Everything You Need For Thursday Night On Twitter

August 30, 2018 at 9pm EST is the date for our next #blkcreatives chat. Here’s everything you need to know.

TOPIC – All Sides of Supporting Black Business

In honor of August being Black Business Month, we wanted this month's theme to be focused on Black businesses. We hear "support Black Business" all the time but we want to dive deep into examining that statement and discuss the challenges, opportunities, and solutions that are facing Black businesses in today's digital age.

WHAT & WHO: #blkcreatives is a community that advocates for Black genius across Creative industries. We live at the intersection of culture, creativity and community. Every aspect of Black culture is ingrained into our society and yet Black creatives are often overlooked, undervalued, and underemployed. We exist to bridge the gap between culture and careers.

Born in April 2015, our monthly Twitter chat creates discussions that revolve around a specific topic that relates to our personal development and growth as people and professionals.

Meet our guests for this chat:

Cassius Life

Cassius does news and storytelling differently. They provoke, we disrupt, we inform, we uplift. They don't just cover the culture, they are the culture.

As a 21st century digital platform dedicated to telling the unvarnished truth, Cassius gives a daily voice to those much talked about, but rarely talked to. Through original multimedia reporting and sharp commentary, no topic is left unturned—CASSIUS editors fear nothing and no one—they critique and joke, throw shade, and raise hell.

Courtney Garrett

Courtney-Garrett-Headshot.jpg

Courtney spent her career as a social engagement strategist who has led world-class brands and her free time advocating for creative talent across mediums – photography, film, animation, etc. After being laid off from her job earlier this year (you can read more about that on Essence.com), she decided to go all-in with my dream of representing and advocating for creative talent of marginalized and underrepresented groups, thus Capsule Artists was born.

Capsule Artists will be a representation agency creating a space for creatives to tell their stories through art and speech. We are committed to bringing ideas to life that nurture and celebrate the voices of those who feel silenced or unheard by providing creatives of marginalized and underrepresented communities (people of color, women, LGBTQ+, differently abled, etc.) with representation to help them tell stories from their point of view in partnership with brands, businesses, projects and outlets. As we grow, we will host our own events, such as panels and artist showcases throughout NYC and other major cities as well as content creation.

WakandaCon, ONE MusicFest and The Culture LP on Taking Ownership Of Our Creativity

In an interview for their Essence Fest promo run (which was phenomenal this year) Richelieu Dennis mentioned something about the gigantic impact of Black Panther and how that success - while record and world breaking - didn’t necessarily translate over to our communities. BP was not your typical “Black movie” but it’s very apparent that when given the opportunity to express our true capabilities - not only do we succeed but we exceed expectations. How can we keep that same energy for the experiences that we curate?

It prompted us to take a look at how our offline experiences are allowing our communities to have ownership in the cultural conversations that dominate our society. Carolyn Malachi once sang, “White America wants all my Black features, except for my blues - I’m an unwanted creature.” We live in a time where it’s becoming increasingly easier for corporations and brands to profit off of our culture without investing or nurturing in our talent, our ideas and our genius. We had a pop up #blkcreatives Twitter chat with the teams behind WakandaCon, One MusicFest and The Culture LP to discuss how their experiences are changing the game.

Wakandacon-team-blkcreatives

Wakandacon-team-blkcreatives

Your offline experiences are allowing our communities to have ownership in the cultural conversations that dominate our society. Why was it important to you to put together your (respective) experiences?

Lisa Beasley, Producer & Media Relations of WakandaCon: It’s important for us to put togetherWakandaCon because oftentimes black nerds are portrayed as a bad thing and we want to celebrate our successes and our nerdy in the field of technology, gaming, and various platforms.

Michael Tonge, Co-Founder of The Culture LP: Our team felt that a lot of what we needed was really "one person" away. So instead of leaning in on one specific niche, we decided it'd be valuable to forge a diverse offline community of creatives that could really be of service to one another.

