Ownership is key

Few minutes ago, i got the opportunity to watch Travor Noah, a kid from South Africa who defiled all known stereotypes of African comedians to rise to fame and ultimately becoming the host of the number one talk show in US The Daily Show.

I was uncomfortable digesting some home truths. The similarities between Travor and myself was too much to take. We love to travel, tell jokes, defile stereotypes and above all make people feel better than they met us.

Watching him engage his audience with ease, reminded me he has working and not on a job. Myles Munroe once said and i paraphrase, “your career is your job, your profession, but your work is your purpose here on earth. The reason God created you in the first place.”

In comes Tyler Perry. The most successful black film maker and entrepreneur. American actor, playwright, and filmmaker. In 2011, Forbes listed him as the highest paid man in entertainment, earning $130 million USD between May 2010 and 2011, and he is currently worth $600 million. When you factor Acrimony, he will be close to the billion dollar mark.
The ACRIMONY producer for the records, owns the first wholly-black studio in America, bigger than the legendary Warner Brothers. He said, “Ownership is the key to longevity, ownership is the key to generational wealth and that’s what we need to learn as people of colour.”

Dear you, create and own a business or idea that you can transfer to generations unborn. Banish the demons of doubts and start. Starting is the first step to achieving your dreams.
I have resolved to pursue my work hoping my kids will thank me for leaving them wealth they can transfer to their kids.
Dear Future Wife, we have a lot on our hands.
With love,

Viral Pictures From Photoshoot Of Army ‘Brothers’ And Baby Daughter Of A Fallen Soldier

Britt and Chris got married in October 2016 and were enjoying a happy young family life. Unfortunately, tragedy struck in August 2017, when Chris was killed in action in Afghanistan. The U.S. Army soldier died from an attack by a suicide bomber only a week after finding out that he was going to be a father.

 

Britt shared the devastating news with her Instagram followers by writing “Goodbye my hero. My person. My calming voice. My soul mate. My world. My soldier. My savior. You will never be forgotten. You will never be replaced.” The woman had no other choice but to be strong not only for herself, but also for the tiny life that she was now carrying.

On March 17, 2018 a beautiful baby girl was born and named after her father. “I knew when Chris passed, I would mourn him as my husband and later I would have to mourn the father of my child,” Britt wrote. “It’s been over 8 months without him. Christian is here now and I can’t help but feel sad. He was so excited. We had plans and in none of them did I ever plan to do this alone. I wanted a family. But I know I can do everything from Christian that Chris would have wanted. I can give her the life and love he would have. I vowed to protect him in death and I will use that same passion to protect her with my life.”

Chris always considered his fellow soldiers to be a part of his extended family, his army ‘brothers,’ so Britt wanted them to be involved and organized a special touching photoshoot. She met her husband’s fellow soldiers, who arrived back home from Afghanistan and arranged for them to meet baby Christian for the first time.

Around 20 men from Chris’ battalion showed up to celebrate the baby girl wearing their military uniforms. The photoshoot touched the hearts of many people, showing a true, beautiful bond. Like Britt wrote, they are “Christian’s great big family.”
