to Invest Fest, he accepted immediately. Mr. Perry will be going over his billion dollar business empire and how he maintains his independence.”
“People have got to start investing in themselves,” Steve Harvey says. “When you go to Invest Fest, you invest in yourself. Why would you not do that?” He especially encourages people to go without preconceptions. “Be open to learn everything that will be poured into you. Stay open-minded. The majority of things that have happened to me have happened in ways I didn’t see coming, but I was open to it.”
Based on the hugely successful Earn Your Leisure podcast, Invest Fest 2022 is equal parts education and entertainment. Attendees will gain access to the vendor marketplace, immersive activities based on finance, and panel discussions as well as food trucks and live music performances. Additionally, major celebrities and entrepreneurs will share their inspiring stories in live fireside chats and panel discussions.