Oronike Odeleye, Festival Coordinator of ONE MusicFest: For me, full and complex representations of blackness are a way for us to express our self-determination; to say for ourselves who we are & where we're going as a people. I invest fully in projects that allow our authentic voices to be heard and celebrated.

[Tweet "full representations of blackness are a way for us to express our self-determination - @suiteladyoro"] 

Michael Tonge, Co-Founder of The Culture LP: I felt that. Especially the "full and complex" part of it. So much of what's fed to us digitally is far too static or flat#blkcreatives

J Carter, CEO and Founder of ONE MusicFest: I couldn’t find a open air festival that programmed music and culture the way my peers and I experience it on a daily basis. Black “customers” are often put in a box, but we are so multidimensional. Our music experience ranges from Sade to Migos. I wanted a festival that spoke to that.

ONE Musicfest is more than just MUSIC. It's a cultural oasis that celebrates art, unity, music, diversity, culture and food... definitely food. Join us Sept 8th & 9th in Atlanta, GA! Featuring Cardi B, Nas, Miguel, Big Sean, TI & MORE! pic.twitter.com/zhI9Fzb9Js

— ONE Musicfest (@onemusicfest) July 26, 2018

Black culture = popular culture. but we often don't benefit as much as our counterparts from that influence, especially from an economic perspective. How can we change that?

Oronike, ONE MusicFest: Maaaaaaan! We see this struggle every day in the amount of $, or lack thereof, that sponsors want to put into hip hip concerts that are run by black promoters. Same concept run by white folks =  They love the culture, but wanna pay "others" to curate it.

Lisa, WakandaCon: The creation of more spaces curated by POC and support from POC when those spaces are created!

Mike, The CLP: We should stop prioritizing the mainstream and also be a bit more careful when sharing the sauce online. The barbershop/beauty salon conversations have migrated to social media and we need to realize we're in "mixed company." people are watching just to steal ideas. We're in a space where we need to innovate rapidly but also get gully with trademarks and the cease and desist letters.

[Tweet "We need to innovate rapidly but also get gully with trademarks. - @theculturelp"]

Oronike, ONE MusicFest: I think we have to take a page from Issa Rae's handbook and network laterally. We have the resources in our circles to get stuff done.  We have the know how. We have the authenticity. We just need structural support to help us better work and grow together.

Mike, The CLP: Working across results in vertical movement for sure. It's something we've seen within our own community. I think our partnership withRonald Draper is the best example of that.

J, ONE MusicFest: OWNERSHIP and/or SUPPORT those who are pushing the culture forward. More specifically. Repurpose and redirect our economic prowess. African Americans spend more than $1.2 Trillion dollars a year. If we were more intentional with how we spend our money, we could collectively turn the tables.

The Culture LP blkcreatives

As black marketers and curators, what do you think the mainstream is missing when it comes to creating events for our demographic?

J, ONE MusicFest: Trick question. We are the mainstream. “They” are just good at repackaging it.

Mike, The CLP: Facts. I don't think they're actually MISSING anything. Because their goals are profits, not community. And in that regard they're winning, for now. Both in my role as co-founder for the CLP but as a marketer for big brands and institutions a lot of times we're simply NOT in the conversation. It's like someone planning a birthday party for someone they've never met or hung out with.

J, ONE MusicFest: I would love to see more “lifting as we climb” initiatives. People who are in a position of influence and power to help educate others walking in their footsteps. I.e. Master classes, conferences, mentorship etc. we have to begin pulling each other up.... faster!

Lisa, WakandaCon: I think the mainstream is missing our voice. Too many times, people try to capitalize on what they they are the experiences of POC and horribly miss the mark. What’s missing is us!

Oronike, ONE MusicFest: #1-100 Stop creating events for our demographic! Use those resources and privilege and connections to support POCs who are ALREADY doing that work. There are promoters in every city catering to their community who could really level up with some $ and mentorship.

