Employee vs Employer - What say you?

August 26, 2018


*Confession is good for the soul.

I woke up with a burning sensation in my heart. The voice was so clear. And my actions must be 10xs greater.

How it all started:
My plan was 2 kids by age 25 and my own business by age 40. I did not factor in legacy building and how to teach my kids to be bosses instead of workers. I figured they would just get it naturally. 🤔

Where did I go wrong:
I have failed my children. Yes, we are okay- but we are supposed to be GREAT. No one told me to plan for my children's future. No one told me to start a business early. No one told me to invest in more than a 401k plan and let my money work for me. By the time I learned this, my kids were well into adulthood. Do I feel guilty now, HELL YES! Why!?

Instead, of knowing the rules of money, I was told to work- work- work and be the BEST employee I could be. Go to school and get a degree.
After it was all said and done, I reached the high positions, worked night and day, missed out on family time and what do I have to show for it!?

Reality is:
I have over 50 thousand dollars in student loan *debt*, two kids in college working their asses off to make it in this world, and I'm seeing that same cycle I lived all those years ago about to be replayed before my eyes...

Not on my watch! I refuse to sit back and watch my babies struggle (no matter how old they get, they will always be my babies). I hate the thought of them going to work being good enough to get paid what the boss wants to pay- when they are GREAT enough to receive what they are worth!

I tell myself that I'm done trying to save the world. I have to save my own first! But the reality is, my children live in this world and they are the next generation. We as parents need to step up and TEACH our children about the power of Entrepreneurship. Even if you don't believe in it, do your child a favor, do not let your biases influence your decision. Do the research and don't just throw them out to wolves half informed.

When it's all said and done, if you commit to starting the conversations now, you will know you have done the best to ensure a stable future for your children later! 

Now What:
If you are still fortunate enough to have school aged children, start planning now by making family dinner a little more than screen free time. Let's talk about their future! 
A few simple questions can open the door to Entrepreneurial exploration. 
*Do you have any hobbies?
*What are they?
* Why do you enjoy doing that?
*Can you see yourself making money doing that as an adult? 

Try it and share your outcomes! 

 

Belly Fat Blues

August 20, 2018

Did you know a fat belly is a physical sign that something is going wrong inside your body?
Chronic stress is a primary cause of belly fat gain. Stress can also lead to many health issues. 

I'll share two products that have worked wonders for me. The first is a two-day herbal cleanse.  


When you begin to notice stubborn fat that won't go away, it may be time for a gentle cleanse. This cleanse is focused on removing the intestinal sludge that can make you feel super sluggish, give you a pooch in ...

Deportation of Military Veteran Spouse

August 3, 2018


If you ask a person about their citizenship and they say, "I had been a student in Memphis Tennessee for a short time" where in that statement did they say, "I am an American citizen?" If border officials "apparently thought the person was falsely claiming to be an American citizen," is that misinterpretation of intent on the person or the border officials? 

You have made a life in the United States. Your spouse is a part of the United Stated Military and they have fought for our freedoms ever...

Indeed, This is It!!!

July 3, 2018
So, 
We were driving the other day and saw the sign from the highway. This Is It! With full excitement, we get off and make our way to this place. We pull into the parking lot and I see these gorgeous lion statues. I love lions, so I was immediately intrigued. This building is larger than I have been accustom to seeing for a soul food spot, and I'll admit, I was a little intimidated by the food selection. Here's the problem. I am currently working on a vegetarian lifestyle. When I walked in, a...

A Different type of Mac Attack

July 3, 2018
Mac's is simply fabulous! This restaurant is ideal for professionals that have very little time to wait, but want something more than fast food. When you walk in, you're greeted with good old "Southern Hospitality" upbeat personalities and huge smiles which makes you feel welcomed. Roomy booths and cozy tables are available for seating. However, if you want to kick back after a long day at the office, grab a seat at the bar and make a new friend! 



I ordered the pulled pork sandwich with mac n ...

Wing- Fling!

July 3, 2018
YES!

The time is now 5:00pm. You have put in your eight hours at the office and the last thing you want to do is go home and cook. Well, guess what?! Tom Dick & Hanks in Atlanta Georgia is my recommended after work escape. Their happy hour prices are sure to please the wallet and their BBQ Dry Rubbed Wings will delight your senses.

I am still trying to find the words to describe that flavourful basket of wings. The seasoning was perfect, the crunch of the wings were amazing and the amount of wi...

The Black Agenda

June 21, 2018
Yes, Black Lives Matter. Yes, Blacks are not treated equally. Yes, Black children are separated from their families daily. And Yes, it appears that nobody cares.

Would you like to know why the so called black power movement continues to throw Black issues at the forefront of every debate that hits the news? In my opinion, it's because they get a hard on from drama. Any time a person of any race can not see past their own pain long enough to feel the pain of someone else, that person is insp...

Bullies with Badges

June 21, 2018
Summer is supposed to be a happy time. But, I can't help but be in my feelings about the state of America and its lack of progress since the 60's. Why is it that Malcom X said the exact same thing about police that is still happening today?
What are we doing wrong as a nation that ALL human life is NOT valued the same?
We are going into 2019 and the same issues that our ancestors had to deal with is still alive!?

IT IS TIME FOR CHANGE! WILL YOU MOVE WHEN ITS YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER LAYING DEAD ...

Today there are more and more young people falling in love. As adults, we call it puppy love. As a teen, they call it their life.

Trayvon Martin

March 27, 2012
This will be my last entry for the Trayvon Martin Case. I am disappointed that another young life had to be taken. The circumstances are unknown by us. The only three people that know what happened at that time is Trayvon, Mr. Zimmerman and God! At this point, all we can do is pray for the TRUTH to come out sooner than later. 

My concern is the fact that children are dying every day. We should not just come together when someone is killed, but we need to come together to keep these young peop...
