The real and lasting creation of wealth does not come from a dollar bill, but begins internally and with the unseen, author and successful businessman Keith Douglas admonishes.

Douglas, husband of “For Better or Worse” star Tasha Smith, proposes convincingly in the The Power to Get Wealth: No Money Down that the secrets of wealth are unlocked through biblical scripture and the seven keys that he outlines therein. Through the Word of God, Douglas highlights  “spiritual principles and lessons that will instruct, engage and empower readers to mature and incorporate a Kingdom mind-set” and encourages affirmations that help build the inner man to draw opportunities to them and lead them to a divine-procurement of wealth.

“We have so much wealth, so much spending power, but we’re not using it. So we need to come together and work together,” Douglas said on the blue carpet of the Steve Harvey Ford Hoodie Awards in Las Vegas, where his wife was one of the award presenters. He was referencing the nearly $1 trillion of annual economy that African Americans produce yet find true and lasting intergenerational riches frustratingly elusive.

“The response has been overwhelming. The book is doing well. A lot of lives are being changed, and that’s my mission: to change lives and let people know what true wealth is. We as a people have so much inner wealth inside of us. That’s what the book is about, promoting inner wealth.”

The entrepreneur, speaker, film producer, executive producer and consultant, Douglas transitions into the arena of touching lives with the written word. He touches upon verses such as Habakkuk to crystallize his message.

 Habakkuk 2:2-3 “And the Lord answered me and said write the Vision and make it plain upon tables that he may run that readeth it for the vision is yet for an appointed time but at the end it shall speak and not lie; though it may tarry, wait for it because it will surely come; it will no tarry.”

He and his wife are ardent supporters of Hoodie Awards because Harvey is advocating and actively promoting the shared and individual wealth building annually through this community-based awards show and other ventures. “It is like what I’m talking about because Steve Harvey is an entrepreneur. He is building businesses and brands. But not only is he building businesses, he is giving other black entrepreneurs the opportunity to build businesses as well.”