Mike, The CLP: Instead of trying to recreate what we're already doing, be a resource be a brand sponsored co-working space. I feel like even black folks with $$ make this mistake.#blkcreatives especially when it comes to independent art projects.

J, ONE MusicFest: No race of people has come so far in such a short amount of time. 150 years removes from shackles and today Hip Hop is the most influential genre of music in the world. “People fear what they can’t control” and no one can control our influence.

[Tweet "“People fear what they can’t control” and no one can control our influence. - @jcarterology"]

We've had some major moments in music (cardi b, the carters), film (black panther) and tv (own tv, shonda's new deals) this year. Are

J, ONE MusicFest: I’m ready to see more of this [the discussion happening].

Oronike, ONE MusicFest: ONE MUSICFEST, obviously (go@onemusicfest!) Finally seeing black people divest from#Rkelly (#MuteRKelly via@OffMuteRKelly) and any and everything from Issa Rae and Lena Waithe!

J, ONE MusicFest: Impeachment. I’m looking forward to impeachment. #blkcreatives

Lisa, WakandaCon: MOMENTUM! The support we’ve gained from the public has been a tremendous confidence booster and has propelled us forward to produce a one of a kind event and see it through to completion!#blkcreatives

Mike, The CLP: Honestly Afropunk +ONE MusicFest!

What can audiences look forward to from your upcoming events and how can they support if they can't attend?

Mike, The CLP: I'm looking forward to our 6 year anniversary in collaboration with@culturalcrawl on Saturday, and@OdeToBabel Sunday. rsvp:http://launch.culturehotline.co .can't make it? hit the cash apphttp://cash.me/$theCultureLP or pitch ideas:http://write.theclp.co  as we're revamping our blog.

J, ONE MusicFest: ONE MusicFest is a cultural oasis. Some people love the talent on the stage but most people love the vibrations and energy. It’s our modern day Woodstock. If you cannot attend, you can help by spreading the word and love. OMF will always be “Unity through Music”

Oronike, ONE MusicFest: If you want to support ONE MusicFest but can't attend, buy 10 of your#ATL homies a ticket!! Lol. But for real - spreading the word is invaluable. Retweet. Repost. Forward to a friend. It's 2 days of unapologetic blackness, inclusivity, good vibes and great music.

J, ONE MusicFest: What she said!

Lisa, WakandaCon: So much! Firstly, whatever you’re a nerd about - there’s something that will be for you.  So many community submitted panels rooted in cultural conversation that will be educational, informative, AND entertaining! Video gaming tournament, virtual reality for kids and adults, performances, workshops, and cosplay! Most importantly, a bunch of people who want to celebrate the contributions of black creatives in spaces we rarely are celebrated for!  Also, our marketplace - so many black owned businesses and black entrepreneurs will be vending and making money all together.

Get your tickets for WakandaCon (in Chicago August 3rd-5th), ONE MusicFest (in Atlanta September 8th-9th) and The Culture LP (year-round in NYC).

Jarrod Anderson on The Strong Black Male Persona, Living In The Moment and Real Friends

"I’m a huge music lover. Whenever i’m feeling some type of way, I’m heading to Soundcloud. Sometimes I go listen to Nipsey sometimes, I’m on my Kirk Franklin. Just go with whoever can relate more with how I’m feeling at the moment." As a full time freelance photographer from Florida who's relocated to New York City, Jarrod Anderson knows how stressful transition can be and how important it is to be aware of your anxiety. His involvement in the ‘Dealing With Anxiety’ #blkcreatives Twitter chat was a no-brainer. Read on to find out why.

How do you know when anxiety has gotten out of control and why is that awareness so important?

for me, i can tell anxiety has gotten the best of me when it’s the only thing on my mind when i catch myself thinking about a bunch of “what if” scenarios with factors i have no control over, i have to take a moment + snap myself back to order.

if i’m sitting there tryna predict every possible outcome in life like i’m dr. strange, i’m not giving my full attention to something else in life, often times something i have more control over. i realize i’m literally wasting my time so i use that moment to get back on track.

