Greetings,

I included a chapter on balancing spiritual and financial growth in my book, Meditations Across The King’s River because I felt it was a conversation we need to have.

…I still feel that way.

And that’s what I said when I was interviewed on the radio show Africa Today about two years ago. If you missed it, you can listen to it here: https://kpfa.org/player/?audio=302530

It’s plain to see how important wealth conversations are now.

…The health and economic crisis that has shaken our world has made this clear.

Recently, a writer for the New York Times said, “the work force that powers our economy today is a low-wage work force that is disproportionately made up of Black women and other women of color. But we don’t take care of them at all.”

The article goes on to say: “Many jobs that were lost may never return. Too many of us could end up working along a Walmart or Amazon supply chain, while not earning enough to shop there.” You can read more here: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/24/opinion/sunday/…

I don’t know what your financial situation is, but I do know there are many things we can all do to improve our financial situation even as we continue fighting police brutality and racism.

…I shared a few practical steps in my book.

But it’s not enough to have more information; it’s crucial to act on information.

…And we must also must understand where we are wasting precious time, money and energy.

My life has changed dramatically since I wrote Meditations Across The King’s River.

These days, every single day, I teach others what I am learning — how to make money in the largest financial markets in the world. I’m a trader, and I love it. If you would like more information about this, reach out to me.

My journey has taught me that some communities are light years ahead and others are light years behind when it comes to finances. Not good.

I’ve also learned that you – yes you, can probably be wealthy if you have the right tools, the right discipline, the right mentors, and the right mindset.

Can’t go into everything right now but here are some tips.

1. You must be intentional:You can’t just pray about financial improvement. You must know what steps to take and you must take them consistently. Think about how can your invest your money or save more of it each week.

2. Educate yourself: I teach others, but I also study from successful mentors every week.

3. Expand your circle: If no one in your circle is talking about wealth and/or taking steps to achieve it, expand your circle.

4. Examine your beliefs about money: Too many people have been led to believe that it’s not spiritual to want wealth or strive to achieve it. I disagree. We are all being called to build a nation and we can’t do it if we are constantly struggling. If you want to travel, fund projects you believe in, or buy a home, you’re going to need money.

5. Watch your relationships: If you’re in a troubled, toxic relationship it will be difficult to build wealth because you’ll be too emotionally drained to make wise decisions. Let toxic friends go too.

6.Get a mentor: A mentor can accelerate your learning curve and get you to your goals much faster than you can on your own.

I love talking about wealth. But I also love short newsletters.

So I’ve got to go…

Keep your spirits up.

You deserve better and it’s not too late. Let’s manifest those dreams.

Send me a message and I’ll respond to you asap.

All my love
