Be Poor If You Want To Knowledge Is the Key
Hi, it's your Girl JA Nursing here, a couple months ago I watched the famous interview by Damn Dash. This video is a highlight of Damn Dash's video. I celebrated my 39th birthday on September 4, 2015, and it has left me thinking about my world, my surroundings and what I can do to help complete my journey of awesomeness. As I start my new year I'll ask myself am I being pimped by my life? Weekly I will blog about financial literacy topics. Financial literacy has been something that I have struggled with throughout my life due to lack of knowledge.
Below you will find some quotes from the video. I encourage you to watch theses video.
I have always thought that socially we all have an obligation to change outcomes through our actions.
So I will ask you the question, are you being pimped by your life? if you feel stuck in your life then you have to make an adjustment.
According to Dr, Watkins he says Life is short. So, this time should be spent doing things you love with people you love and giving yourself to something greater than yourself. That’s how you can make it all worthwhile. -Dr. Boyce Watkins
Shift your life do you have options? Do you have FU money? if you don't then you may have to make a change.
This is a community discussion..... "We need a nation of Builders"
We have to resurrect the pride of building and not borrowing
Corporations were not built for us
"You can't move into someone else s house and expect to shift around the Furniture"
"You can't judge the quality of a tree by the size of the seed" every tree is going to start tiny"
The question is not to ask yourself about 2015 but to ask about 2115 what are we doing for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren
The $100 start up a book a Must read according to
Through my journey of life, I have realized that Sometimes we get caught up in the fact that a job is supposed to be given to us but we are never educated on how to create our own titles as well. This Summer my Son Anthony spent the summer at Micro Skills a community organization in Etobicoke. He was guided by my good friend Andrae Walsh who ran an Entrepreneurship youth program. We have to get connected with organizations that will help you change outcomes for your children. Thank You, Andrae
The economic philosophy of Black Nationalism only means that we have to become involved in a program of re-education to educate our people on the importance of knowing that when yous pend your dollar out of the community in which you live, the community in which you spend your money becomes richer and richer; the community out of which you take your money becomes poorer and poorer. And because these negroes, who have been misleading, misguided, are breaking their necks to take their money and spend it with The Man, The Man is becoming richer and richer, and you’re becoming poorer and poorer. And then what happens? The community in which you live becomes a slum. It becomes a ghetto. The conditions become run down. And then you have the audacity to – to complain about poor housing in a run-down community. Why you run it down yourself when you take your dollar out.
"And you and I are in a double-trap, because not only do we lose by taking our money someplace else and spending it, when we try and spend it in our own community we’re trapped because we haven’t had sense enough to set up stores and control the businesses of our community. The man who’s controlling the stores in our community is a man who doesn’t look like we do. He’s a man who doesn’t even live in the community. So you and I, even when we try and spend our money in the block where we live or the area where we live, we’re spending it with a man who, when the sun goes down, takes that basket full of money in another part of the town.https://www.facebook.com/notes/afrikan-centered-education/malcolm-x-on-the-keys-to-economic-empowerment-in-our-communities-and-what-traps-/449763491781579
