Empower, don't enable..

I'm generous. I actually enjoy giving.

I learned a long time ago that you can't even give without receiving something, even if it's just receiving the great feeling of helping another human being. I'm not saying this to brag, there's a point here. I promise. 

What are you getting at Meek?

I wrote a blog about it, wanna read it? Here it goes..

We've all heard the age old adage "Give a man to fish and you'll feed them for a day, teach them to fish and you will feed them for a lifetime." It's a proverbial saying which suggests teaching someone how to get their own is much better than just constantly giving them everything. While I don't think this text means you shouldn't give, I think it does express a point.
  
Giving the concept or thought process is much better than repeatedly giving someone a solution to their problem or solving their problems for them. Let people solve their own problems. At the end of the day, we're all adults and are responsible for our lives.We must be problem solvers, it's part of being an adult and taking responsibility. Let people fight their own battles, learn their own skills, and overcoming their own problems. It's an empowering experience. Don't enable foolishness, you'll create a mental cripple. 

I believe at times we all need a little help, but we should only help those who want to help themselves. If someone grows accustomed to things being given to them, will they ever learn to fend for themselves?

I thought you'd agree.

What you earn, you value. 

Empower, don't enable..

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
