Jobs on Jobs on Jobs!

I aint gonna lie...when I hear people say they have 2-3 jobs its like nails screeching on a chalkboard! 

The shit literally hurts my ears!

but I've evolved in my personal growth, so I don't say anything....

but to me...TWO jobs are for TWO people! 

Don't get me wrong, I totally respect people doing what they have to do to get ends to meet. 

I admire their ambitions to provide for their families by any means possible. 

I love the drive that they have to do the things they don't want to do to get where they want to be.

BUTTTTTTT

That shit doesn't make ANY sense if you ACTUALLY think about it! 

By nature, with your skill sets, if a job isn't providing you the lifestyle you need or want...what would adding a second (often part time for less money and less benefits..if they exist) give you that the first (often full-time for more money with benefits) couldn't? 

Follow me on this thought process. 

Wouldn't you agree that your job not providing enough income for you is a problem

I think most would. 

Even though most people would, what do most people do next?

 Go get another job. 

Basically that would be getting more of the problem that has them in this position in the first place...no? 

In essence, the job isn't providing what I need so I'm going to get one or two more lesser versions of the thing that has me fiscally unfit to solve that problem. 

Einstein said it best...

“We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them”

That's like wanting to lose weight and eating three meals at a time instead of three meals in a day. If that's your thing, go for it, but know that you're fighting an uphill battle in a system that just doesn't work for most people. There has to be more to your life than working jobs just to make money to work more jobs. 

Are you working to live, or living to work? 

What are your thoughts? 

I'd love to hear from you

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!
