I can't tell you what an honor it was to be asked to be the official Business Coach for the Wakanda nation. I'm talking about the WHOLE nation here guys. I mean, when the Black Panther T'Challa and M'Baku the head of the Jabari Tribe asks you to take them on as clients, you just don't say no. Now that Erik Killmonger aka N'Jadaka was finally out of the picture and no longer a threat to the nation, I felt that this was my chance and opportunity came a' knockin'!
When I was presented with this dream job, I didn't even know where to start. I had only been on a virtual 3D tour of Wakanda (twice) and really needed to know more about the economic development ins and outs of the nation. Not to mention how best to utilize, protect but also safely profit from Vibranium without messing up all of their natural resources. My biggest dilemma was how could I effectively do my job, all the while trying to keep Wakanda's Vibranium out of the hands of the 45th President of the United States? I just knew if he found out about it, not only would he try to get his hands on all of it, but he would have taken credit for having created the meteor source of Vibranium itself. There was no way I could let this happen. Taking this on was a huge risk for me, but a challenge I was certainly up for. I could never let the Wakandans down.
I felt that Shuri was the real economic genius here. A strong Wakandan woman, crazy smart and a high tech inventor who could blow Silicon Valley nerds out of the Pacific Ocean. After working with Shuri and getting a clearer picture of the nation's economic goals, I proposed and started implementing the following.
- I would shadow with Nakia to get a better idea of her spy game. This would give me insight into how they've been dealing with other nations and using that intel to further protect their economy.
- I would work with T'Challa (Black Panther) to create floor plans for co-working spaces throughout the nation. I felt this would bring a sense of working community while also feeding the entrepreneurial and innovative spirit of the nation.
- I asked M'Baku if he would be my official tour guide and assistant whenever I needed something. He obliged and gave me a piece of Vibranium as a gift to keep for myself. My kinetic energy has been through the roof ever since and I've never felt better.
- I suggested they find a way to make Everett Ross a US Ambassador of Wakanda. This would certainly help business relations with the Western World.
It's still early in the game, but I couldn't be happier about this opportunity and the progress that we've already started making with our strategic planning. Taking on the title of Business Coach to the Wakanda Nation is humbling and I am so grateful for this opportunity. I'll try to keep you all posted along the way!
