Not sure if you heard of him but, he is an outspoken expert economist,  political analyst, and author of “Black American Money: How Blacks Can Thrive in a Capitalist Society.”

Well if you haven’t heard of him you probably saw him on CNN, BET, ESPN, FOX, and other national syndicated news shows.  Dr. Boyce spoke in Houston,TX at “The Shrine of The Black Madonna” teaching Black Americans the 10 Commandants of Achieving Wealth in America.”

It wasn’t an empty chair in the room but, luckily I found some where to seat and I was glad I attend this event. I would like to share with you some of thing he spoke about.

  1. Be On Time for whatever is your trying to do
  2. Proper Attire “Dress to Impress”
  3. Study your craft strive to become an expert
  4. Listen, Listen, Listen, & Listen

 

A lot of those things sound like coming sense but, the truth is those type of things go along way in whatever field your in.

Others things that stood of with Dr. Boyce advice was how he wasn’t afraid to stand up for what is right and how he has showed America one voice can make a difference. In 2008 Watkins formed an online protest against Bill O’Riely for his remarks of Michelle Obama and lynching. Later Bill apologized for his remarks about the first lady.

Secondly, Dr. Boyce is advocate for social injustice  he and Russel Simmons wrote President Obama informing the President to end the war on drugs and create new programs to decrease high levels of mass blacks incarceration.

So far in recent news Obama has exonerated 61  of  millions of black Americans institutionalized in the prisons.

Check out part 2 of “Dr. Boyce 10 Commands of Black Wealth things that you will not hear on your cable news tv show.

The Women Empowerment Foundation 1st Annual Dinner was a success.  Of all the speakers my favorite speaker was Yandy from Love & Hip Hop New York. She gave business advice for women in the business world who are trying to build a successful business. Check Out some of the tips she gave.

  1. Turn Your No”s into Yes                                                                                                                                  Ms. Smith said when she graduate with honors from the prestigious Howard University that her she found herself waiting tables. However she prestiance and landed an internship at a management company.  She got the position by just being a go getter. She called multi times about the job each time she heard NO but, that didn’t stop her she kept trying.

 

2  Know Your Wroth Being Willing to Walk Away and Ask For What You Want

Yandy said although she was filing papers and being the coffee lady but, she had anther plan which was law school. She had a meeting with her boss and ask for a position while also letting her know that she anther agenda as well. Long story short the boss lady offer her a position and she ran with it.

3 Don’t Settle for less

She said women especially have this problem setting for less. She said the worst thing you can do is settle because your not growing.

4  You know it’s time to move around when you gotten to comfortable

When things get easy and routines  you gotten comfortable according the Love & Hip Star. Once again being in a comfort zone means your not growing. She said you should always be moving to the next goal or thing you want to try.

 

5 Be Humble

Being Humble is anther thing that helped to her success.  Although she was a college graduate she wasn’t to proud to file papers, get coffee, and make copies. I thought I wish I could be like that. Filing papers, and making coffee is what helped her to meet one of the top television executives Ms. Monia Scott Young.
