It's no secret that these hard times have been even harder for the Black community. Approximately 35 percent of African Americans had no measurable assets in 2009, and 24 percent of these same households had only a motor vehicle. Dennis Kimbro, observing how the weight of the continuing housing and credit crises disproportionately impacts the African-American community, takes a sharp look at a carefully cultivated group of individuals who've scaled the heights of success and how others can emulate them. Based on a seven year study of 1,000 of the wealthiest African Americans, The Wealth Choice offers a trove of sound and surprising advice about climbing the economic ladder, even when the odds seem stacked against you. Readers will learn about how business leaders, entrepreneurs, and celebrities like Bob Johnson, Spike Lee, L. A. Reid, Herman Cain, T. D. Jakes and Tyrese Gibson found their paths to wealth; what they did or didn't learn about money early on; what they had to sacrifice to get to the top; and the role of discipline in managing their success. Through these stories, which include men and women at every stage of life and in every industry, Dennis Kimbro shows readers how to: · Develop a wealth-generating mindset and habits · Commit to lifelong learning · Craft goals that match your passion · Make short-term sacrifices for long-term gain · Take calculated risks when opportunity presents itself

In his previous bestsellers, Think and Grow Rich and What Makes the Great Great, Dennis Kimbro revealed the success secrets of highly touted entrepreneurs, corporate climbers, and Olympic athletes, as well as famous black Americans from George Washington Carver to Bill Cosby, Oprah Winfrey, and Jesse Jackson. In What Keeps Me Standing, he turns to another group of sages and mentors: the grandmothers who have long been the backbone of the African American family and community. Over a period of five years, Kimbro contacted one thousand grandmothers--women from a wide range of backgrounds and locations--asking, "If you had to write a one page letter to your children or the next generation, what would you tell them about life?" Their answers, collected here, show that success in life cannot be measured in terms of wealth and material goods alone. The lives they describe and the advice they proffer capture both a richness in spirit and a strong belief in the power of every individual to take charge of his or her own destiny. In the face of racism, both blatant and subtle, financial struggles, and personal setbacks, black grandmothers have helped their communities in thousands of tangible and intangible ways, providing support, inspiration, and love not only to their own children and grandchildren but also to neighbors, friends, and extended families. Filled with examples of how even the smallest acts of kindness and compassion can make a difference in the world, What Keeps Me Standing is a treasure trove of the wisdom that comes with years of experience, transformation, and growth. It is the perfect gift. From the Hardcover edition.

History confirms that wealth equates to power. Author, entrepreneur, and management consultant Robert Wallace contends that wealth is the one remaining ingredient still missing from the African-American power base. In Black Wealth: Your Road to Small Business Success, Wallace demonstrates that, while ethnic solidarity and political power have increased significantly over the past thirty-five years, the creation of personal wealth within the black community has lagged behind. Wallace argues that the best way to create black wealth is through entrepreneurship—the establishment, growth, and institutionalization of black-owned businesses that keep money within the community and draw new money in from outside. He also identifies the ideal person to establish a business that is both personally lucrative and empowering for the entire community . . . you! But where do you start? How do you create a business? How will you make it grow? How do you overcome such obstacles as racism and sexism? Black Wealth gives you expert guidance. Building upon fifteen years of research, Wallace uses inspiring portraits and case studies of successful African-American and female entrepreneurs. This book identifies and codifies the skills and strategies that were key to the success of these bold pioneers. What emerges is the Wallace 4 Quadrant Model For Entrepreneurial Success™, which you can emulate to achieve a similar outcome in your own professional life. You will learn how to maximize your abilities and capacities, develop a plan for success, ensure that your plan conforms with the hard realities of the business world, and gain know-how from the successes and failures of those who have gone before you. In this indispensable book, you’ll discover: How to prepare yourself to start your own business 17 strategies for entrepreneurial success Ways to find a business niche you can fill Extensive statistics on African-American economic and business conditions 20 traits of successful entrepreneurs If you dream of the independence, financial freedom, and satisfaction of operating your own business; if you search for ways to strengthen your community while brightening your own future; if you feel the need to supplement your energy and determination with the hard-won wisdom and advice of those who have succeeded before you: Start your journey toward your dreams by reading Black Wealth. Praise for Black Wealth "New disciples of the black business crusade will find this book invaluable. This is a must-read for all African Americans looking to take the entrepreneurial plunge."—Black Enterprise magazine "This book should be read by anyone considering entrepreneurship and by those who’ve already started but need help. Either way, your business acumen will be heightened."—The Atlanta Tribune "Bob Wallace’s fifteen-year study of successful minority and female entrepreneurs is a must-read for anyone who believes that entrepreneurship is the engine that drives America . . ."—Jack Kemp, Codirector of Empower America and Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary "This book should be read by aspiring entrepreneurs, educators, politicians, religious leaders, economic development specialists, community activists, and, of course, current entrepreneurs."—Richard Knight, Small Business Incubator
