“America’s Mom” Tabitha Brown recently inked a deal with Made with Love Media as she pursues an expansion of her film and TV business. The collaboration was announced in August 2023, and sees Stephen “Dr.” Love’s Made with Love Media be a producing partner for Tabitha Brown’s Do You Believe Enterprises.
Additionally, in his role as the producing partner, Stephen “Dr.” Love and his production company will act as the Chief Growth Officer (CGO). He will be in charge of helping Do You Believe Enterprises’ executives identify growth opportunities and spearhead strategic initiatives with a focus on growing brand partnerships.
The goal of the partnership is to “ensure the company’s scalability and amplify the impact of Brown’s inspirational brand.”
In a press statement, the social media influencer and New York Times Bestseller said, “Stephen and I have always been aligned in how we move through the world. Between his time as my manager and now, we’ve both learned and experienced so much separately that it felt like the perfect time to reunite and build something special.”
She adds that “Stephen’s natural understanding of business, passion for storytelling, and ability to identify growth opportunities will play a pivotal role in the continued success of my brand.”
On his part, Stephen Love said, “I’m proud to partner with Tab again and in a bigger capacity with more resources and experiences to amplify her vision.”
Tabs and Love are not new to each other. “Dr.” Love noted that “She believed in me from the beginning, so it’s only right that Do You Believe is the first to partner with Made with Loved Media in our new business model that builds supportive ecosystems around creatives to maximize the value of their voice.”
A Partnership Grounded on a Strong Bond
Stephen Love mentioned in his statement that this is not the first time that they are joining forces and working together. Their personal and business tie-ups began before their current success.
Speaking with Kevin Hart on the Gold Minds with Kevin Hart podcast, Tabitha explained how Stephen started managing her right after Tabitha ventured into social media influencing the veganism niche.
“He and I had tried to develop (something) maybe like a cooking show because he used to watch my (Facebook) live.”
“I called him and told him, ‘Listen. I need you to be my manager.’” However, Stephen did not take up the offer immediately. “He was like, ‘I am not a manager. I am a producer.’”
It took some persuasion by Tabitha for Stephen to get on board. She gave an assured response, saying, “You’re very smart, and I know you’re gonna figure it out.” And just like that, Tabitha and Stephen’s work relationship began.
While speaking with Kevin Hart, Tabitha confirmed that she was managed by Stephen from 2017 to 2019, a pivotal time in her career. During the two-year stint, they succeeded in doing “probably over 50 deals together.”