Duanecia Evans Teach For America blkcreatives chat

"Our stigmas around mental health are killing people and isolating folks to the point where they're taking their own lives. we have to tell our stories so folks don't feel alone. most of us are going through the same things. SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER."

As the Senior Managing Director of Black Community Alliances on Teach For America’s national Public Partnerships Team and Managing Partner and Lead Strategist of Seventh Suite, Duanecia Evans has dedicated her career to bringing voices together who have both the mindsets and means to obliterate social inequity in this generation. It's a purpose that prompts her to make sure she's taking care of herself from the inside out. Her involvement in the ‘Dealing With Anxiety’ #blkcreatives Twitter chat was a no-brainer. Read on to find out why.

How do you know when anxiety has gotten out of control and why is that awareness so important?

I was just talking with my therapist about this today. Making peace is a journey but I will say I remain grateful for what sacrifice has made room for. I wouldn’t be half of who I am today, if I was still being held back by what didn’t serve me.

When I've reached a state of analysis paralysis, it's time to see my therapist and consult my support circle. @MichellCClark, @Jon__Jackson and @MsPackyetti are really good at asking me questions to pull me off the hamster wheel.

Melvin Taylor on Anxiety and Awareness, Seeking Support and Michael Jackson

blkcreatives-chat-melvin-taylor

"My biggest resource would be music. Michael Jackson Lady In My Life will get me right quick. If not that then it's talking to my parents back home in Chicago or my little brother. Things I associate love with helps me get back to myself."

Melvin Taylor II is a 26-year-old Chicago native who moved to New York City and is living the dream and the TV and radio host has no plans of slowing down anytime soon, which he means he's proactive about his mental health. His involvement in the ‘Dealing With Anxiety’ #blkcreatives Twitter chat was a no-brainer. Read on to find out why.

How do you know when anxiety has gotten out of control and why is that awareness so important?

I know it’s gotten out of control when I’m stopping myself from putting out creative work, networking with people due to intimidation, feeling like I am lesser than anyone else, or just in an overall DND mode where everything feels like it’s crashing down.

That awareness is key because knowing you’re feeling it or going through it is the first step to being able to step beyond it. If you’re not aware of how you’re feeling you won’t be able to gauge what moves should be made or how you should respond when it’s your time.

Dr. Joy Harden on Different Forms of Anxiety, Shifting Your Perspective and Therapy For Black Girls Resources

Therapy-For-Black-Girls-Dr.Joy-blkcreatives-chat

“When we look at the world we live in and the significant ways Black women are often mistreated and abused, there is a lot of healing that needs to take place for us to really have full and joyful lives." (via Bustle)

As the Founder of Therapy For Black Girls (including the national directory of Black women therapists), Dr. Joy Harden Bradford works relentlessly to ensure that Black women are taking care of their mental health. Her involvement in ‘Dealing With Anxiety’ #blkcreatives Twitter chat was a no-brainer. Read on to find out why.

How do you know when anxiety has gotten out of control and why is that awareness so important?

Some of the ways you can tell is when it prevents you from going after opportunities you’d like to go after or if it interferes with functioning (frequently missing work, isolating yourself, etc.). The awareness is important because it can help you to develop strategies to minimize the impact it has on your life.

Finding some good mindfulness and meditation practices to do regularly might be very helpful. Yes! The key is to practice regularly so that when you really need it, it’s easier to access.

Joi-Marie Mckenzie On Fortitude, Expectations, and Keeping Priorities In Check

Unfortunately there's no one size fits all answer. Still, the relationships, romantic or otherwise, that give you peace and not chaos; that fill you up and not drain you;  that fortify and don't undermine -- those are the relationships that we should pursue.

