Flaky people make my ass itch!

Flaky people.

Few things get under my skin more than unreliable people.

You know, those who don't follow through on what they've promised.

Or don't show up for a call or a meeting at a time you've scheduled.

I can't even begin to tell you how many times I've been stood up.

So how do you deal with such a person?

The best way is...

You DON'T!

Fuck those people! 

Hey I understand something can come up. People get busy. Emergencies happen.

And long ago I used to have a "3 strike rule" about it.

Three strikes, and you're OUT.

But I realized in the world of business, where your word is your bond, there's simply no room for people like this.

So it's become "one strike and you're out" for me.

It's just too damn much mental energy dealing with people who don't do what they say they're going to do.

Sadly, our world is FULL of them.

And if you want to build a kick-butt team of entrepreneurs, and do it with the least amount agony and frustration...

Cut people like this loose. And do it fast.

Commit to only dealing with responsible and dependable adults.

I know, they're a rare breed.

Your time is too valuable to deal with flaky people!

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!
