Sounds like my story! Promoted, lost 15 pounds, got involved with angel investing, and bought my first investment property! Hasn’t been all easy as my wife and I are having some challenges conceiving (and I would trade everything for this one to be my only good news), but there’s some positive keeping us going. 🙏🏾

Thank you! Congrats are in order to you as well 👏🏾 And definitely agreed! I think that’s the biggest thing that’s missing in a lot of conversations within the Black community. And outside of ppl in poverty, economic empowerment can be controlled by you. despite being nowhere near a “finish line” we are in a time for the most wealth advancement in a long time, and many should be proactive on that.

So.. my husband and I live across the country from my family, including my young nieces. We haven’t seen them since before COVID and are not seeing anyone inside who is not vaccinated in our life, and this has not been a problem. We made a plan to vacation with my family to see them again this summer. My BIL is refusing to get vaccinated. Everyone else is vaccinated. My parents and sister aren’t happy about it but feel there is nothing they can do.
