Reblog: You’ve Managed to Get Past Overdrafting — Now What?


Found this article and it’s speaks alot of truth. Being a tee year old I see a lot if young people around my age and younger when they get a increase in pay or just have a job where they can clock inna lot of money the first thing that they think about is buying things that depreciation in value. Like cars, X-box, PlayStation, jewelry, etc. They can’t wait to hand the money back over instead of saving it and investing in things that appreciate in value and will still exist long after they are gone from this earth. Like buildings, properties. My generation of young people have to know the importance of investing in things that is worth value. Using our younger years to establish financial freedom. In day and time we are so invested in getting rich. Rather that being a athletes or a musician of some sort. That we are not paying attention that there is no one way to attain wealth. You have to be smart with your money and seek out opportunities to grow the money. As a young person we love fast money but don’t understand the ins and outs of how to double or even triple our profits. So we just quickly hand it back over to the economy and constant keep making others richer than ourselves. Our mindset needs to change. We need to start looking into buying and selling goods. Like from stores such as Amazon, Etsy, eBay and much more. We can buy something that like let’s say a pair of Jordans at $250 then try to resale it for double that. I mean if we’re silly enough to buy a pair of shoes that is retailed at $250 that only value is to cover our feet and walk on the nasty ground through mud, spit, pee and dog mess. Then there is someone out there just as silly enough to buy this for $500 or even $450 if the item is something that is valuable enough to the consumer.

My point is start investing your money into things that will appreciate over time not depreciation over time.

So peace

Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.
