Poverty leads to more poverty. Poverty also leads to bad behavior, poor decisions, hate and jealousy towards others, and mental illness. Most people who endure poverty during childhood, grow up with mental issues that need years of therapy and recovery. On the contrary, just because you grow up with money or end up with it, doesn’t mean you won’t experience these things. One of the most depressing every day norms, is social media. Instagram is one of the top leading causes of depression and suicide in teens and young adults. Shout out to those who worked hard and stayed dedicated to achieve their goals while struggling financially. If you have a “nothing to something story,” be proud of the struggle. If you are going through the struggle now, remember the only thing that keeps someone stagnant is 1) Not realizing they are stagnant, 2) Realizing they are and doing nothing about it. 3) Too comfortable being in their position, 4) Giving up as soon as they realize how hard it is to get out. Don’t let those things stop you from being who you can and want to be. Change your mindset, change your life. – MJ #mentality #makeachange #doyou

Since starting my company at 17, I’ve had to sacrifice lots of things. Discovering what you want to do in life at an early age is a blessing. However, you live a different lifestyle than your peers because of the mindset you develop at such a young age. As a woman of color who grew up in poverty and motherless, I had to sacrifice more than most and to be frank, I just couldn’t do what others could. So, I challenged all that energy to growing my business. As a result, I am successful and I am able to talk to others about the things I’ve gone through and the sacrifices I had to make to get to where I am today. Advice: If you don’t have a goal, career, or idea to challenge your energy, then now is the time to create one. Begin to build your life. It’s never to late to begin again. No matter how early you start or how late, what’s yours is yours. Be great. ~ MJ #entrepreneur #motivation #inspiration #striveforgreatness
Saturday, Direct Consultants, LLC visited SHIELD Mentor Program in Greensboro. We talked to the youth about leadership and ideas on how to give them a chance to express their talents. Thanks to our kind donors, many of them walked away with nice dresses, suits, shoes, ties, jewelry, and much more.
This weekend was awesome with our students. We spend hours each class teaching teenagers personal and professional development. We watch their self-esteem increase each class and it is amazing. I love what I do. ❤️
I have always had a passion to help and teach others. Day two with my students was awesome. Personal development is key when wanting to be successful. It helps with confidence, goal setting, and life in general. The best part about being an instructor is working hard for something then teaching it to another generation.
