    Nothing like that freedom.

    Some people think it's harder than what it is....

    Some people think it's easy and once you get that LLC certificate that 🤬 is just sweet and it ain't like that.

    It's not as hard as you think as far as thinking your way through it, but the hours, and the sweat you have to put in can't be ignored.

    Look at it like a space shuttle, it's hard to get out the atmosphere at the beginning of the voyage, but that's the hardest part. Once you get rolling, you're rolling.

    Everybody wanna be a boss until it's time to be one. Hard work, but well worth it.

    As far as people talking about stability, the stability you have at your job was once a business that someone started with no stability.

    I can't have a job because for one, i'm felonied up. And tim hortons dont pay enough. And 2. I'm not having a college graduate that I know i'm smarter than talkin wild to me because another 🤬 that i'm smarter than gave him the position to do so lol.

    WHY is this white 🤬 interrupting?? the brothers are trying to build/have a positive conversation

    she is a white woman she can always sell 🤬 or wait for a man to take care of her..... but for us men and this goes for all races of men but especially black men we have to build some 🤬 for the babies.

    coming in here to say some 🤬 about me being condescending and not explaining how.

    nah....i dont believe that.

    People have 1000 other responsibilities time is precious. what works for on doesnt necessarily work for the next man, and if you dont have capital to begin with that makes it even harder..

    some people work to live others live to work. Simple as that. It doesnt explicitly point to drive.. some people use different vehicles to express their drive...

    and at what point will you see that time and energy is wasted on things we become a slave to.

    being a slave to a mortgage and car payment, why?

    i get what you are saying but at what point will a person take a risk?

    why must it be either or?

    so you cant have a stable income and do ground work to start your own thing and slowly transition?

    🤬 cant sit down with their s/o and explain to them the idea and the plan and have a back up just in case?

    you cant start saving money now to take thats step and have a cushion just in case?

    Interrupting? 🤬 please, I will interject when and where I see fit.

    It was just a question, sometimes the message can be lost in the delivery.

    Meanwhile, plenty of men accumulate wealth for their family contributing to another person's vision. So what?

    Would having your own SUCCESSFUL business be ideal? Yes, but there are tradeoffs to achieving that type of success. Different people have different ideas to what defines a fulfilling life.

    kinda like showing ya 🤬 on the net?

    the message can be lost in the delivery and it can also be lost because you aint ready to hear it.

    meanwhile....a whole bunch of other people are going for it to feed they family.

    success doesnt look for you...you have to look for it.

    from what you are saying is....it would be nice to be a millionaire but the tradeoffs to get the money wont allow a fulfilling life.

    Fam people have different motivations, some people have great responsibilities where they cant afford to take risk..
    some people are good at math, while others are good at reading

    owning some 🤬 doesnt make one higher evolved. more responsible so on and so forth.

    there is a difference between having wealth and just being rich with lots of money.

    wealth is best defined as a money making process that you can give to someone else ideally your inheritors. Your granddad could have been a millionaire but unless he was able to pass onto you the process by which he made his millions then..... in a few generations your family could end up being poor again.

    Working for someone else may be lucrative for YOU but you won't be able to pass that onto your grandkids because unless you are royalty they won't inherit your job.

    Who said you need to pass mass wealth to your grandkids? That's how we get these self absorbed, out of touch, old money 🤬 like the Trumps walking around. Give your kids the tools they need to make a life for themself and then let them go make their own way in life. See how there are different views on how life is to be lived? Does that make me or you wrong? No, just different. Both are needed for either to succeed.


    kinda like showing ya 🤬 on the net?



    What does that have anything to do with my post? Holla at me when you're out your feelings.

    Along with passing on wealth you are supposed to pass on morals and principles so that they don't become totally self absorbed.

    Your perspective is totally feminine and PASSIVE. Men like to set a path for their families we like to lead WE have plans and goals for our sons. Letting YOUR CHILDREN just go their own way is 🤬 foolish and is the same as letting them go astray. If they decide to rebel then they rebel but your responsibility is to leave something substantial for them.

    They can make the best lives for themselves with the tools you leave them if you leave them inferior tools they will make an inferior life.

    I'm just not ready. Its something I want to do

    I took the first step, started volunteering which led to working part time (in addition to my full time job)

    Just learning now and figuring out how to make it work for me. I would love to not have to clock in one day
