02nupe These #DRAKE lyrics from the #VIEWS album is soooooo . Crazy thing is the #VISION is crystal clear these days, it's was so clouded trying to do what everybody else was doing around relationships.... One day though. Sooner than later. #Redemption kudos to all y'all making it work!!! 3d
  •   02nupe That's not true @_mp._ check the credits. Folks act like drake wasn't Poppin in 06-09 before he got big and didn't write his own lyrics most of the time. Y'all ain't saying that about Beyoncé. And they both still dope how they deliver the words. 3d

02nupe REAL LIFE STRUGGLE FOR MANY!!! This why when some of y'all come at me with that BS, I know what I'm talking about, I know the numbers. Stay at home mom or dad my a**..... How sway?! (In 90% of the cases)
Love ain't paid the first bill....... I'm a realist. I'm trying to save for some of this NOW and I don't even have a family. Folks so unprepared but want to jump in a relationship for the sake of just being in one...... #DynastyMinded #LegacyMinded it takes team work, not one person doing all the Financial work. I digress though...... Good read via @CNNmoney

  •   _weirdojellie I thought the picture was powerful! But damn... The caption was the icing on the cake! 🏾 real life, haven't started a family yet and I'm already saving up for this too 4d

  •   _bellahendrix I was in that very dilemma while i was in college love does NOT pay the bills!! 4d
  •   bortizdeleon Couldn't agree more! We chose to have 2 kids; and are preparing for their education and our retirement! Sometimes it seems like a hit, but the future alternative (like this story) reassures our decision to take home less!!! 4d

02nupe Reading this makes me humble and also tells me I need to think BIGGER!!! Guy number 1 is thinking BIG and looks like he didn't get married & have a kid till mid 30s. Gave him a chance to build something first.
Read more by Googling esquire and article title. #LEVELS "1.)Millionaire: age 35
Do you keep a budget? We track every single penny that comes in and out of our bank account. And we give 6 percent of our money away to charity. We have a big heart for animals, children, the el­derly, the underprivileged.
Saving for retirement? Yes. [I've put away] north of $5 million

Married 9 with month old son

2.)250k a year: age 41
Has one credit card and keeps balance at zero.
Do you keep a budget? Yes, I'm very organized with it. Overall, my fixed expenses are about $7,000 a month. They include rent and about $1,000 a month for transportation, $180 a month to the cleaning lady, $200 for gas for the vehicle, and a handful of little things—$300 a month for Netflix, Pandora, Skype, subscriptions like that.
Do you have credit cards? Fifteen.
How much debt are you carrying now? $7,700 on one card, and it should be paid off by the end of the month.
Saving for retirement? I am saving, but not for re­tirement. I'm saving up to buy an apartment building, which will give me another stream of income. My money is all in play right now to make more money. The kind of life that I want to live when I retire is not one I have to manage by having, you know, a million dollars and 3 or 4 percent [interest]. It's not going to happen.
In a relationship 1 kid.
3.) 53k a year: age 48
Do you keep a budget?
We do. Because of the size of our family, we have to budget at least $150 per month for BJ's [Wholesale Club]. BJ's is our friend; we have to buy in bulk. Has one credit card no debt.
Married with 3 kids
4.) The poverty line : age 25
Do you keep a budget? No, but I have been working on trying to recently. I know I have to pay bills for food, for clothes, gas. It's a lot of things that go into budget­ing. It's hard to plan for, be­cause you never really know what you're going to need to spend money on. And the amount of money I make var­ies, because I work different hours." 2 kids

02nupe So first of let me thank CEO of #WalkerAndCompany (which houses The brand @Bevel) @tristanwalker . So I went to the company Facebook page and made a comment on an article they shared. He reached back out directly. Come to find out a target in the Raleigh, NC area (Durham,NC actually) actually carried his product in stock. Being that as an African American we should definitely support our own I ran out tonight to pick up the razor. I look forward to seeing first hand how a product made specifically for men like me works. With that said in case y'all didn't know Walker and company (no relation by the way lol) has the potential to be the black proctor and gamble (or bigger) as they continue to launch more brands geared toward minorities and more. (Folks already tried to buy him out). #BlackExcellence all around. 🏾 2w

Read more by googling the title. "INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (April 12, 2016)-- A group of PhD candidates in the Indiana School of Education is making history. They're known as "the great eight." They've formed a sister circle and they say it's been the key to crossing the finish line.
When you're the only or one of a handful of people of color in the classroom particularly when it comes to speaking about issues of race. You can often become the token or spokesperson," Haywood said."Standing in solidarity with each other as women and as black women but also opening up a space where we're standing in solidarity with other historically underrepresented marginalized groups in the university," said PhD candidate Tiffany Kyser."If we get more images of showing us in these positive lights. Then we can truly say this is nothing special because it happens all the time. So until we get to that point we'll be the great eight and we'll shine that light on it," said PhD candidate Demetrees Hutchins"

02nupe So I discovered more about downtown #Durham Last night. Pretty cool area too. With that said at the 21c Museum Hotel they have a real live old vault room, along with the old elevator with the old sliding door. In the vault room was this floor. What is noted is it gives the illusion of wealth as all the $100 dollar bills have the same serial number. Also you see the $100,000 dollar bill (president Woodrow Wilson face on it) which was printed from 1934-1935 and in circulation via banks only until the 1960s. Largest denomination of United States money every printed. With that said working on accumulating for starters 10 x $100,000. Making solid progress too. #ART 💶💷 2w
