Greed, in all its forms; greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge has marked the upward surge of mankind...

🙋🏼Social Media has become the focal point for marketing that people act like that forgot how to hustle and grind. If social media was to shut down right now, how would your business survive? How would you grow? Would you have to close the doors on what you have built? Would you have to close the doors on your lifetime dream? Social media is a marketing tool and should be used as such but it should not be your only tool for marketing. #marketing101

“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” -Audre Lorde 〰️
Over the last year, this quote has stuck with me. The more I think about what our community needs, what Oakland needs, and what I need—it’s joy. Pure, unadulterated, joy. As I’ve watched downtown shift and become less recognizable by the day, I remind myself that while I must not give up the fight for the things I love about this city, the sustainable and radical solution is self-care. At the end of the day, this system was not made for us, as a woman of color entrepreneur, I’ve seen first hand how this system was not made for me. But I cannot and will not let that bring me down and what reminds me of that, is this quote; because at the end of the day this system can and will try to take everything from me, but they can never take my joy. So as the women’s march in Oakland happens today, I hope we all find the joy we need to keep us fighting for the things we love. .
Sometimes it pays to keep your cards close to your chest. Other people don’t need to know everything about you. Tell them what they do need to know, then keep the rest to yourself in classy silence. Thank you to @visionofsuccess 🙏
