    now people are watching the youtube videos that they made of themselves in a separate room in the house

    niggas we know ain't trying to hear about poolin resources together

    i would assume that most big businesses started off theiving and conning and killing to get their money up to start business

    ^ having that compared to working in an office where its got air conditioning in the summer, heat in the winter, you're seldomly on-call, get paid for sitting at an office where the majority of the time you're playing solitaire, you're almost always guaranteed to be off at 4pm everyday with always havign stat-holidays off and weekends off, have free coffee and tea at the companies expense, decent sanitary restrooms that are cleaned nightly, have catering brought to you regularly through the month, etc etc

    I am describing the work conditions from working at RIM Technologies personally, and they have to be the most pampered assholes I've ever seen; why would you work through the alternative when this potentially could be an option, considering in trades you're probably making less than these I.T jag-offs, and you're doing more work than they could ever dream of doing getting paid HALF of that?......


    I'd rather be a white collar over a blu collar any-day, unfortunately the white-collar profile is usually an option only assisted by knowing somebody rather than "what" you know

    i know your pain

    starting your business is good, but in order to make the real big money, you are most likely at some point going to need competent help. and that is one of the biggest problems to getting big

    ^that's true about the resources thing sunny its a shame because there some good opportunities out there

    im indian and alot indians are doing well and caking it by just setting up convenience stores..the product sells itself, zero advertising needed, often resilient versus big chain stores...people always need cigarettes and alcohol.

    It's either you and your family make moves as a unit and take care of each other or, you and your family work for other peoples families so they can make moves and take care of each other

    im not talking about going into construction.

    if you know how to install roofing, for example, you start off with your family members either for free or for dirt cheap. you do roofing work for them and do a good job at it. they refer you to their friends. they allow them to come over and see your work. they like the work and they contact you to do work for them. you charge them for the work. BAM, you're an en treprenuer making money. as you work up your client base you make more money and are able to invest in your business by buying more and better equipment to do the job.

    you wont need to spend money on a storefront. just tools, equipment, and a vehicle to carry it all.
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    Actually..

    If you have a new idea for a business or product, you can raise capitol by taking advantage of services like Kick Starter.

    There are a lot of options out there, but people either arent aware of them or really like the sound of themselves whining.

    America has no choice but to reinvent its economy to be more entrepreneur-orientated. Especially considering non-skilled manual labor will become obsolete in our lifetimes.

    ^ I'd like to make my own martial arts facility, and teach lessons as well as sell merchandise, but I think the teaching is a different aspect altogether regarding opening a business, which I think is a lil more difficult; though I am completely oblivious to it so I stand to be corrected

    Black college men end up just a few dollars ahead of Whites who went no further than high school.

    I 1st heard this statistic from Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad, director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black-Culture during a small community forum/workshop.
    I've never read this book, but it is also stated in: Two Nations, by Andrew Hacker


    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Black unemployment is consistently near double that of whites, percentage wise.
