The best compliment I've ever received..

The best compliment I've ever received..




It's funny..

Things always have a way of working out, and God always sends signs when you need them..

Not that you should ask for them. Don't worry if you do, I've done that before too. I just learned why I shouldn't the other day, but that's a blog all by itself

Moving on..

We all know God uses people, I think he used someone to send me a message the other day. I wrote a blog about it, wanna read it? Here it goes...

Someone text me "Out of the blue" ( whatever that means) and said 

"You're a very special person" 

If you know me, you know I ask lots of questions about EVERYTHING. I like for communication to be clear, and I want to be on the same page with you if we're conversing. This occasion was no different. I ask why said person thought this way. She says "the way you live."

I'm confused at this point.

At the time, I was overcoming challenges and actually having a pretty rough day. I asked her to elaborate on her comment and she said "You live the way you want to and make your own rules."

While that's a simple sentence, I got so much from it. I thanked her for her compliment and couldn't shake the thought of what she implying. Those few simple text messages meant more to me than she'll ever know. Interestingly enough, after hours of pondering, I believe I figured out what she was doing. In my slight arrogance, my first thought was "Does she want to jump my bones?" My next thought was, " Doesn't everyone do that?" Then it hit me, everyone doesn't. She was admiring my courage. My courage to set myself apart, ignore the status quo, to observe the masses and do the opposite. Thing is, I forgot all about it. I'm not sure if it was her intention, or a little encouragement from above, however this short conversation helped me remember one of my greatest strengths. To date, this is the best compliment I've ever received. 

In conclusion, be courageous. Live the way you want to live. Do, be, and have anything that you want, because you can. Make your own rules, life is more fun that way. I'm not saying it'll always be fun, but it'll sure be worth it. You're awesome. 

Hop in the driver's seat of your life.

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
