Happy Black History Year (Month)! I’m kicking off this month of Black Excellence with a BANG! Last year I didn’t think too much about generational wealth because I thought was doing fine making a living. Then I saw an article that stated that the black woman’s network was $5. WTH! How can this be? I started to read more about generational wealth and how and why black people have a disadvantage. The biggest reason we have such a low net worth is because most of us started out as slaves. Slavery was only 150 (or less) years ago. That’s not that long. Our people were still fighting for our rights to vote in the south in the 60’s. My mom was a young woman at this time and live through it all. Yes, we have come a long way to go but we have to continue to work towards building real wealth.
Today you are in for a treat! I have the financial expert, Tonya Rapley from My Fab Finance sharing some important tips to building generational wealth. If you haven’t heard, Tonya is the shizzz! Tonya has been a “cover girl” of Black Enterprise, featured in Toyota campaigns, global speaker and also helped participants of her debt elimination challenge pay off over $400,000 in debt in 60 days. I told you she was the truth. I’m so excited that Tonya took time out of her busy schedule to share some important tips to building generational wealth. Please read this post and share! This is so important to us and our children and their children.
I hope you all had a great weekend. My weekend consisted of Bingo Night at Peyton’s school on Friday, watching my BFF daughter play basketball Saturday morning and a blogging event on Sunday. I also managed to catch up on laundry. Juggling motherhood and a career is not easy for any mom. One of the top emails or dm’s I get is how I became a Mompreneur or a full-time blogger. I thought I would share my journey with you guys since some of you may be new around here and missed the glow-up LOL! Here we go…
This recipe has been a long time coming. If you follow me on Instagram (if you don’t you should) and watch my stories you will see I cook quite often. Most of the time it’s the same meals but I like to shake things up and add something new. I made my low carb stuffed bell peppers back in November but I promised I would share the recipe. It’s finally here! I also did you one better and filmed a video while cooking it. That something new that I wanted to do for 2018, more simple cooking videos. Check out the recipe for my low-carb bell peppers below.
I hope you all had a great weekend! After being “snowed in” for almost a week, Atlanta finally thawed out. Peyton only went to school once last week. Even Mister was home for a few days. The week totally threw me off track. I’m not looking forward getting up early, but kind of looking forward to getting back to my routine. Another routine that I’m excited to get back to, Mommy and Me looks! Our first look of the year in all black is giving me black excellence vibes.
I’m back with my second #OrganizedonFleek challenge! Last week I tackled my pantry HERE and this week I’m taking you under my sink. I’ve found that organizing and decluttering work best when you break them down into small tasks. Under my kitchen sink was a hot mess filled with cleaners that I never use or even empty bottles. Watch the video below to see how I got it together and learn how you can participate in the Organized on Fleek Challenge to win a gift card to one of our favorite stores.
