The path less traveled


I remember, sitting there. Worn out from 21 credit hours per semester and building my business after school.

I hated school and loved business. I was in the school of business, and only two of my teachers actually had businesses. There's something about being constantly lectured to about things I'm not interested in that doesn't sit well with me. I'm not a quitter so I had to finish...but I had to finish fast!

I tried to get out in 3 years, but they wouldn't let me take this BS Strategic management class in summer school.  So I had to do one more semester with one class, another reason I LOVED school so much. (I hope you can detect that sarcasm).

Alas, I finally escaped the madness..... but what was I to do now? 

Everyone I knew encouraged me to go back to school, but I was done with that. 

After college I wanted to find my own way to freedom because school just wasn't for me anymore.

I hated being a student and I have no shame in admitting it. I wanted to do my own thing.

I always knew I wanted to make BIG money but it couldn't be the conventional corporate ladder because I was already tired of people telling me what to do.  Though I wanted to make some money, I wanted to do it on my own terms. 

Freedom to do what I wanted with my life was what I wanted more than money. This is still the case, fortunately, by grace, I don't have to choose now. 

You know how it is... you see people living the lives you dream about...

... no asking for vacation, no worrying about the stresses of making rent and car payments.I wanted to call my own shots. 

That’s all I wanted, you know... I wanted the ability to make as much money as I wanted to how I wanted to.I wanted to be my own man, my own boss. 

I didn't want some pencil pusher telling me how much money I'm worth and being so happy if they give me $40k a year. 

I am a very driven person and I knew I could make money without a Masters degree, so I started selling cars.

The money was okay, but that wasn't enough for me. I needed freedom and a legacy. 

I hated having to work 70+ hours a week to make the kind of money I wanted to. I had to find a better way. I turned to the internet. 

I don't think that is just by chance.

I began to start low cost/ low overhead businesses and marketing online.  I have spent my days researching the unconventional thinkers who saw what they wanted and went for it. I duplicated their efforts because I wanted to duplicate their success. 

I now live the life I designed. I'm not 100% where I want to be, but each day I get closer to my end goals. 

I work how and when I want to all because I work from my computer & mobile devices. I am my own boss. I believe marketing online was the single best business decision I've made. I'm amazed at people who aren't capitalizing on this trend. Do you think more or less people will shop on line next year? Exactly :)

This isn't me bragging, because I'm certainly not a big deal. This is just a small part of my story. You to can have the life you want. 

You can work WHEN you want, WHERE you want, in the way that YOU want. It's possible. I'm proof.

Your friend,

Meek

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!
