Think you're pretty tough?



Think you're pretty tough? 

Try starting and running your own business.... AND actually living off of the proceeds. Then, make it past two years. After that, three, then ten....

 We'll see how tough you are then. 

Imagine doing what you do for a living now, for yourself, with your own money.

Facts are facts. Most won't make it their first year, they'll run back home to mommy or a cubicle. Whichever comes first.         

Don't read me wrong, this won't be a bashing blog.  I'm not talking down to anyone, I'm talking up the real deal soldiers. Soldiers you say Meek? Yes SOLDIERS, because business is a fight! The fight of your life! 

Business owners build their dreams and provide opportunity to others. Keep in mind, all of this is in addition to overcoming the same struggles everyone else has also, tis life.  

Business owners tend to wear many hats, this week our hats are off to you. The economy tries to crush you and depend on you at the same time. You don't get enough credit. You don't have business hours, you have  business. You're the backbone of this country. You dream, you struggle, work, and eventually you get the victory. 

I hope this inspires you to look at small business guys and gals as the warriors they are. Salute to all the owners and owners to be on this National Small Business Week and every other week! 

The best has yet to come!

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!
