Economic Empowerment Through MLM

Let's talk about Economic Empowerment through MLM.

I was walking around the campus of my college when I realized why there was such a disparity in my income, my families income, the income of my friends and extended family members; even the income of other black people I met at that university. This is when I began thinking about economics and how everything in our nation is tied to the plantation.

The plantation became the corporation and today we have what are commonly known as corporate slaves.

People no longer are living their lives with a purpose - other than going to work to slave away for someone else.

Meanwhile how this ongoing 'cycle' impacts the black people of America, is played out daily on our streets. What is often lost on us is that these economic conditions that so many black people find themselves in were planned.

But these were not the fully formed thoughts in my head while walking around the campus that day. I just realized that, had my parents owned a business rather than, been employees that we'd have more money. I was beginning to understand the importance of money in this society. I was starting to see the correlation between who I wanted to date, where I wanted to go, what I wanted to do and how much money I had.

I began thinking about how to change that, for future generations of my family.

That search brought me to MLM.

I want to talk to you about economic empowerment of the black community in America through MLM.

I remember when I sat in on the first MLM presentation I ever saw in 1999. I remember thinking 3 words to myself - "THIS IS IT!" ...

I found it.

I found the way that was going to help pull my people out of economic mediocrity.

I knew people, who knew people who knew people. I could envision us building a network - distributing products and services through this network and laughing all the way to the bank! It was legal, it was going to save people money - and it had the potential to increase anyone's income if they chose to work with our team.

Then I Began talking to people.

I came to realize the mental enslavement of black people was deeper than I ever imagined.

Several told me they heard of 'those pyramid things' - and none of them work.

They told me that I should go look for a good job, like they were doing.

Black people have been socially and psychologically conditioned to keep the system in place. Most would rather look for a job and work for someone else, than discuss the possibilities of coming together, and working together to create true wealth, with one another.

The opportunity was also $499 - which presented another barrier for people; a financial barrier.

The combination of financial and mental barriers kept so many of the people I wanted to do business with, from joining my business and working with me. They weren't in the business so they didn't attend the business meetings; They didn't meet the business people I met. They didn't get to have the business experiences I experienced.

This made me understand that the real barriers to economic empowerment are truly education and environment.

Money alone, is not enough to empower black people.

However, if black people are given opportunities but do not get the proper education to take advantage of it, then what good is the opportunity?

That is where most of this conversation about economic empowerment hinges.

There are people who will exclaim that the opportunities are all around; but not enough people will deal directly with a HUGE flaw, that stops people in their tracks. When you live in economically suppressed areas, which most urban areas tend to be, you're around people who are not thinking like business owners.

You're usually going to be around people who think like slaves.

In order to become a FREE Thinker, which really means, to think outside of the 'box' you and others around you are thinking in - it helps to get around others who think outside boxes. The internet gives black people the power to change their environment. They can change the information that is coming into their lives on a daily basis. Instead of tuning into WorldStarHipHop - We invite you to tune into The Black Folder - part of our One MLM System to rule them all.

The black folder is where we are having a real, ongoing conversation about economic empowerment through MLM.

I believe that MLM is the perfect business model for people of color.

It removes the barriers; anyone can get involved - however to be successful with it; the time required to study and learn the craft is a must!

So, MLM brings people into an opportunity; and a good MLM company will provide training; or education - which each person has the chance to take seriously. Naturally if they hang out with people who are not in MLM; they will be discouraged.

They will get people who disempower them because that is what slaves do.

Slaves help keep other slaves on the plantation, serving the Master and keeping the cycle going.

This is why we encourage black people to Hang OUT in the black folder; and also in our Live support Office; where you can spend time around others who think the way you think; and who want the things you want.

You see, economic empowerment is only possible, when the person is mentally empowered.

"The World is the Plantation" - Jason Black

Slavery has 'changed' - and the only freedom for the black race will come from Unity; and economic empowerment.

MLM is the solution we're looking for.

Our System is the answer, to making it work for us!
