- Black self-empowerment mantra: I am the solution. I am the resource my people needs. I am the Let’s Buy Black 365 movement.
- If you wait until you need something, want something, or have something you want someone to buy from you to start building relationships and showing up in people’s lives, you’ll always wonder why people are not showing up for you.
- Intuition and self-determination are the best weapons against people who plow over your needs for their own agenda. It’s not rude to stand up for yourself, voice your needs, and shut shit down if your needs are being ignored. To do any less is self-destructive.
- At the heart of every issue in the Black community, there is an economic undercurrent. Buying Black isn’t where it ends. Buying Black is where it starts.
