Natasha posted this quote from my Black Woman Millionaire book and it made my heart smile. Having our own money is spitting in the face of history.
Wealth = Freedom.
Every movement, dream, cause needs to be financed.
Having our OWN money empowers our stand for freedom, safety, and justice. Donations are just as important as marches.
Somebody has to write the check. To fund campaigns, pay for grassroots organizations to thrive, to buy ads to get in front of potential voters. When it comes to social change, money matters.
When you learn how to bring in money from what you know instead of what you do, YOU can write the check. With a whole lot of zeros.
The good news is it’s learnable. And easier than you think. We use to BE the capitol that financed democracy. Juneteenth is the day that serves as a reminder that we are no longer working for free.
Juneteenth is our Independence Day.