As the author of The Engagement Game, we believe that the accomplished media maven Joi-Marie McKenzie is just getting started. She was a guest for our June #blkcreatives Twitter chat on ‘Love, Lust & Creativity’, read on to find out why.

For many Creatives, it’s a struggle to balance their love life with work. What are some key things we should keep in mind when allocating our time?


If you want a fulfilling love life, you have to pursue it with the same optimism, passion and vigor as you do with your creative work in order for them to succeed. A lot of people get frustrated with their dating life but they're the same ones complaining they're no good men or women out there. Change your expectations, and it'll change your return.

Summertime is prime time for distractions in love. Is it possible to stay focused? If so, how?


Summer can be a prime time for distractions, or it can be a prime time for opportunities! Allow yourself the time to explore those so-called "distractions."
There's tons of strategies to prioritize your social life and your work life. I use my calendar -- synced to every device -- religiously. Not only blocking off times to write since I'm an author, but also blocking out times for dates along with activities with friends and family.
And the most important thing is that I treat both -- work and play -- as sacred. Neither is more special than the other; they're both priorities.


Let me give you an example: I had just finished interviewing Ava Duvernay about the latest season of "Queen Sugar." As I'm walking out, she invites me to this private dinner being held afterward for select press.
With a tilt of her head and slight disappointment in her voice she asked, "So you're not coming to the dinner?"


Seriously, who would say no to that?!?! It's Ava Duvernay!!!!


But I knew I had a date with my boyfriend. And although he wouldn't care if I bailed -- because hello! It's Ava Duvernay -- I treated our time together as important.
So I told Ava, "I'm sorry but I have a dinner with my boyfriend planned."
She looked at me and said, "Oh yeah, girl. You have to go to that."
Because as creatives we all understand the importance of working hard, but playing just as hard.

Kiran David On Managing Distractions, Priorities and Questions That Need Answers

The best way to stay focused is to remain clear on what you want and how you'll obtain it. Whether through effective planning, relentless effort, strategic networking or even a combination of them all. You can remind yourself daily of your goals, dreams and ideas. By setting daily reminders or reflecting you can keep yourself focused and motivated from the slew of distractions life has to offer. Remember, as a creative the biggest thing holding you back is you!


As a critically acclaimed writer and relationship counselor featured on BET, Fusion, Bossip, Baller Allert and more, Kiran David has already made an impact at just 21-years-old in the areas of love and relationships. He was a guest for our June #blkcreatives Twitter chat on 'Love, Lust & Creativity', read on to find out why.
Whether we know it or not, relationships have an impact on how we work. How do we make sure we’re pursuing the ones that push us forward?


By implementing regular self awareness checks we can drastically improve the quality of relationships we enter, entertain and maintain. Asking questions like; is this person giving or taking from me? Is this person conducive to my growth as a person? Do you trust this person? Can I learn from this person?
What is the energy like around this person?
For many Creatives, it’s a struggle to balance their love life with work. What are some key things we should keep in mind when allocating our time?


The best way to allocate time is to create a list of priorities. By understanding and effectively communicating to a significant other or interest where your priorities are then you can save a lot of confusion as well as keep yourself clear on what is important to you. Without a clear understanding of your own priorities, emotions and inconsistency will make allocating time effectively much more difficult.

Kevin Carr On Intentionality, Misconceptions and Reciprocity In Relationships,

I think we have to be intentional in pursuing relationships. We do that by first being self aware and by being able to identify what are core values are. Once we do this we're better equipped to pursue the type of relationships that fit us. I also think in terms of work and for creatives it's important that we don't fall into space of pursuing relationships selfishly as in only looking to see what we can gain. The best relationships are full of reciprocity.
Kevin Carr is an accomplished Author, Speaker and TV Host/Personality. With over a decade of experience, his perspective on dating offers a practical road-map to help navigate being single while learning to create the relationship you desire. Of course he was a no brainer for our 'Love, Lust & Creativity' Twitter chat. Read on to find out why.


