An entrepreneur is a fighter





A lot of people are throwing around the term entrepreneur but don't really know what it means. 


I get it. Entrepreneurs seem to have amazing lives. No boss, lots of money, freedom, autonomy, big spirits, and pretty much get to do what they want to do all day and get paid for it.You get to be in charge and make the most important decisions. It costs to be the boss and it sounds good to say you've paid it...



That's just the glamorous side of it. The reality of it is, an entrepreneur has to build anything they want to call their dream. If you've ever tried to start and run a businesses, or even just one business you'll know there's an ugly side.The side that most people can't endure or deal with. The side that will make you quit and run home to mommy corporate America faster than you can spell BOSS! 

Entrepreneurship comes with its share of ups and definitely with it's share of downs. The actual working and growing of the business. The competition. The loneliness. The irregular salaries and work schedule. Your business is like a living organism. It's your baby. You can't just drop it when things don't go your way. You can't put it on the back burner. You can't just quit if things get difficult. You can make a lot of money, you can also lose a lot of money. You'll have to be self reliant. You'll have to work harder for yourself and your family than you ever worked for a job. You'll have to focus harder than you ever have before. 

An entrepreneur is a fighter. If you're not ready to grit your teeth and dig in, don't take the plunge into entrepreneurship. It's not for the faint at heart. Go get a job. Build someone else's dream if you're not ready to fight for yours. There are much easier ways to make money. 


Am I saying you can't do it or telling you not to? No way!

 I'm just telling you to get on your guard and prepare for battle if you want in! 

To your your freedom..

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!
