18-year-old Rawlin Lee Tate Jr. has a lot to celebrate. With a 4.7 GPA, the high school senior is the first African-American male to be valedictorian in Woodland High School's history. Holding the highest grade point average in his class also helped him earn over 1.2 million dollars in scholarships.
Over the course of his high school career, Tate took 21 advanced placement courses and never earned anything lower than an A. “My lowest grade from my high school career was a 98,” Tate told Because of Them We Can.
Recently named a Georgia Scholar by the Georgia Department of Education, Tate's academic resume earned him 14 college acceptance letters to schools like Ohio State, Florida A&M University, Georgia Tech, Morehouse, Howard, Rose Hulman, Hampton, University of Georgia, North Carolina A&T and Tuskegee amongst others.
When he wasn’t studying or doing homework to maintain his A average, he was busy with extra curricular activities and school related clubs. In addition to playing two varsity sports, being a member of the band and being inducted into seven national honor societies, Tate made time to hone his musical skills as a concert pianist and recording artist.
To celebrate his accomplishments, Tate posted a remix of Soulja Boy’s “Pretty Boy Swag” to his Twitter account. In just 24 hours it already has close to 250,000 views. His opening line set the tone for the remake. . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“This right here is my swag, 4.7 GPA I just secured the bag.” A question we always get when these stories go viral is "how did s/he do it" Its clear that one thing the Tate did often was raise his hand for help.
“I would stay extra for tutoring a lot, and I was never afraid to ask questions in class,” Tate said.
He credits his success to God and his ability to stay focused. “My advice to others is to always stay humble and do your best, and don’t get preoccupied with competing.”

#wisdomwednesday Here is a piece of wisdom I have taken to heart from Rachel Hollis’ Book “Girl Stop Apologizing”.
“There are a hundred ways to learn how to swim and one very easy way to drown, and that is being unwilling to admit you’re drowning in the first place.” We cannot do it all but we can have it all with help. Hope your day was amazing!
We hear it all the time "Don't Compare Yourself to Anyone Else". But with social media it's hard not to, you can scroll through post after post of peoples "lives" comparing it to yours. What has helped me when I get into that space is I begin to ask myself, what does it take to be that person What sacrifices do they have to make What trials or obstacles did they have to endure and overcome along the way How hard do they work every day to maintain their level of success or life style And instead of comparing, I shift to inspiration, I let them inspire me to go harder at achieving MY dreams/goals. #dontcompare, #dreamkiller, #stayinyourlane, #nocomparison, #focusonyourself, #dreamchasers, #inspiration, #wisdomwednesday

Two of Pentacles
The curious and playful ferret maneuvers atop a precarious arrangement of coins and gold nuggets. It is able to deftly sense minute changes in momentum, skillfully and gracefully keeping itself atop. The Two of Pentacles represents the ability to balance priorities and shift attentions quickly and effectively, particularly with finances, or a situation in which such actions are necessary. You are doing an excellent job of balancing these different priorities, and you can take on whatever life throws at you; but this Two reminds you that the line between coping with these demands and losing control is thin. You need to manage your time, energy and resources carefully so you do not lose your balance. The Two of Pentacles invites you to manage your time and your priorities carefully. Your workload is high right now, and to get everything done, you need to stay focused and productive. You may benefit from a ‘to do’ list, better calendar management and a stricter schedule.

Has anyone ever gotten that disgusted look when someone offers you a piece of cake and you politely turn it down because you don't eat like that Or someone wants to talk about random reality TV shit and you try to converse but eventually admit you don't watch much TV That look is interesting because it isn't so much towards you as it is towards the darkness that someone feels when they know. They know they aren't healthy or that they mindlessly waist time distracting themselves from a shit existence. It's lonely up here but don't let that pull you back down.

I know I missed #WisdomWednesday but I still wanted to share something that I felt someone out there needed to hear. I played Broken and Beautiful by @kellyclarkson for my students today and it really hit my heart that we all go through some tough s***, and we need to know that the struggles are part of us. They don’t define us, but they are part of our story, and if we allow it, we become stronger because of them. #brokenandbeautiful
There are several ways to determine if your investing in the right market but on the top of my list for rentals are Vacancy rates and for flips it would be days on market ( meaning how many days did it take the other homes in the area to sale) numbers don’t Lie y’all stay in touch with your market and know what it’s doing. Master that and you will become more confident in you investing choices. .
