Black Love

The best way to celebrate love is to reinvest in yourself and your community. You will only reap what you sow.


Benefits of no meat Diet (my perspective)

My reasons for not eating meat

1. I’ve never been comfortable with meat consumption. It does not feel right. The older I became i have managed to clean up my diet

2. It isn’t healthy for me. Too many risk factors including artificial meats and addition of steroids etc which effects my health and wellbeing

3. I am healthier and i feel healthier

4. Since eliminating meats i look at food differently and i make healthier choices

5. Since i am more sensitive about what i eat i have become wiser in my spending as well. I actually save money due

The Power of the Black Dollar 💵

The power of the black dollar.

Black consumers are the most analyzed group of people. As consumers, we spend an inordinate amount of money, even if we are poor!!! Clothing, jewelry, makeup, hair products and the biggie for me FOOD. We eat out a lot.

I don’t want to elaborate on our romance with vehicles. Too much of a sore point with me.

Okay, so now during this holiday seasons where are you investing all this money BLACK PEOPLE?

Are we going to continue on with the careless spending or are we going to consciously spend, raise the bar and help to uplift each other instead of discussing? Put your money where your mouth is. I know lots of great black businesses I can steer in your direction.

Make Black America Great Again.

I live right here in the heart of Brooklyn.  A familiar scene is horrible customer service.  Oftentime customers can be seen arguing with employees.  It hurts my heart.  I oftentime create diversions to get the employee to focus on something else while the customer slinks away muttering to themselves and very unsatisfied with their experience.  This is very disheartening because one should never leave an establishment feeling disenchanted, or disgruntled.

It is my vision to get businesses in this area in particular to increase customer service training to staff.  Make a more concerted effort to follow up on customer service complaints when they do get them.  And, simply listen to what customers are saying about their shopping experience.
Customer service is an essential feature of a business. If we are not valued as customers what is the point of spending our money?
