My Father's Business

A close friend of mine and I were discussing an incident that transpired in the Book of Matthew between Jesus and his twelve chosen disciples. Just before The Last Supper Jesus declared that one of them were going to betray him. Of course, they all denied the claim. However, that’s not what shocked me. What caught my attention was not the disciples’ reaction, but Jesus’ response. All along He knew who was going to betray him and when that betrayal would take place…but he changed not! He treated… Continue

The Secret

Everyone’s running scared talking about America is going through a recession. It’s time like these that economy strategists predicts cutting back and saving money a must. Really? Is that what a recession causes, cut backs? Because if that’s so, I’ve been in a recession for quite awhile now. In fact, I grew up in a recession! We didn’t always have the best of everything, but we made the best of what we had. I surely didn’t prance around in designer outfits, but my clothes were clean and… Continue

Due Season

I have learned that life is not always fair. I’m not going to always get what I want when I want it nor will things easily come my way. Nevertheless, in the midst of going through, God is there. It is He who keeps me from losing it all…my mind, my finances and even myself. Just when I am about to do something completely foolish, God steps in. He thoughtfully removes a bad influence from out of my life. He closes the door of a potentially disastrous business venture. He locks up all possible… Continue

Have you ever been tired…of mothering? Truth be told, I have. I’ve been to the point where I wanted to throw in the towel and just give up. I’ve even gone as far as contemplating dropping my boys off to their father and not returning. I would simply keep driving and not look back. I was tired. Burnt-out. Exhausted. Spent. Overwhelmed. Underappreciated. Anyway, you call it, it all comes up the same…t-i-r-e-d! I was tired of giving and giving, receiving nothing but bad attitudes and… Continue

Have you Mastered the Balancing Act?

Balance is a precious thing. Some days I have it and others …not so much. I don’t think my life is particularly busier than most; I just try to cram 40 hours of activity in a 24 hour day! I’m learning to cut things down to manageable size tasks and even to not work every day; yet I still feel a twinge of guilt when I’m sitting at my computer and my sons want me to stop and play basketball or color. I have a great husband who doesn’t mind pitching in and doing when I’m “in the zone”. There’s… Continue

Hiding From Our Greatness

I am often struck by the number of people who have extraordinary gifts and talents, but are afraid to expose them to the world. How many extremely talented people do you know who are hiding their greatness? All of us have something unique and special to offer. Oftentimes we hold back and only scratch the surface of what we could be. All of the symptoms of hiding are really the same in each of us. It’s either something in our past, an incident that we felt shut the door to a promising future, or… Continue

Find out how to earn points just for joining and inviting Black people to shop, network and socialize.

Have you heard of the Ebony experiment? A Black couple has dedicated the next year to try to spend with Black businesses as much as possible.

Now if we could just get 39,999,998 other Black people to do the same.

Etiquette and Ethics – How Do They Compare In Your Social Networking?

I have for some time been studying the conversations on some of the social networks I belong to and have noticed the buzz about building relationships first when you are joining these social media for business.

That is so true and great advice yet what I see is that some people do not stop to think about whether their relationship building is ethical and with the proper etiquette.

So my question is – How far will you go to build a relationship to benefit your… Continue
