4 things you need to know about supplements..




The supplement business is certainly growing and will continue to grow into the future. With that said, there's a lot of fluff and hype going around right now. This is my attempt at cutting through the bull and giving you what you need to know. 

Health supplements can be substances you eat or drink. They can be vitamins, minerals, herbs, or different combinations of these. They can be in pill, capsule, tablet, or liquid form. Most people take them for health-related reasons. Some take them for show. Whatever your reason, check this out. I recently read an article that said about 50% of the country supplements; if you're one of these here are a couple of things to consider.

1. All health supplements are NOT created equal.

Health supplements are NOT all made the same way. That sounds simple, but most people don't realize that. Also, concentrations and quality of said vitamin and/or mineral can vary from supplement to supplement. When you're considering choosing one, read the labels so you can compare 'apples to apples.' I'll talk about checking your labels a few times in this article, it's THAT important.

2. You get what you pay for.

If you're taking vitamins because your mother said so, skip this section. If you're supplementing for a purpose, I'd suggest you look at it as an investment in your health. YES, there are probably $1 supplements at your local discount store, but they may not get you closer to your desired result efficiently. Often, supplement manufactures put JUST enough of a specific vitamin in the supplement to have it on the label. CHECK YOUR LABELS! Do your homework. Figure out what concentrations you need for optimum results and figure out what types of supplements will benefit you.

3. They are NOT a substitute for a healthy diet

Supplements are designed to bridge the gap between what you're eating and what you NEED to be eating. It's kind of difficult to get all of the nutrition you need from your diet, especially if you're on the go and not eating properly. Supplementing does NOT give you a pass to disrespect your body, and you cannot live on supplements alone. 

4. There is NO MAGIC PILL

There's nothing MAGIC about supplements. Most of the time they're merely substances you already get from food, this is just more of them in a convenient way. They can definitely help you get your desired results if used properly, but magic? No way. In fact, supplements need your cooperation to work. If you're taking 3908309854 fat burners and eating 3 pizzas and drinking a milkshake for dinner, your fat burners might be ineffective. Another idea to keep in mind. If the claims sound too good to be true, it probably is.

 Be well, and live better.

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!
