Shoot the damn ball!

Shoot the damn ball!



I love to shoot basketball for recreation. Yea, your boy can hoop a little ( just a little). I honestly don't care who I play with, or what type of team I'm on (within reason). I just like to play. It's pretty good cardio and there are always some good laughs. As competitive as I am, I don't even care about losing "pick up ball."

If there is one thing about "pick up ball" that cooks my grits, it's playing with someone who constantly hesitates shooting the ball! Shoot it! SOOOOO WHATTT if you miss it! If it's a good shot, TAKE IT! If you're open, TAKE IT! I'm never mad at a someone taking a GOOD shot. "Air ball" it! who cares? Just take the shot!

and he's back..

What do they do though? They sit there wallowing in their indecision and wait for the defender to come and block, steal, and/or defend their shot. Make a decision and go for it! You're going to make some shots, and you're going to miss some shots. That's the summary of every basketball player's career.

We've all seen this before. If not on the court, in life. People have a chance, and wallow in their indecision. The "I'm not sure" mentality makes me want to stomp on baby chickens!!! Grow some damn balls and make a decision! Ever heard the expression "Crap or get off of the pot?"

Fact is, some want to make it, and some don't. Figure out which side you're on and move forward. If you do want to make it, GO FOR IT! Whatever it is, go for it! Do it with all your might! A half assed try leads to a whole ass failure.

Let's get to work..

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!
