It didn't happen to you

We all experience situations that leave us at our wit's end.

 If you haven't, life has a way of humbling you from time to time. Look forward to it. I'm not trying to scare you here, this is just part of the process. The process of your life's plan unfolding. The process of you becoming better. The process of you overcoming.

Thing is, troubles and circumstances you experience are part of your plan. These situations are in place to create in you a spirit of perseverance and unshakable faith. We aren't certain of what our plans contain, but we can be certain that our life's plan will be prosperous. If you carry that thought process a little farther, every situation is helping you get closer to prospering. One of my favorite authors wrote "In every adversity, there's a seed of equal or greater benefit." Every circumstance, good or bad, is there for you to benefit from. 

In adversity, it's easy to get overwhelmed with emotion and temporary defeat. It's easy to ask "why me?" instead of "why not me?" It easy to give an excuse instead of continuing to pursue your passion. It's easy to stay down if you've fallen. There is an easy way out, but you don't take the easy way out. You scratch and claw until you've accomplished what you set out for. 

It's not over until you win. 

In all things give thanks. 

It didn't happen to you, it happened for you..

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!