For many Creatives, it’s a struggle to balance their love life with work. What are some key things we should keep in mind when allocating our time?
The biggest misconception many in our generation face is that it can't be done. I firmly believe that you can excel at both love and work. In fact it's proven that the right relationship can push you forward.
It's about being organized and staying in the moment and when it's time to work really working. Being able to block out social media, cell phones, internet surfing to ensure that we complete the tasks we need to complete on a daily basis. It's eye opening how much time we actually have for other things when we eliminate unnecessary distractions.
Summertime is prime time for distractions in love. Is it possible to stay focused? If so, how?
It's definitely possible to stay focused. I found that by doing a few things you can stay on track:
+ Keep the big picture in mind. ( what do you ultimately wish to produce?)
+ Enjoy the moment but don't live for the moment ( Summer comes every year and it only last 3 months.)
+ Focus on genuine connections rather than fleeting interactions.

Valerie Robinson of Unapologetically Us On Discernment, Energy and Your Idea Of Balance

Time is precious and very limited; be selfish with it. We tend to allocate the most time according to where our priorities lie. Remember that "no" is a complete sentence. Also, look into where time is being wasted throughout the day and plug in those areas with productivity, which can include making time for loved ones. Balance may seem mythical, but everyone's idea of it looks different. As a creative, it is important to know that you are deserving of love and life outside of work. You truly can have it all - if it's what you truly want.

As the Creator of Unapologetically Us, Valerie Robinson has created a haven that celebrates the fullness of Black women. Valerie doesn't just write about relationships, she believes in them. Her involvement in the ‘Love, Lust and Creativity’ #blkcreatives Twitter chat was a no-brainer. Read on to find out why.

Whether we know it or not, relationships have an impact on how we work. How do we make sure we’re pursuing the ones that push us forward?

Relationships absolutely have an effect on how we function on a personal level and in business. As a married woman, although my husband's support means so much, it was not going to stop me from moving forward. He has not always understood the process, but it came gradually with time as the vision gained more clarity. The key to pursuing the ones that push us forward is in our discernment. Look at where we are drawing our energy from, and who is draining and holding you back. Surround yourselves with dreamers, doers and go-getters! That will instantly motivate and catapult you to the next level of your course. Those who want you to win will not sit back and watch you slack off and fail.

Summertime is prime time for distractions in love. Is it possible to stay focused? If so, how? 

Absolutely. Focus takes discipline, but at the same time, be careful not to deprive yourself of self-care, quality time with loved ones, and "showing up" in every aspect of your life. If there is a thing that you truly want bad enough, you will put in the work - no matter the season. Take control and manage your time and set boundaries, even with loved ones. Don't let anyone talk you out of your mission.

Tonya Rapley On Using Your Creativity To Win, Solutions and The Energy Of Money

"Focus on solutions. Focus on gratitude and everything that you have working in your advantage. Understand that as a creative you are not limited to artistic expressions of creativity. Get creative with ways to generate more money. You can wallow in sorrow or get to creating solutions, both take energy and it's up to you to decide which one you want to put your energy into."

As a millennial money expert and founder of My Fab Finance, Tonya Rapley doesn’t just talk about being an advocate for our financial well being as creatives. She lives it. Having completely transformed her life through a positive mindset, hard work, and applying what she teaches to her own life, her involvement in the ‘Real Life Money Strategies for #blkcreatives' Twitter chat was a no-brainer. Read on to find out why.

