Excuses




My old football coach would say "Excuses are like assholes, they all stink and everybody has one."

I loathe excuses. 

I hate everything about them. 

I'm not sure if it's because of my upbringing, or because of the weakness of the concept, but at any rate...they disgust me and should disgust you as well. 

Robert Kiyosaki says "If you want to be rich don't give yourself the luxury of excuses." 

I'd like to rephrase and remix. You can make money or excuses, but you can't do both. This is applicable to more than just income. If you want to really accomplish anything in life, don't give yourself the luxury of excuses. 


In order to succeed, you must stop allowing your excuses and stories to be bigger than your goals and dreams.

Stop waiting to build your dreams. They are inside of you, crying to get out! 


Take action! 


Timing will never truly be right to make your move.  If you look hard enough for an excuse, you'll certainly find one.  Some may be genuine, but where there's a will there's always a way! 


If you wait until you have every piece of the puzzle figured out before you act, you'll miss out on your entire journey. Don't get caught in the waiting game and in telling yourself stories about when this or that happens that you'll be ready to make progress. Those are just purposeless self talks that will leave you with nothing but cool could-be stories. You'll regret not taking action sooner.


Go get your blessings! No excuses! 


I'll conclude with this short poem. 


Excuses are tools of the incompetent
which create monuments
of nothingness.
Those who specialize in them
are seldom good in anything…. -

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!
