Name It: 17mul: cosmic-noir: blackgirlshit: dickprintbandit: flyandfamousblackgirls: “How A Homeless Single Mother Became A Millionaire in 18 Months” After a separation from her husband, Elon Bomani and her newborn son moved into a women’s shelter. She says, “I found myself homeless because I had given up my power. I bought into the idea that men were better at math than women even though I had graduated with two degrees. I was programmed that men are supposed to be the providers and handle the checkbooks.” “I went to the library and punched in millionaire and I read every single book on biographies of millionaires, anything dealing with money, stocks, bonds, real estate, commodities trading, e-business, taxes, you name it.” Bomani’s first priority was to leave the shelter and move into her own home. Though she had $36 dollars in her checking account, she knew her dream could come true. With the advice of her father, she studied real estate guru Carleton Sheets’ “no money down programs.” She found a lender that would finance 100 percent of her home loan. She asked the seller to pay closing costs on the $125,000 home and walked away from the closing with a $625 dollar check. Without a job, Bomani says, this was just the beginning of her journey. “I thought creatively. I rented out my room. By renting out one of my rooms, that gave me half the mortgage, the other half was her (roommate) deposit. “I didn’t have to pay my first mortgage until a month and a half later. With a new wealth consciousness, she recognized the housing market was profitable at the time and then took equity out of her home to invest in other properties. “I did speculative real estate investing. I went to new developments and put a down payment on property to hold it until it closed. The property closed within a year and it had already increased in excess of $100,000. So I invested approximately $20,000 ($5,000 on four properties) using cash advances from credit cards, not even my money. I walked out of the deal with $400,000.” “I accumulated over 16 pieces of real estate property over the course of three years. In doing so, that gave me a net worth of $2 million dollars and I was able to live off the positive cash flow of the real estate. “Being a millionaire, it’s a formula to it. If you study it and practice it, you’ll become it.” Today, Bomani owns and operates four companies and has a book out, titled: “Dynamic Diva Dollars.” WOW! Salute a Real One When You See On 😵😵😵 goals 😎 inspiration I dont mean to denigrate her experience but this is all wrong. There is no formula to success or being rich. This is false and is constantly being preached by pro-capitalists who think that the poor are simply lazy/doing the wrong thing and that the rich are culturally, morally, and cognitively superior. YES, having goals, getting an education, changing bad habits, and studying successful people can all SLIGHTLY INCREASE THE PROBABILITY of you succeeding but it is in no way formulaic in the sense that if you do X thing you will become rich. As a sedulent student of economics, the data show that most rich people are rich because there family was rich or because they got lucky. People do not like this conclusion but a lot of data support this. I would recommend reading Nasim Taleb’s book called “The Black Swan” which shows you just how much randomness and luck play a role in our everyday lives. I would also read Daniel Kahneman’s masterpiece “Thinking Fast and Slow” which shows you in several parts of the book how Ceo’s, companys, and many great figures got to where they were because sheer luck.  Don’t believe me ? Well let’s look at Elon Bomani (the single mother this post is about).  “she recognized the housing market was profitable”   well here is a sign of luck. Sure she recognized the housing market was profitable (i doubt most people who claim they know when something is good or bad in the economy since the economy isn’t the easiest thing to read but thats a subject for another time) but had the market been bad due to her being homeless during the wrong time (luck) she wouldn’t have been successful or as successful. Also her finding someone who would give her credit given her homelessness  and her being black and female is not only unlikely but super lucky of her. I have more to say but frankly I won’t cus this post is too long , but the reason why I am against this kind of rhetoric isn’t because i want to silence a WOC and her experiences - it’s because this kind of rhetoric is harmful and just not true because 1. most of the rich people you’d study had a lot of privilege to begin with 2. most really rich people had some aspect of luck play into their lives (remember they are outliers to begin with)  3. telling poor people to simply glorify the rich and their habits implies many negative things that aren’t true 4. capitalism is a system that depends on people to be on the bottom. even if everyone tried to do this (her method) and even if it did work (it doesnt but lets pretend it does) …. it would fail since you can’t all have millionaires. you NEED poor people under capitalism. at least in america. idk i hate being negative on people’s success stories but i also dont want bad information being spread around. im happy she became successful but she is one out of a million people who try to do the same and fail. Im happy for her though.

