What many of us fail to realize is that one day we will become old and may need some one to take care of us and look out for our best interest, the ones who are more than likely will be doing it; is our children.
This is why it is important for our people to do all that t we can to be the best that we can be on all levels, especially when it comes to business and finances. We know that there will continue to be obstacles that will get in our way weather it will be physically, mentally, financially, socially and spiritually and furthermore some racist practices that still plague our country. Now with all that being said are you personally doing anything to not only ensure your childâ€™s successful future but also your own?
Are you teaching your children both male and female all you can to keep them focuses and to live a balance and financial stable life?
Many of us are in the middle (truly); of taking care of aging parents or parent (who need us) and also taking care of children, we are stronger than we think.
The question is: do you want your children to be doing the same for you? I hope it is a yes, no one want to be taken care of by a bunch of uncaring strangers. (Nursing home etc.)
One of the best ways to help them to be able to help you is to encourage them to start their own business. This way they are the boss, and would have the flexibility to not only have the financial means which is very important but the time also to check on you or you can follow up if they do have an in home nurse, (god forbid you would have to be put in a facility at least the finances will be there).
I feel that one of the major reasons the black community has broken down is because of the lack of Black business in many neighborhoods; it just felt good when you could buy groceries or gas and other things from a black business owner. It felt like a community (Common Unity) now many communities have lost that.
I am not saying that it is for everyone, running business can be very demanding but your future and theirs are relied on if not teaching but providing the tools and resources that is need. At least give them the option that it is possible to do this.
You can start it up and pass it on many of our young people are ambitious and smart enough and can make it happen, we just have to give them a chance and stop restricting them with just getting a job (Just.Over.Broke.)
It is up to us; those in the middle to make it happen, we are all in this together.
