018 Tell It Like It Is
We don't like to talk about money! That's a fact. We either front like we have more than what we got, or constantly preach about how broke we are. This year we put an end to both of those narratives. It's time to tell it like it is.

011 New Era Old Excuses

010 Money Motivated
Although we'd like to believe we are motivated by more money, the reality is we are generally scared of money, and it certainly doesn't light a fire under our butts. Whether we desire more money and a better lifestyle or we are trying to avoid a financial bump in the road, money just doesn't push us to be our best selves. Before 2018 ends, it's time to get Money Motivated.

005 Stretching our Tolerance to Risk
Blacks in Amerikkka and across the Diaspora are certainly no stranger to danger. Is our perilous past responsible for our present-day low tolerance for risk? Or does the responsibility to explore more efficient paths to wealth rest on our shoulders?

004 If You Don't Want Black Folks to Know, Hide it in a Book
Today, information is more widely available than ever before. Everything from online classes to one on one coaching exsist to teach us anything we want to, or need to know.
