Are you AFRAID to be great?






We all know that woman who LOVES to cook and entertain, we tell her she should open a restaurant. She normally responds with something to the effect that she's flattered, she's thought about it, but she thinks she'll fail. 

We all know the artist who is their own worst critic. Their work is amazing but they can't see it. 

We all know the person in Corporate America who has the best business idea, but isn't quite ready to step out on faith. 

We see and walk past these people everyday. What's stopping them?

We all are born with a specific set of talents and abilities. I believe, no matter your religion, everybody was blessed with certain gifts. Chances are you believe you have certain gifts too. There's something that you're good at that others struggle with. You know that thing that people practice for years and you can make look easy? The thing that sets you apart from most people you know? Maybe there are several things that answer that question. Yea those! They may be your gifts!

Now that we've established what some of your gifts are, are you applying them? 

Our creator gives us gifts so we can affect those around us in a positive way. 

Are you affecting those around you? 

If the answer to that is 'no'...why not? 

Our gifts , with nourishment and nurturing, can affect many in our communities, cities, states, countries, and in some cases the world!


Will you practice and build your craft? 

Will you apply your gifts to change lives around you? 

Will you change the world? 

Will you be great? 

Or are you afraid?

Let's get to work..


Do you want to sell sugar water for the rest of your life, or do you want to come with me and change the world?” — What Steve Jobs

Racism and Police Brutality

I know a lot of people have racism and police brutality on their minds now more than ever. Some are complaining about it and some are  actively thinking about how to fight it. Maybe you are as well. I hope you are. All it takes for Evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.. Have you considered how to make the Black community more powerful, so we can have a stronger voice in society? Have you thought of getting into financial shape, so you have a business or generational wealth to pass on to your children? What about the Black dollar? Have you thought about ways to keep the TRILLIONS of dollars we spend every year circulating within the Black community? These are the questions I’ve been thinking about for years and here’s how I’m putting in the work to make big things happen for our communities... I teach people how to create the kind of economy that has real power in America. Because the truth is… The only color they REALLY care about is GREEN  Money can give you access, power, an

I care about you and want you to be protected

 I care about you and want you to be protected I will not mince my words here. We live in unprecedented times. I take the mission of equal justice under law VERY seriously. Quite honestly, we all know I own and operate  ShopMEEK.com  but I do not do build this business for money.  While I do like the residual income it provides, I already have enough to take care of my bills. I don't say that to impress you, I say that to impress upon you that I'm more mission driven than commission driven.  I take this very seriously and hope you do as well. When I was in my early 20s, I had a black Cadillac...vogue tires...black rag top...gold pin stripe...chrome FACTORY wheels...wooo that thing was clean.  I'm from the Eastend of Richmond. I always wanted a Cadillac. I've owned about 10...However I got pulled over and profiled once a week. It got so bad I ended up considering selling my car. I could not keep what I earned and deserved because cops decided to pull me over

Decade end....

Quick question... Have you reviewed your decade yet? I'm in the process of taking some time at the end of this year not only to look at the past year, but to review the past 10 years as the decade comes to a close. Isn't it amazing how far you've come since 2010 :) Where were you in your business in 2010? Where are you now? What did you start? What did you end? What investments did you make? What skill sets did you learn? What did you miss out on? I believe everything happens and unfolds in the way it should... I challenge you to do a personal and business audit. Decide what you want to keep...Decide what you want to discard. Decide what you want to do more of. Decide what you want to do less of.  Let's make your next move your best move and the rest of your life the best of your life....and make the beginning of this new decade one to remember!
