Last week, I attended the Black Enterprise 2018 Entrepreneurs Summit. And my absolute favorite session of all was the one I attended where MC Lyte spoke.
I’ve always admired MC Lyte for her authenticity and for uncompromisingly representing herself with ultimate strength and class. So, I was eager to hear what she had to say.
To be honest, I was not prepared for what she shared with us during the session. What she shared was very surprising - and extremely hopeful at the same time.
Lyte explained that there was a point when she felt so lost and needed help so desperately in one area of her life that she prayed and asked God to send her someone.
And no. It was not a man.
She asked God to send her someone…to help her get her finances right.
She realized that she wasn’t able to figure out how to get to where she wanted to be financially. So she sought help.
This legendary, super successful, intelligent and self-evolving lady realized that she needed help with her money. She needed help reaching her big money goals.
And guess what? The help she sincerely asked for and desired showed up.
During that session we met Lyte and the financial expert who helped her transform her money and life in ways she had never imagined.
I was so excited to hear this because this is exactly what I help my clients do. I help them transform their lives and money journey.
Hearing MC Lyte’s story was so hopeful to me because it confirmed for me that there are more and more Black professional women just like Lyte who are willing to take action on their dreams.
She asked for help, and when it appeared, she participated by taking action towards her dreams of financial abundance and success. And Lyte listened to her financial coach.
Lyte said that she could never give her coach enough credit for helping her turn her finances around and credited her coach’s guidance with creating her money and business transformations.
We can learn a lot from MC Lyte:
What about you? Are you doing everything you can to invest in your financial future?
The longer you wait to take action, the longer you will stay where you are and keep doing what you’re doing.
Or worse yet - you will fall even farther behind on your dreams.
Are you making excuses about money and time to avoid getting the coaching and support that you need?
The thing is, we always seem to find the money for that new pair of shoes, that new handbag, that new hairdo, etc., right? It really all boils down to a matter of priorities, doesn't it?
Each day that you make an excuse is another day that leaves you feeling increasingly more hopeless about ever achieving your big financial dreams.
Instead of making excuses, you could be taking actions towards – and living – your big dreams. Just like MC Lyte (and me).
It really is true: “Time waits for no one.”
