When I was a young bull, sitting in solitary in Sullivan County... I dreamed myself this way. Fly, in a Benz with a stack full of Blue Faces.
I thought that was cool, until I got a mentor.
The first time I met him I asked him, “What you do?” He showed me his #BlackCard and said, “This is what I do! That’s all I know!” As time goes by and I was in his office in the World Trade Center, I remembered his words... “If you can touch or even count your money you got no money!” I looked at him intensely, as he banged at my ego.
He continued, leaned forward in a low, yet focused tone and said, “They day you can check your account 3 times every hour and there is a 7 figure number change... the day you can buy any shit you want from any where without using your money... is the day you got money! Anything other than that... your broke... Credit is the new DOLLAR!” That sat with me for a few days. I couldn’t get a house with no credit. I couldn’t expand my business or get equipment I needed for anything with out good credit or enough collateral to move forward. That was the beginning of my financial literacy. Trust me.... this pic isn’t cool... it’s to impress broke people that may want to rob me!🤷🏾♂️ #seedsintheconcrete #treesgrowinbrooklyn #lesson #lessonlearned #journals #financialfreedom #brooklynbatman #blackbrucewayne @imurjesprinter #future #growthmindset
