AuthorHouse, Jan 18, 2005 - Business & Economics
African Americans can benefit more fully from what the land of the free has to offer if we change our poor behavior, our bad habits and revitalize our communities ourselves.

The rest of America is so far removed from the guilt of slavery they no longer listen to our cries of racism.Today, we have to voice complaints and make demands with our wallets.If we want advancement as a race, we must first address the correlation between our cultural behaviors and the economic inferiority we have as minorities in order to improve our situations.We have to get our race in order through higher education, parenting, discipline and sacrifice, which facilitate wealth building.
Get Out of Your Own Way addresses core socio-economic factors that adversely affect African Americans.Our cultural circumstances lead too many of us down a path of insufficiency, poverty and life-long struggle that is ultimately hindering the African American race from advancing as a whole.
Chyon Simmons, a MBA graduate and financial accountant, is in much demand for his clear, lively presentation on economic literacy education for low to middle income Americans.He lives with his wife Vanessa, daughter Sasha and son Savon in Riverdale Georgia.
