Help Team AskCheyB Raise Funds for Our 1st U.S. Book Tour.

 

BRINGING LOVE BACK

What inspires me to be a Life & Relationship Coach is, knowing that the work I’m doing is helping other people grow in their relationships. What started out as simple Q&A segment on Facebook in 2011 with very few supporters, has spiraled into a brand that now inspires over 60,000 people via online social networks to love again. Based on the awesome feedback I’ve received from the people who have subscribed to “AskCheyB” in the past two years, it’s become evident that the people out there want more outlets that allow them to gain helpful relationship insight that adds value to their lives. After listening to the questions and concerns raised by my audience, I’ve written a book that addresses these very issues, and inspire hope for a much happier, healthier, longer-lasting relationship. My book is self-published and unfortunately doesn’t have the support/funding of a major publishing house, but with your donations, my team and I can organize a book tour in a city near you this spring/summer 2013. The purpose of this tour is to connect with you all face to face, and inspire growth in your relationships with my new book. This will be a fun-filled event with great food, drinks, music, live relationship discussions, and more!

WHAT WE NEED & WHAT YOU GET

I’m fully devoted to adding value to the lives of others on a daily basis. “AskCheyB” mission is to help people build happier, healthier, longer-lasting relationships.

Our goal is to reach $20,000 to cover our team’s traveling/hotel expenses, books, promotional materials, food & entertainment for the tour.

We believe that with your help, we can help change the lives of people all over the U.S. and get them excited about loving again. In return for your donations, you will receive some of the amazing perks listed on our fundraiser site listed below (i.e. A copy of my new book, AskCheyB pins, t-shirts, hoodies, 1-on-1 coaching sessions, and more, but more importantly, you will be a part of the movement that helps bring love back into our hearts, back into our homes, and back into our communities.

  1. I just brought your book, so pleased I did…..however I always read your twitter messagse and I take them to heart. I’m so please that you have given me and other women the tools we need when it comes to dating a man and to top it off our phone conversation just proved that as well. Women have always wanted to know what men think in their world and your the go-to guy……..your like my lil black book. I know my worth, I will not settle. Today I have this really large coke bottle smile because I’m pleased I made the right choice in my date last night. So ladies, please go get the book, if your not able to, please read his twitter messages and whats on his website; is has sooooo much information that you, your best friend, sister, cousin must know. Thanks Chey.

  2. I just came across your website and I have to admit that you have truly opened my mind to a much more clear perspective about relationships. I’ve dated my boyfriend for going on 8 months, we are still growing, and I could never understand how he thinks at times. All of your advise has made it clear to me now.

    I’m a broke college student, and live in Provo, UT. I’ve never really felt the need to donate very often in my life. But I feel the need to donate to your cause and hope someday when you sell your book, maybe I can get a personal autograph at least? I’d love to see you on tour, but I see you are quite far from Utah.

    Also, one last question. When are you planning to stop receiving donations? I would like to donate at some point to you. I’m sure anything counts.

  3. Sexism and misogynistic attitudes have presented in all forms of media. There are countless books containing self-help advice on various topics. The most popular topic is relationships. This has spawned the “How to Get a Man” phenomenon. These books seem harmless, but their messages are often demeaning towards women and preach submission over equality of women. These books are often written by self-proclaimed relationship coaches, with little or no formal training. Some of these books are written by celebrities. Many of the best sellers are written by men. They are selling books based on “life experiences”. A perfect example of this is, Tyrese Gibson best known for his roles in Baby Boy and Transformers, a best-selling R&B artist, his outrageous Twitter conflicts and most recently his rants against obese people, is the author of two self- help books. Tyrese’s educational background is sketchy and there’s no proof of a successful personal relationship, Tyrese has managed to make it to the New York Times Best seller list. To give Tyrese credit the book that was marketed to his female audience, was co-authored by Rev Run of Run DMC now an ordained minister. Part of Reverend Run’s duties is to offer advice. Tyrese’s books are almost harmless compared to some others.

    Steve Harvey’s educational background is a bit more extensive than Tyrese’s, however whereas Tyrese’s books explore the man’s mind and then gives advice, Harvey’s books lean more towards telling a woman how to be a woman. His book received mixed reviews. Those who did not support his book went on to criticize his advice when he adapted that same book into a cinematic comedy starring Kevin Hart. It left many of us questioning the validity of the book. This relationship advice came from a twice divorced comedian.
    Recently there has been severe criticism of life coach Chey B. on the social network, Twitter. I was first made aware of his presence by a tweet that could be construed as homophobic. Twitter is a place where random thoughts are condensed to 140 characters at a time. Sensitivity and political correctness is often disregarded. What makes the difference in Chey B’s tweets is that he claims to be a life coach there to uplift and empower women. The following are tweets from Chey B. that have garnered some criticism:

    “Ladies: Believe me… you don’t want “equality”. Walk in a man’s shoes for 24 hrs and you’ll be begging to get the perks of a woman again!”

    “Make up your mind ladies! Either you want to be on the same level as a man, or you want him to be gentle and cater to you.”

    “Ladies: Your degrees are “your” degrees. They’re about as useful to a man as toilet paper. A man wants to know “What can you do for me?”

    “Ladies: Your vagina is your negotiating power!”

    Chey B.,makes the assertion that he speaks for all men and that women would be better off being submissive. His messages often go along with the concept; “Feminism does not uplift Black people. It actually divides black men and women” (@theblackguyx via Twitter) Chey has admitted that he targets women. Has taken pride in the hashtag #singlebydesign but yet his whole book is devoted to telling a woman how to get and keep a man. When he is questioned or criticized about his views he often responds with pre prepared, generic answers. He has yet to answer direct questions regarding how his message affects equality.

    Other disturbing behavior by Chey B., is his unwillingness to speak directly to African- American men on Twitter that have questioned his viewpoints. If these men are not in total agreement with his views he directs them to his website where they can request one on one advice with him. Instead of backing his views, when challenged Chey B. will make a statement and quickly delete or make the tweet otherwise unavailable. Those who have had direct contact with Chey, have had to resort to capturing these tweets via screen shot or other methods of saving the tweets. This tends to happen when he is questioned by bloggers interested in obtaining research material. Chey often tells individuals that disagree with him, that their issue is self-hate. It is disheartening that Chey B. has over 30,000 followers and his messages continue to mock the independence and equality of women.

    If there continues to be a following for Chey B.’s advice and other self-proclaimed life coaches with the same damaging messages of submission, further generations are doomed. Chey B. and his counterparts are the gateway to worsening sexist attitudes towards women. Once a woman is told to revert back to old gender roles, society will then begin to feel as if women are not entitled to deserved equality. Injustices, assaults and misogyny become more acceptable. and his counterparts are the gateway to worsening sexist attitudes towards women.

  5. I must admit when I first noticed you on Towanna Freeman’s (Black Life Coaches) love and relationship show on YouTube I judged a book by its cover. I was very standoffish and honestly didn’t even want to hit the play button. Something told me to do it anyway and you’re not as scary as you seem and I am sure the book is an interesting read. I just want to say, keep doing what you’re doing. It seems like you are happy on your spiritual journey and I am sure you have a lot to offer to this world as you learn and grow. I know how much it takes to do what your’re doing as far as putting yourself out there and trusting in the unseen so I wish you the best! Also, I have some relationship questions is there a specific place to post them on this site or do we have to hire you as a coach? Let me know. Thanks.
