Who do you listen to?

Who do you listen to?






"The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool." - William Shakespeare


First thing is first.

There's a bunch of advice every where you turn these days.

Everywhere you go there's someone who's an expert on something and wants to give you direction and tell you what to think. 

 Be careful who you counsel with!

Am I saying taking advice is bad or wrong? Absolutely not! It is advantageous to learn and benefit from others' experience, but it must be from a credible source.  Please make sure the person offering you advice is qualified to do so. Every time you take someone's advice, essentially you "buy" their life. 

Would you hire a fat personal trainer?

What about a broke financial planner? 

Would you ask a kidless person parenting advice?

Would you get an electrician to change the transmission in you car? I'll wait..

*plays Jeopardy music*

OF COURSE YOU WOULDN'T!

These are extreme examples, but that's what MANY do. 

With that said, why would you listen to unsuccessful people about success? There's nothing an unsuccessful person can tell you about success besides how NOT to get there. Why take advice from someone more messed up than you are? It seems like that's a little crass, but it's all too common. 

In essence, I'm asking you to look for the "Fruit on the the tree."

Look at the people you're getting advice from, if they're where you want to be, take it. If they aren't'T where you want to be, don't. If you remember this one thing, remember...

There are two types of people that fail, those who listen to nobody, and those who listen to everybody.

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!
