The Road To Wealth Reboots With The TGS Financial System's Mobile App

By Kamau Austin

Looking at wealth and income data in the United States illustrates obtaining prosperity in America isn't easy or for the faint of heart. To achieve financial independence and success takes careful planning for most Americans since the majority of us won't inherit wealth.

Less than 10% of Americans are millionaires. About 79% of millionaires claim they didn't obtain their wealth from an inheritance. According to the National Study Of Millionaires, the largest study of its type, only 21% of millionaires in the US received inheritances.

According to CNBC about 8.8% of all Americans are millionaires (or about 20.27 million Americans) . Since only 8.8% of Americans are millionaires this begs the question: how can the other 91.2% of Americans get on the path to wealth creation?

These certainly are sobering statistics to reflect on given the increasingly problematic nature of obtaining affluence in our country. However, entrepreneur Timothy Griggs, has developed an innovative and high-tech system to help most of us achieve financial viability and put us on the road to wealth creation in the United States.

Griggs has an extensive background of over 20 years in real estate investing and is also a mortgage broker. This positions him as an excellent resource since 90% of millionaires in the US invest their money in real estate.  Learn more in the video below...

Beyond Humanities “Tipping Point”
Photo By Salman Hossain Saif On Unsplash

By JV Howard

Let us cut to the chase and confess the obvious…we as a country are long pass the tipping point. “The Tipping” point as articulated by Malcom Gladwell defines a tipping point as the moment of critical mass, the threshold, and the boiling point.

As a reference we have certainty reached a critical mass in the number of people being killed by guns and by police officers with guns, cross incompressible thresholds in the number of children massacred by assault weapons and reached calorific boiling points with sorry a... police officers and politicians.

Politicians who rallied to stand up for Ukraine but laid down when called to protect our children. We are talking policemen who shoot when they should not (in the back, at a traffic stop, sleeping at home, with hands up, and fail to shoot when they should (standing down/ waiting while kids are murdered, when a white racist kills ten black people and walks out with hands up; if this would have been a person of any other color it would have unbelievable massacre. We are talking police officer who repeatedly violates the oath to serve and protect- a boiling point.  In the animal kingdom a lioness or female elephant will sacrifice their life to protect their young, but mankind has evolved to a pathetic threshold of protecting their blue suits/day job rather than save their children.

CONCERNED DAD CREATES APP THAT ENABLES STUDENTS TO LIVESTREAM SCHOOL SHOOTINGS TO ALERT THEIR PARENTS FASTER

Meet James A. Samuel, Jr., a father of two, and a fighter pilot turned tech innovator who has developed a cloud-based app called ANJEL Tech that enables students to alert their parents faster in the event of a school shooting. During an emergency, the app discreetly turns any smartphone into a personal body cam that sends out automatic notifications to their loved ones with live video streaming, audio, and the child’s exact GPS location.

School shootings in America occur at a horrific rate, with 27 occurring so far this year! James says that he came up with the idea to create the app to keep his own children safer in America, given the increasing threats they face in society. Now, however, he wants all children to benefit from it as well.

Here’s how it works:

With a push of a button, the discrete application allows users (students, etc.) to live stream any incident and provide real-time video and audio footage to their loved ones. The app also sends 3 different notifications (text, email, and in-app notifications) to their loved ones alerting them to the video feed. It also sends location updates every 10 seconds to their loved ones viewing their live stream, so they know precisely where their child/student is located and/or moving. As the parents view the live stream, they are also provided personalized directions to help them navigate to their children, and ANJEL Tech securely stores this audio, video, and location information in the cloud for future use and/or downloading.

Ketanji Onyika Brown Jackson, Associate Justice-Designate of the United States Supreme Court 2022 

Congratulations Judge Ketanji Onyika Brown Jackson, associate justice-designate of the United  States Supreme Court by Op-Ed Author Dr. Charles L. Singleton. Yes, “Everything has its own  genesis.” Following the U. S. Senate confirmation, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson’s historical nomination  in 2022 to the U. S. Supreme Court is monumentally important and timely as we continue living in America. The White House, WH. Gov at: Ketanji Brown Jackson to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court |  The White House The Supreme Court cases, October term 2022-2023 are as follows: https://ballotpedia.org/Supreme Court cases, October term 2022-2023 

Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, as you serve on the U. S. Supreme Court, please remember this story, “The Parable of the Pencil.” The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting the pencil into the  box. "There are 5 things you need to know," he told the pencil, "Before I send you out into the world.  Always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best pencil you can be." 1. “You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in someone's hand.” 2. “You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you'll need it to become a better pencil.” 3. “You will be able to correct any mistakes you might make.” 4. “The most important part of you will always be what's inside.” 5. “On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition you must continue to write.” The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose in its heart. --- Go-your-own-way.

Ketanji Brown Jackson's Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated (AKA) sorority sister Aliyah Johnson is optimistic about her upcoming chiropractic career, and the U. S. Supreme Court's fair and timely decisions concerning "We the people of the United States of America." The healthy knowledge that Aliyah demonstrates and explains in her YouTube video is judgmentally sound, without political bias.

Hopefully, Supreme Court Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson's judicial deliberations and decisions will make all Americans feel better as we live daily. ---The Johnson Family Journal Newsletter, Volume 1, Issue 4, March 1, 2022.

Long Island African-American Chamber Launches Free Counseling to Help LI, NYC Companies Qualify for Funding
LIAACC President Phil Andrews


Many small businesses owned by African-Americans and companies in general face difficulties getting  loans, despite strong sales. They may face paperwork problems, insufficient accounts, lack of data, liens, unpaid debts or have owners with credit trouble. As a result, a good company may do badly when it comes to getting financing even from a willing lender. Now there’s a new source of help in overcoming these obstacles for minority-owned and other businesses seeking funding.


The Long Island African-American Chamber of Commerce (LIAACC) has used a portion of a grant to help small business owners to hire TMI & Partners, led by Alvin Hartley, to provide free counseling and assistance to African-American owned and other businesses in Nassau, Suffolk, Queens and Brooklyn to obtain funding

The idea is to give them the help they need to resolve issues and bridge the funding gap that too often stands between small businesses and the funds they need to launch, survive and grow.
