Your network can HELP your net worth..


Your network can HELP your net worth..



We've all heard the age old cliche "Your network is your net worth." While this sounds catchy and is an awesome concept, I believe it's highly misunderstood. I'm going to step out on a limb here and say "Your network can HELP your net worth."

Check this out..

In a time where everybody and their mother's daughter's roommate is hollering network, what actually makes your networking successful?

The simple answer: What you GIVE..

When people say your network is your networth, some people think you can get wealthy by just knowing someone. While nothing is impossible and association is powerful, this is highly unlikely. All wealth and anything longstanding comes from work and giving. This is why I say your network can HELP your net worth. Your work here is to help others, essentially giving. A lot of people have networking backwards. Here's a key, if you want your network to help you, you must contribute. What are you contributing to yours?

Networking doesn't work if you only take from it. You know that one friend who only calls when they need something? Yea? If you only take from your network, you give your partners that same exact feeling. Look for ways to help your people. You must bring something to the table if you want to sit there.

Give before you think about getting, but don't give with intentions to get. Keep all relationships mutually beneficial and develop "win-win" partnerships. People like to win. That makes networking with you attractive. These are just my humble, but I consider accurate, opinions built from what I've studied and or observed from mentorship and successful networking giants. Treat this blog like a grocery store, only take what you want off of the shelf. Let's take the title a bit further. Your network can help your net worth, if you're willing to help your network..

Give like its going out of style and build your dream team.

You can do it.

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!

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

Whats your end game?

Whats your end game?  Are you, right now, where you thought you'd always be in life? Are you close to it?  You can’t change the past.  Think of all the hours at all your jobs. And that’s put you where you are today. Were you working on building a business of your own with residual income, a business you can sell or pass down, or were you trading your time for a paycheck?  Was it worth it? Are you getting what you set out for? It’s important that we all stop and think. Are we doing something that aligns with our end game. The sad thing is that most people don’t even have an end game because they never sat down to  think about and design their perfect life and how they’ll get there. Most people spend more time planning vacations than they do planning their futures! People say we should all dream again. Sure, dreams are good to have. But most people just become dreamers. The graveyards are full of dreams that were never lived, because they never cr
