Manifestation - Manifest What You Want

I had a delightful radio interview with Denise Turney of Off the Shelf on Saturday.  I greatly enjoyed it because Denise was so warm and so knowledgeable.  Please listen to the interview below.

If you enjoy it and find it useful, please share this interview with your networks. 

Denise is one of the bloggers I interviewed in Secrets of the Black Bloggers.  

The one thing I forgot to mention when Denise asked me about my ebooks The Key to Everything and What They Don't Want Us to Know was manifestation.  I'm sorry to say I drew a blank - has that ever happened to you?  

I am brilliant at manifesting.  Click here for info about what I have manifested in my life - so far - and how you can do it, too.

Lest We Forget: The Haitian Revolution

Toussaint L'Ouverture
Lest we forget, the 23rd of August is African Remembrance Day, marking the day when enslaved Africans on the island of Haiti rose up against their oppressors and freed themselves.  

The Haitian people, under leaders including Toussaint L'Ouverture and Jean Jacques Dessalines, fought off the French, British and Spanish armies, and then fought off the French again under Napoleon.  The Haitians were never defeated.  

The use of traditional African spirituality was a significant factor in the victory of the Haitian people and their emancipation from slavery.  Click here to read more about the use of African spirituality

However, a treaty signed by Haiti required them to pay reparations to their former masters, which has led to the impoverishment of people in what was once the most prosperous island in the Caribbean.  The devastation of the Haiti earthquake in early 2010 was greatly compounded by the impoverishment of the population and the lack of resources in Haiti.

$50,000 in Three Days

Marcus Garvey
I saw a documentary entitled "The Promised Ship" last night, screened by Black History Studies.  Did you know that Marcus Garvey raised $50,000 for the Black Star Line in three days?  This was from poor banana-growing communities in Costa Rica in the early 1920s.  

Check out the video below for more info.  

What does this tell us about the potential of Black-owned businesses today?  Remember, Garvey did this without the internet, without mobile phones, without any of the modern methods of mass communication that we have available.  

Black businesses potentially have enormous economic clout.  I have been talking about this on the radio and we will continue to talk about this.  See also:  Black Businesses:  Our Economic Clout

Stay tuned for Part 2 on the subject of our economic clout.

London's Top Black Men and Women of Power

Courttia Newland
Black Enterprise has identified London's top Black men and women of power.  Not sure I agree with their choices.  

It's great to see writer Courttia Newland included in the list of London's Top Black Men of Power.  

In Black Success Stories, I did not just list people's accomplishments.  I asked them how they achieved their successes.  It's all there in the book.  

You May Be on the Verge of a Breakthrough

You need to have that breakthrough.  You deserve to have it.  And you can have it.  Listen to this audio to find out more.
