When they know they Know

Sometimes you will be confused, melanated gems, why you put yourself out there, and it seems like, people don’t feel the same way about what you do as you do. You put your all into your craft, and the people who you think would love what you do are actually the ones who fall off. It’s not that they don’t know you’re good, they just don’t want it to be you. Remember the pie I talked about in my last blog post? The white supremacy pie that makes everyone who’s not a part of that system fight for one piece? Well, it fuels insecurity and competition.

We already know the statistics, Black women start 763 businesses a day. On a whole, we have to work harder to sustain because we just don’t get the support needed to sustain. I am so happy when I see Black owned businesses because I know what it took to get there. I’m here to tell you that, if the idea was given to you, it’s because you were supposed to fulfill it. What other people say is only their input/opinion, but it is not part of your design. Even the system who rejects you, is not part of your design. Don’t you know, melanated gem, that opposition has to come when you are on the path to greatness, and it may be sad or confusing when it’s your own people, but just remember, we have a lot to do in terms of self love amongst the Black population. Our global self love was robbed from us, you achieving your gift will allow others to achieve the same.

Even though we live in a system that is built for our oppression, we should never, ever, doubt our gifts. People actually know you are good, in fact, you’ve heard it your whole life from unlikely people, you know it’s in your heart every second of the day; and although encouragement is nice, it’s not necessary when you know what you have inside of you. I’ve come to understand that on the road to greatness, opposition comes to force out the greatness in you. I also understand that in my own path, elders always encourage me and recognize the greatness in me, they always encourage me to keep going! Your encouragers are there, just keep them and ignore the rest. Any important, valid feedback will always help build up, it will never tear down.

When they know, they know; but what’s more important is that you know. You know the greatness inside of you, you know what makes you light up, so keep that, and if anyone in your life doesn’t aid in that path, unfortunately, they can go! Your work may benefit them in the long run.

Keep going, warrior, and find out more how to activate the purpose that has always been inside of you by registering for the Dear Black People™ Webinar Series today! 3 weeks and 6 classes left!

Leave Queen Harriet Tubman Alone

Let her rest, knowing that all she fought for is actually… and Black women who look like her are actually being treated… *sigh*

Ok, you know what, Black people, my beloved gems, we have to stop being so excited over mediocrity. When will we get tired? When I look at the stats and the numbers of Black women still being the highest educated and least paid, most likely to be mistreated by the healthcare system, and the most likely to be mistreated by any institution – you want me to believe that a $20 bill with the Empress Warrior Harriet Tubman will suffice? Listen, America, don’t even disrespect us, or Harriet, by continuing to mistreat the very women who look like her, and mistreating the people that she fought for. You all must be out of your minds to think that is anywhere near the fulfillment of an executive order on racial equity, anywhere near reparations, or an indication of Black Lives Matter to the masses.

Please! We cannot continue to settle when America upholds an actual system that needs to be eradicated. The very currency that represents America, represents oppression, on a mass scale. As someone else online also mentioned, all the 17 executive orders of 2021 have been targeted to eliminate very specific issues for Hispanic and Native American communities, but when it comes to us, putting our QUEEN on a $20 bill is supposed to be an effort at ending racial inequity? America, do us a favor and stop gaslighting us. As a matter of fact, I can’t tell people to stop, should I expect them to magically change after 401 years? However, I can tell us, as Black people, my beautiful gems, what we should do – we have to reject this mediocrity at all costs. Stay vigilant! Don’t be appeased by crumbs, agitate for change until we get every piece of land, food, business, t-shirt – everything we deserve! Everything made out of cotton, should be ours.

I told you all, I don’t trust president #45 or #46, and it is my right. Should I trust a man who showed us 3 times in 2020 that he doesn’t value Black people, with his words, simply because he “picked” a Black and Asian woman as his Vice President? “Pick me pick me” has to end with Black people, my beloved gems. America, don’t pick me if you’re still upholding oppression masking it as inclusion. I have been saying it for years, inclusion and diversity is a scam. Don’t be fooled by 400 year tactics, it’s all a scam!

The Key to Results is Simple! #Motivation

Hello Everyone! So by this time you all know that this week starts off the Dear Black People™ Webinar Series, and I successfully completed my first webinar class last night! Waiting on the reviews to come in! Well, many people may wonder, “what will I get out of it?” Good question!

You see, I have a history of proving people wrong, especially when it comes to the work my Black students and clients can accomplish. When other “professionals” say it can’t be done, I show them how it’s going to get done.

I will never forget, the many times, but one particular time when I proved a fellow teacher wrong about a Black student, right before her eyes. She was speechless, and had nothing to say. She said “he can’t do this, I’ve tried many times!”; and literally, 1 minute later, I showed him once, and encouraged him to independently do what she said he couldn’t do. Sure, he was labeled “mentally disabled” (ADHD), he was young – about 5 years old, and he was shy, but he felt my love! With my love, encouragement, and example; he accomplished in 1 minute what his teacher said he couldn’t do all year long.

Listen up people, in my line of work, doing what’s right doesn’t get you loved by your “professional” peers, it gets you hated. For the mere fact that I go against the grain, and the strategies set in place to make our people, Black people, fail, and I prove it wrong every. single. time – I have been outcast, hated on, and people have tried to make my life difficult, because I believe in my people, and I help them make it happen! There’s no demographic or income background that can prove me wrong. GOD always has a better plan for me. Imagine being outcast and finding out 2 weeks later that I’m going to teach in AFRICA, then in Africa, I won the hardest working teacher award, there’s a reason! The world really doesn’t want Black people to win on a global scale! They want a chosen few, but we can change that by staying on code, unifying, and teaching others how to overcome, instead of expecting them to know!

The key is? I do it from the heart! My motivation is, what God has put inside me to educate and motivate everyone in my path to their best abilities! Many people over the years have thanked me for not only building their confidence, but living it to show how it can be done! It’s not only Black people who have thanked me for showing them how to be confident, it’s people all over, from Chinese, to Muslim, to Indian, and White, but I was put on this earth to instill that confidence in Black people! We think higher, we aim higher, we do better, and not because someone let us, but because it’s in us!

I’ll never forget the day I was at a 4 month temp job & I fought for all of us to get $2 more, while coworkers were telling me, “you’re not Obama” guess what, I got us all the raise that day! Next thing, everyone was thanking me & wanted to eat lunch with me. Who was going to tell me not to fight? Not the people that were scared. When you are fearless, you are concerned about what’s right, not what’s popular, and you don’t take peoples word at face value, you find out for yourself!

Transform your mind… #DearBlackPeople

Any student that has sat before me has performed better, with more confidence.

Any client that I’ve had enters the world more confidently, accomplishing more.

I expect excellence from anyone who sits before me, and I make sure it happens.

Getting everyone results is my top concern, I don’t just say “you can do it”, I show you HOW to do it!

I’ll never forget the day I was at a 4 month temp job & I fought for all of us to get $2 more, while coworkers were telling me, “you’re not Obama” guess what, I got us all the raise that day! Next thing, everyone was thanking me & wanted to eat lunch with me. 😂

Many people over the years have thanked me for being the example of what confidence looks like, and standing up for what’s right, not popular, and encouraging them to do the same, & I want every Black person to understand their worth and purpose outside of everything we’ve ever known!!

The best part is, I’ve done the work of decolonizing my mind, myself, so I speak from a place of experience.

Through this course, you will decolonize your mind, build a legacy for your bloodline, and make systemic change. You will transform your life, and the Black Lives around you, with a decolonized mind, Dear Black People…

Join me for for the next 4 weeks!!!!!!
