One of the things I had to face as I moved from six-figures to my first million was the need for capital.
Defy Impossible, Inc. is a cash-based business. We’ve never had a business loan. We are not a certified minority-owned business and we don’t have any angel investors. In truth, I have been very proud that we never had to go with our “hand out” begging for money. I became an entrepreneur to make my mark and make a difference—not to pay high interest rates or answer to someone because they could front cash.
Looking back, I can see that had I had working capital for things like hiring full time-staff or paying for proven marketing or buying furniture for our home-based business, I would not have had to work so hard.
Historically, Black People have been preyed upon by lenders, redlined for home loans, and over-looked by White venture capitalists. We haven’t always been taught how to pitch so that we could secure the first round of investment money from family and friends. Most of us have been the funding source for family members in need. The idea of asking them for money to “invest” in our business dream seemed ludicrous.
Sound familiar, sis?
In truth, my pride in being a cash-based business is a historical cultural wound of being turned down, preyed upon, and exploited by lending institutions, government bureaucracy, and just good old fashion systemic racism.
Global Leaders Organization (GLO) is not that past.
GLO provides a syndicated network of sponsored, associated, and affiliated investment portals where GLO members have access to raising debt and equity financing in order to leverage and scale to the 7-figure mark and beyond. This is a new model in the ENTIRE marketplace where we don’t have to be afraid of the gatekeepers that have shunned and punished us in the past. With GLO, we have direct access to funding sources that WE get to vet. WE get to watch them, learn from them and develop a trust that historically is unprecedented in the marketplace—maybe even in human history worldwide.

I love you, sis. Perhaps it’s time to heal the historical wounds that make some of us deeply distrust of lending institutions or the “country-club” exclusivity of venture capital culture. GLO is a new platform. It’s a new day. Perhaps it’s the right season to trust a new opportunity.
Let me hear from you…
With all the love my heart can hold…
