We are all familiar with the proposed border wall that Trump declared he would build during his campaign. He wanted to build something to preserve the integrity of the United States. As President-Elect Trump puts it, “you cannot have a nation without boundaries”. While the statement is controversial, I think there is a metaphor in there.
The African American and minority community is in need of many walls and structures of wealth, prosperity and influence. These walls will create integrity within the community. But instead of waiting for someone to build the wall, WE have to be the change. If we know that we need walls it would be best that we get to building the walls instead of protesting about the lack of walls.
We have to learn how to build and then we have to take action with the bricks that we have now. Wealth is built brick by brick. And if anyone says we don’t have the foundation of wealth in our community they are lying to you. While most of us might not have huge pile of bricks, we still have bricks. It is up to us to pull our bricks out of the worlds system and concentrate them together so that we can finally have walls of our own. As we continue to build with bricks, more bricks will be attracted to the wall and the wall will grow and grow!
I am reminded of the Will Smith quote where he says “You don’t set out to build a wall. You don’t say ‘I’m going to build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that’s ever been built.’ You don’t start there. You say, ‘I’m going to lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid. You do that every single day. And soon you have a wall.”
Todd Capital is a wall. Our members and their monthly contributions are bricks. What we have shown and plan to continue to exemplify is that we built a wall with bricks contributed from every single person. People chipped in little by little and built something great. What would have taken one person a lifetime to build, was built by Todd Capital in less than a year.
It is my goal that we utilize this strategy in multiple ways going forward. I want us to leverage each other into large real estate deals, business deals and even get into lending. All of these strategies will not only preserve our bricks but begin to generate a flow of bricks coming back to us, passively. That is wealth! If we are smart about it, we can solve every problem that we have from gentrification to unemployment and even poverty. It is difficult for one to do it but with an entire community of people pushing toward a goal, it is more than possible. Stop being an individual and start working together for the benefit of the whole. Stop protesting and start working. Your kids cant inherit your protest. Your kids cant inherit your complaining. They can inherit your assets.
