Drinking the Capitalist Kool-Aid
I need money to put food on my table.
I need money to get my kids to school.
I need money to live the good life.
I bet some of y’all had these thoughts running through your heads when you heard my podcast on Thursday. And you ain’t wrong, sis.
You do need the money. And you have every right to it.
Hell, for so many of us women and femmes of color, this isn’t even a choice.
We have to earn big if we wanna make our dreams come true, if we wanna make our kids’ dreams come true and especially if we wanna make our parents proud.
You might be thinking, It’s easy for her to say, she’s already got the money, she already did the quantum leaping, she can slow it down ,take her Wednesdays off, go dancing if she wants, and it won’t make a difference to her.
Well, I hear ya. I know that when I talk about kicking the quantum leap and taking it slow, I speak from a place of privilege.
But I also know something else. I know that getting rich overnight feels terrifying. I know cause I nearly killed myself tryna get richer faster and faster without ever realising the importance of steady, sustainable growth.
And you know what I learnt?
I learnt that you can make money without drinking the Capitalist Kool-Aid. You can take it slow and still make money to feed your kids, fulfil your dreams and serve the people around you.
And the best part? You can be happy while doing it.
If there’s one thing 2020 has taught me, it’s that life is short.
How the fuck do we want to live it?
That is the real question.
If you wanna be happy AND still make a shit ton of money, if you wanna do business in revolutionary ways, and if you wanna join a community of other women and femmes of color running their own revolutionary businesses, join my Facebook group.
And together, let us bring on the Revolution!
Until next time,
We Can’t Thrive Alone!
The best part about building a Revolutionary life is knowing that your fam’s got your back. Join the Revolutionary Changemakers of Color Facebook group for women and femmes of color who want to create change, and do it THEIR way.
