I have a passion for helping others. If you know anything about my story then you know I grew up with a lot of challenges and a lot of personal sadness. I have been receiving help from others for a very long time now. I think it is important to give back which has never created a problem for me, including now. I have decided to take 100% of the profits I have amassed from my book sales and give it to small black businesses in my community, especially those owned by women. Don't worry I have not gone crazy. I am sowing a seed and not doing anything I have not thought through.
The first business I identified is a small cupcake shop in East Point, GA. I only know it by driving by in a predominantly African American section of town. My mother loved to bake so I thought this first blessing would be done in honor of her. So very soon I will ambush this small cupcake shop with video in hand. I will learn more about them, hopefully fit in a tasting or two, then leave a financial love token. Of course I will share the video with all of you. Perhaps you will visit this small shop and get some cupcakes to take home.
My hope is what I am doing will spread. Perhaps this cupcake shop will pay it forward one day. In any case, I am trusting my heart. We all need to support one another especially now. I am willing to do my part to get something positive and tangible going in a community I love and believe in. I will continue giving until my profits run out.
Won't you help me by identifying other small businesses who might need similar exposure and blessing? LADETRA@NOBLEINSIGHT.COM
