My grandfather left my father with nothing. My father was determined to have a different outlook on money. He disciplined himself and saved over $100,000 and taught himself how to do stocks. My dad had discipline at an early age that I am just adopting later in age. I wish I would have grasped this when I was younger, but I was hardheaded.
God has given me the ability to create and sell. I have made a lot of money and lost a lot of money. The main reason I lost a lot of money is because I didn’t ground myself in key financial areas. Discipline and knowledge is important; currently, I am in the season of grounding myself in financial literacy. What would be the point of making $10 million and losing it all because of lack of discipline and knowledge? My dad was key in certain seasons when I needed $10,000 here and there. I appreciate those moments more than he knows, even though I hated asking.
I have one granddaughter, named Arie. When she was born, I was already an entrepreneur. I created an Unapologetic for Kids apparel line so that she could have something when she gets older. My goal is to immerse her in financial literacy. I would do her more harm than good if I was able to pass down a million dollars without her being ready for it. We have to make sure we are training up the next generation to be financially responsible.#GodBlessTheEntrepreneur
