Your Circle is Your Network and Net Worth, Is It 'Heal-Thy'?

It's time to end the stigma of mental health in the Black communities and start addressing our traumas so we can work collectively, productively and fruitfully, to contribute to wealth building in our communities. Abu Simbel, LLC event company is a Dallas based business that held a series of events (Post COVID-19) that provided the community with networking opportunities which centered around wealth and health. The events, which showcased panels of community leaders discussing prevalent issues in the community such as healthy eating, mental health, healing traumas and wealth, grew rapidly from 40 to over 400 participants. It blossomed as one of Dallas's most premier health conscious events which landed rapper, actor and activist, David Banner as its keynote speaker.

Amazingly, the events were simply a prelude to a bigger vision which is the wellness resort in Belize ( The events served a real, live interactive survey which would give the participants a taste of what they would actually experience at the resort. Owner, and HBCU alumni Shajuanda White, has partnered with Zector, founders Calaunte Winston and Nathan Nti, in building an empire merging Technology and Mental Wellness. With over twenty years of experience in IT industries for Fortune top 10 companies, private businesses and government contracts.

Thrive Network co-founders, Shajuanda White, Calaunte Winston and Nathan Nti to bring a new innovating social media platform blockchain that allows our voices and stories to be heard authentically and unapologetically without censorship or ambiguous algorithms.

Shajuanda has built a successful career that's been forged through resiliency and strength. Her journey brings to mind one of her favorite quotes by Iyanla Vanzant, "the trees with the strongest branches and deepest roots are those that have withstood the heavy winds and stormy weather, season after season. Her current ventures as the founder of Abu Simbel events, wellness resort and technology company is simply another endeavor for the innovative entrepreneur! The former owner of "Kemet Kitchen," which was a health conscious restaurant in the heart of Dallas' Deep Ellum area, spent many years in IT usually as the only African-American woman in a senior program management position. Although she thrived in this industry and was able to command a high, 6 figure income, she knew she had a greater calling to cater to her culture by offering platforms for collective creativity, expression, healing, along with innovating technology and community building and outreach.

Shajuanda' s advice to young entrepreneurs would be to have a strong foundation in believing in yourself and never allowing critics to say your dream is too big to achieve. She firmly believes that consistency, working hard, but working smart with impeccable execution is invaluable. She also emphasizes partnering and working with friends, or business persons you trust that can help you in achieving your goals, and not going at it alone. She encourages study and research into your chosen field and surrounding yourself with intelligent people who may have skill sets you don't have, but who have the same determination and drive that you do. Shajuanda also believes in reaching back, and the value of meaningful mentorship, as Shajuanda has mentored young developers into becoming entrepreneurs.
