Having a closed mind .....


I pride myself on being what I consider an astute businessman.

I believe a good businessman , or a smart person, should ALWAYS keep their eyes open for opportunity. Being open minded and willing to try to position myself ahead of trends has always served me well, if not through profit definitely through experience.

I'll admit, I ALMOST blew my latest project off.

I didn't think I had time for anything else. After all I was running multiple businesses, building my portfolio, and consulting as well. It was easy for me to justify lack of time for another venture...but like Richard Branson says "'If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!'

There's never a perfect time to do anything. 

With that said, I started a new business during one of the busiest seasons of the year for me! 

With the power of the tools and system my business team, I was able to make an extra $500 my first month with only 5-10 hours! Now, $500 may not be a lot to you, but it was to me for a couple of reasons. One, it was profit!!!! As a businessman...it was significant to me because sometimes it can take 5-10 years for a business to turn a profit! With my traditional businesses it took A LOT longer to profit as they were very capital intensive up front, and there were lots of skills to learn without much support system. I had to learn my way through...thus costing me time and money. With the system and team, it was VERY different.

With a little more time and effort in my second month, I made FOUR TIMES what I did my first month. Shorty after I earned my first all expense paid trip. Now I'm working on my SECOND and within the next year I'm looking at doubling my personal income!

To think, I ALMOST blew this off. I didn't have time. I didn't REALLY need more money even though I'm enjoying the hell out of it. I had multiple passive flows. I am successful by my standards. I could have given myself every excuse not to take a look at another project...much less get started. With a little effort, I could have even justified it...but that would have blocked my next blessing.

I'm so glad I kept an open mind.

Having In this case, having a closed mind could have been REALLY expensive!

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!
