first-time homeownership even though they did not win the grand prize. We believe in the thousands of people who enter the BE Financial Fitness Contest each year, including the 75-plus winners who have won more than $150,000 combined. We believe in the hundreds of entrepreneurs, executives, and professionals who attend the Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit, Entrepreneurs Conference, and Golf & Tennis Challenge. The bottom line is: We believe in you.
So I invite you to take a good look at the story of Flowers and think long and hard before you tell yourself that you cannot change your circumstances and that homeownership is beyond your reach. If you are honest with yourself, you’ll see why we believe in you, and why you should believe in yourself.
