Minority Leader: How to Lead from the Outside and Make Real Change by Stacey Abrams Leadership is hard. Convincing others—and often yourself—that you possess the answers and are capable of world-affecting change requires confidence, insight, and sheer bravado. Minority Leader is the handbook for outsiders, written with the awareness of the experiences and challenges that hinder anyone who exists beyond the structure of traditional white male power—women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, and millennials ready to make a difference. In Minority Leader, Stacey Abrams argues that knowing your own passion is the key to success, regardless of the scale or target. From launching a company, to starting a day care center for homeless teen moms, to running a successful political campaign, finding what you want to fight for is as critical as knowing how to turn thought into action. Stacey uses her experience and hard-won insights to break down how ambition, fear, money, and failure function in leadership, while offering personal stories that illuminate practical strategies. Stacey includes exercises to help you hone your skills and realize your aspirations. She discusses candidly what she has learned over the course of her impressive career: that differences in race, gender, and class are surmountable. With direction and dedication, being in the minority actually provides unique and vital strength, which we can employ to rise to the top and make real change. . . . . . #hbcu#spelhouse#spelman#morehouse#hbcupride#auc#bookstagram#instabooks#bookstore#spelhousebooks#hbcus#hbcugrad#keepreading
Slow and steady wins the race... in a world where everything we ever been told about success usually revolves around a point in time, you may question your path or second guess what your doing. But stay the course... I salute y'all... I salute u for building towards your business, goals & dream day in & day out. I know it takes consistency, whole lot of perseverance and around the clock hours. Your workflow will be rewarded in due time. It's so much better to do things slow and steady and more importantly the RIGHT way. Taking shortcuts fool you into believing u can achieve success faster but its normally leads down the wrong path or you may have to compromise who you are. Plant your seed and watch it grow, nurture it consistently and It will grow. U could be hustling for 5 years with NO RESULTS and the 6th yr become the BIGGEST thing on the planet. Be consistent... Keep the faith and watch it grow. BE YOUR OWN BOSS! It will beat ANY sized paycheck and that's just icing on the cake bc your Freedom is priceless. #divaism

Lessons I Learned From Drinking by Timothy Fields It was a Fuzzy Navel--peach Schnapps plus orange juice. That's the drink that did it. I was about 14 when my mother let me have a taste, and since then my life has never been the same. I can't tell you how many drinks I have consumed since that first sip; but I can tell you with great certainty that I have spent thousands and thousands of dollars on alcohol, because of alcohol, and as a result of what alcohol does. While I would maybe like to rethink some of the decisions I've made and perhaps cut back on some of the money I've spent during those drinking escapades, I would not change a thing because some of the best and most meaningful life lessons I've learned have been as a result of those. . . . . . #hbcu#spelhouse#spelman#morehouse#hbcupride#auc#bookstagram#instabooks#bookstore#spelhousebooks#hbcus#hbcugrad#keepreading
