Perspective...

It's funny when you post something about working hard or making some money on social media and a couple of random trolls will say things like "life's about more than making money", or "spending time with family and creating memories is what life is really all about"..."money is the root of all evil".....or my all time favorite "You know its harder for a rich man to get into heaven than a camel through the eye of a needle!" Funny thing is they're usually the first ones asking to hold a little something! 


Let's get right to it. We have to change our perspectives about work and money. I think it's foolish to act like we don't need it one second and have to scrape it up the next. It doesn't make sense to condemn money and work as evil when you need it pay your bills. Let's not pretend a few extra zeros in your bank account right now could solve a couple of problems for you. Our relationship with these two concepts will shape a lot of what we do and see on a daily basis.

Working hard is a GOOD thing, especially if you're working hard at the right things! Money is an idea related to resources. Let's be real. Who doesn't want to have more resources? I thought so.

When did we become so politically correct that it becomes a negative thing to say you want to work hard in order to make enough money to live your dreams? Nobody is saying not to live life to the fullest or make your family a priority, but I believe that is your personal responsibility to become successful in all areas of your life........ including your finances. Being broke sucks...I know, I've been broke and I've been well off and I'll take well off any day the week....and twice on Sunday !  

You want to just "get by?"…  You want to be average?… You want to vacation every three years at the cheapest motel available? 

Go for it! 

 but that's not the lifestyle I want for me and my family.

They deserve the best...and so do you. 

I hope you can see it. Most of all, I hope you'll work for it. 

To your dreams.

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!