“How A Homeless Single Mother Became A Millionaire in 18 Months”
After a separation from her husband, Elon 
Bomani and her newborn son moved into a women’s shelter. She says, “I 
found myself homeless because I had given up my power. I bought into the
 idea that men were better at math than women even though I had 
graduated with two degrees. I was programmed that men are supposed to be
 the providers and handle the checkbooks.”
“I went to the library and punched in 
millionaire and I read every single book on biographies of millionaires,
 anything dealing with money, stocks, bonds, real estate, commodities 
trading, e-business, taxes, you name it.”
Bomani’s first priority was to leave the 
shelter and move into her own home. Though she had $36 dollars in her 
checking account, she knew her dream could come true. With the advice of
 her father, she studied real estate guru Carleton Sheets’ “no money 
down programs.” She found a lender that would finance 100 percent of her
 home loan. She asked the seller to pay closing costs on the $125,000 
home and walked away from the closing with a $625 dollar check. Without a
 job, Bomani says, this was just the beginning of her journey.
“I thought creatively. I rented out my room. 
By renting out one of my rooms, that gave me half the mortgage, the 
other half was her (roommate) deposit. “I didn’t have to pay my first 
mortgage until a month and a half later.
With a new wealth consciousness, she 
recognized the housing market was profitable at the time and then took 
equity out of her home to invest in other properties. “I did speculative
 real estate investing. I went to new developments and put a down 
payment on property to hold it until it closed. The property closed 
within a year and it had already increased in excess of $100,000. So I 
invested approximately $20,000 ($5,000 on four properties) using cash 
advances from credit cards, not even my money. I walked out of the deal 
with $400,000.”
“I accumulated over 16 pieces of real estate 
property over the course of three years. In doing so, that gave me a net
 worth of $2 million dollars and I was able to live off the positive 
cash flow of the real estate.
“Being a millionaire, it’s a formula to it. If you study it and practice it, you’ll become it.”
Today, Bomani owns and operates four companies and has a book out, titled: “Dynamic Diva Dollars.”


WOW!

Salute a Real One When You See On

😵😵😵 goals

I dont mean to denigrate her experience but this is all wrong. There is no formula to success or being rich. This is false and is constantly being preached by pro-capitalists who think that the poor are simply lazy/doing the wrong thing and that the rich are culturally, morally, and cognitively superior. YES, having goals, getting an education, changing bad habits, and studying successful people can all SLIGHTLY INCREASE THE PROBABILITY of you succeeding but it is in no way formulaic in the sense that if you do X thing you will become rich. As a sedulent student of economics, the data show that most rich people are rich because there family was rich or because they got lucky. People do not like this conclusion but a lot of data support this. I would recommend reading Nasim Taleb’s book called “The Black Swan” which shows you just how much randomness and luck play a role in our everyday lives. I would also read Daniel Kahneman’s masterpiece “Thinking Fast and Slow” which shows you in several parts of the book how Ceo’s, companys, and many great figures got to where they were because sheer luck.  Don’t believe me ? Well let’s look at Elon Bomani (the single mother this post is about).  “she recognized the housing market was profitable”   well here is a sign of luck. Sure she recognized the housing market was profitable (i doubt most people who claim they know when something is good or bad in the economy since the economy isn’t the easiest thing to read but thats a subject for another time) but had the market been bad due to her being homeless during the wrong time (luck) she wouldn’t have been successful or as successful. Also her finding someone who would give her credit given her homelessness  and her being black and female is not only unlikely but super lucky of her. I have more to say but frankly I won’t cus this post is too long , but the reason why I am against this kind of rhetoric isn’t because i want to silence a WOC and her experiences - it’s because this kind of rhetoric is harmful and just not true because 1. most of the rich people you’d study had a lot of privilege to begin with 2. most really rich people had some aspect of luck play into their lives (remember they are outliers to begin with)  3. telling poor people to simply glorify the rich and their habits implies many negative things that aren’t true 4. capitalism is a system that depends on people to be on the bottom. even if everyone tried to do this (her method) and even if it did work (it doesnt but lets pretend it does) …. it would fail since you can’t all have millionaires. you NEED poor people under capitalism. at least in america. idk i hate being negative on people’s success stories but i also dont want bad information being spread around. im happy she became successful but she is one out of a million people who try to do the same and fail.