You've spoken before about 'The Energy of Money' - can you explain what that means? 
We often like to place money in a different category in our lives, but the way you do life is the way you do money. If you have a negative outlook on life, it's likely your money will reflect that negative state of mind. If you're stingy with money or your time, it's likely your bank account will reflect that too. Positive vibes create positive experiences, account balances included.
Money is one of the most important relationships that we have. How did you develop a positive and proactive relationship? 
My relationship with money changed when I changed my energy. When I moved from being a victim to a conquerer. I stopped looking at how everything was being "done" to me and took my responsibility for the situation I was in, particularly financially. Once I came clean about where I was messing up and that my financial situation was a result of all of those bad decisions, it enabled me to become solution oriented and make better decisions for myself and with my money.

Carl Joseph-Black on Measurements Of Faith, The True Cost of Time, and Your Future Self

"Money is a measurement of faith & communication. The way you manage your money shows others how responsible, and effective you can be. PS: 'Others' includes our future selves."

As the founder of RaisingBenjamin.com, Carl Joseph-Black shares insights on Capital Markets and Wealth Management that are as easy to learn as a Drake verse. (How's a little literal money talk for that IG caption?) His involvement in the ‘Real Life Money Management Strategies for #blkcreatives' Twitter chat was a no-brainer. Read on to find out why.

Money is one of the most important relationships that we have. How did you develop a positive and proactive relationship?

My father and I would read the Wall Street Journal together as a child. We would use different companies as examples of how to run a business. I fell in love with investing and at 14 he allowed me to pick stocks and build my own portfolio. I've been hooked ever since.
How can someone stay financially healthy even when money is low?
Time management & low livable overhead. The more you look at your time as an investment that will yield returns in the future, the more effective you will be in using that time. Keep all of your costs low and stay flexible, every opportunity (paid or not) is a way for you to get closer to your creative & financial goals.

Dominique Broadway On Using Money As A Tool, Money Dates and Defining Yourself

"It will never matter how much money you actually make if you do not manage it well. This is why it is beyond vital for #blkcreatives to put effort into learning how to effectively manage their money so they are not always living paycheck to paycheck or gig to gig, and instead can create a lifestyle where money is the tool to help you live your ideal life instead of being your biggest stressor."

Money is one of the most important relationships that we have. How did you develop a positive and proactive relationship?
Believe it or not, your relationship with money starts to develop when you are child. Those very first interactions that you see your parents have with money (negative or positive) will impact the relationship that you have with money. To improve this relationship, you first want to determine what your first experience with money was and how its affecting you now. Then take steps to change the mindset, this can be something as simple as scheduling "money dates" with your self, so you can be more aware of your finances and what you need to do to change them, or hiring a financial coach or planner to help you take the first steps to change your money mindset and start reaching your financial goals.
 
How can someone stay financially healthy even when money is low?

When your money is low, it can have a huge impact on your confidence and self-esteem. However, if your money is low, you have to remember that you are not defined by your financial situation. You can also begin to look for a part-time job or other sources to increase the money you have coming in.

Anthony Copeman on Income Diversity, New Realities and Going High When Funds Go Low

"When money is low, your creativity should be on an all-time high. Complaining when money is low will not yield any fruit. You should monetize those gifts and talents that people compliment you on every day and those that got you hired."

As the Founder of Financial Lituation, Anthony Copeman is helping millennials reinvent their finances + reimagine their freedom. His involvement in the ‘Real Life Money Management Strategies for #blkcreatives' Twitter chat was a no-brainer. Read on to find out why.

Why do you think money management is important for #blkcreatives?

Money management is important for #blkcreatives because it offers us the opportunity to live on our own terms. When we manage our money effectively, we can provide a new reality for ourselves. The new reality focuses on what we want to create and build, and not circled around the bills we have created.

Money is one of the most important relationships that we have. How did you develop a positive and proactive relationship?

Growing up, I was fascinated with entrepreneurship and living on my own terms. I had to shift my mindset from simply being a consumer to being an owner as it related to my finances, but more importantly, my freedom.

How can someone stay financially healthy even when money is low?

A great way to reinvent your finances is to strive for income diversity. You don't want to be dependent on simply one income stream, but rather have multiple income streams that will help you reach your goals.
