If I am the only millionaire in my family, I am broke.
If I am the only millionaire in my community, I am poor.
If I am the only millionaire at “The Table” I am powerless to affect change.
My solution: Make. More. Black. Women, Millionaires.
We will NEVER be free as a People
until we heal and have our own money.
To fund our own dreams.
Our OWN institutions.
Our OWN political super PACs.
I’m on a mission from God.
Dr. King organized every dimension of his life for equality for all—
Like Yahweh organized every aspect of his existence to fulfill the Law—
I give my life to this Call:
The emotional freedom
and economic affluence of Black People
Starting at home.
With my Sister Entrepreneurs.
Because we MOVE things.
We walk in our OWN authority as the embodiment of God.
We’re tired of waiting for justice, fair shots, support, and/or access.
We are DONE with hope, social niceties, and the illusion of “equality.”
We are not afraid to bet on ourselves.
We invest in ourselves, gladly.
We put our money “in” us not “on” us.
As an act of rebellion.
We put in the internal work
to stop slaving and start soaring
in ALL areas of our lives.
We heal to transform the historical and economic trajectory of our bloodline.
To all the condescending gatekeepers—
Toxic masculinity narcissists
White privileged connoisseurs—
Oppression masquerading as “inclusion,”
hear us loud and clear:
We. Don’t. Need. You.
We are DONE playing your “validation”
“hurry up and wait,” and
“let’s work together” games—
Only to turn Us into your emotional and economic workhorse.
Playtime is over.
WALK WITH ME FOR A MOMENT AND IMAGINE…
Black girls knowing they are worth more than what’s in between their legs…
Black boys railroaded into STEM instead of the prison pipeline by the 3rd grade.
The broken trust between Black Women and Men healed so our families stop being a bed of violence and become our safe haven…
Black Men monetizing their ingenuity instead acting out the historical violence that was acted out on them…
Black Women being so safe we relax into our femininity without giving up our power, which we gracious move effortlessly between the two.
We lend instead of borrow…
We monetize our “knowledge” instead of our “time or skilled labor”…
We no longer living for instant gratification
but bask in the fulfillment of delayed satisfaction.
We no longer need to fight through gatekeepers, glass ceilings, or brick walls of invisible social roadblocks because we have OUR OWN…
We stop being the “cars” of culture and
start OWNING the “highways” that our cultural currency moves on.
We ENSURE effortless wealth for the next 10 generations created in the next 3-5 years, with ease…
We live our legacy now…
We cultivate and relish empowering empathetic relationships where love, accountability, and grace are our norm…
OUR wholeness heals the human race.
The Dalai Lama said it will be the Western woman who saves the world.
I say it will be the:
Financially Free Black Woman who transforms it.
Sis, that woman, is You.
