YOU KNOW HOW I'M ALWAYS ASKING YOU to #Gimme20Dollars
but you be like: 'You tripping.' But then I be like, "No, I'm serious cuz. As a #BlackEntrepreneur
if I can get 1000 people to #Gimme20Dollars
I could expand and hire people and like do shit." But then you be like, 'You play too much!' and I be like "No, like I'm serious if 2000 people #Gimme20Dollars
I could really expand and do BIG SHIT.
If each of the 3+ million people who came to this Instagram page over the past 30 days to read about the BEAUTIFUL LIFE of #KimPorter
had paid $1, I could really expand, hire people, build a #AfricanAmerican
BuzzFeed and we could all do big shit. Or even a DIME.
That's why I liked Kim so much. She and Eboni and Nicole understood their worth as #BlackBusinesswomen
when they started 3BrownChicks. So many #BlackOwned
businesses can't seem to get the SUPPORT we need to survive.
I was IN MY FEELINGS like that tonight when I went to a #startup
networking event at #Microsoft
in Times Square when I pulled a #kanyewest
I didn't SNATCH the mic but I did go on an EXTREME rant. Seriously. RANT! (One guy actually came up and prayed for me ON THE SPOT at the end of the event.) But as fate would have it the FOUNDER of #Venmo
was on the panel. He either felt sorry for me or really got my vision but he's invited me to meet with him. Like he's serious. He even texted me first.
As December 15 approaches and we get ready to honor her for #KimPorterDay
this page will likely see even more traffic. It makes me happy because she deserved all the love y'all been given. We'll also say GOODBYE to #McKenzieAdams
- 9-year-old who committed SUICIDE after being #BULLIED
on that day so it's gonna be a busy day for TISSUES around here
Regardless of what happens next - or doesn't - with Venmo I just wanted to shout him out for giving a sister hope. Start-ups in NYC raised $9 BILLION this year but only ONE PERCENT went to #BlackStartUps
Hey, I'm okay with 1% CAN A SISTER GET ONE PERCENT?! But seriously, please remember to support #blackownedbusiness
We really need y'all! - DC LIVERS aka The Fly on Every Wall
