    „vow to never be poor“
    Being poor in self-esteem, confidence or anything has major impact on how we approach things.

    Sure let’s stay connected, some of my business associates and I are really working hard and for years we have contributed 2 Community programs Youth and Family development and it seems like we’re working alone we need resources, we can talk until we’re blue in the face but everything should not cost money, when we have the power within ourselves to create money but it feels like we’re working by ourselves everyone has a dream a vision but we’re not doing anything with it because we don’t have money unfortunately . I need to try and connect with some people that have resources we need to be able to break through those doors that are trying to stop us from seeing the manifestation of what we know can happen and we can’t let he lack of money stop us. To you my brother if you can establish something and bring it to the table to see what we’re bringing with us that would be a blessing. We just need a platform for someone to hear our voices. I hope you understand my frustration but black people don’t help each other that’s a problem I’m just venting I really need to talk to somebody that understands me please stay in touch and give me some feedback
