Greeting Reflections. I messed up, kinda. So, remember awhile back when I posted that I was offered a blogging gig with a magazine? Well upon our speaking prior to being offered the job, she was very open about being able to blog on a universal level, and by universal I mean everyone could relate to and I agreed. Now let me first say that I honestly thought I could do it, I really did and it was on money so I was like, yeah, everybody likes money, I can do that for sure. But more specifically stocks, no problem right? Uh huh, problem. See, I research and dig until I am filled with so much new knowledge that I think I am going to burst if I don’t get it out and that is when I know its time to write. Well ol’ McGenius me came across all types of statistics about black people and their presence, or lack thereof, in the stock market. Before I knew it I was reaching out to prosperous black investors and getting their input on this big new project that was once a simple little blog. Now, I have this amazing article and no where to put it. What am I going to do with me ya’ll. I mean, first off, I pick up a new hustle like I have all the time in the world and am well rested (as I type #9 is staring at me to pick him up at 12:33 a.m.). In addition, I know I should have known better than to think that I can create something universal with all the love I have for my Reflections and my desire to push for more growth within our communities.
Please do not misinterpret what I am saying. I love everyone who loves me back I just feel like my Reflections need more love, encouragement, and support and I am all for it. Now if you are not a person of color and you can take something from what I write, then I implore you to go be great as well with it.
The biggest issue I am having is, with me being an entrepreneur at heart, I instantly went into creativity mode when I realized I could not blog like I thought I could, ‘universally’. With that being said, we need a magazine called Black Money or Black Dollars, something that can shine a direct light on the financial opportunities to and for people of color. Blogging and articles about money, from banking to investing to sharing and checking. You can also have interviews with people in the financial industry, there will be advertising spots as well as small business spotlights. The same as any other magazine. Now I will be the first to pat myself on the back but I truly believe that this is a good idea, I would even be an investor to this magazine. *Hunches Shoulders* hopefully someone will read this and get the ball rolling because I know a few people who own magazine companies and I know it is no easy task so I can say with surety that this is not something I am looking to start up, but I will help you if you do decide, let me know.
