Description

With everything going on right now, I wanted to replay one of the most important and impactful conversations that I've had on the podcast, The Black Tax & The Cost of Being Black in America with guest Shawn Rochester. In the beginning of the episode, I also share my thoughts on why I will continue to use my platform to educate and amplify Black voices while giving you the tools to reach your Financial Freedom & Independence goals.  I encourage everyone to listen to this episode and share it with someone who needs to hear more of how we as a nation got to a place where Black Americans own only 2% of wealth and what we can do to change it .

In this episode you will learn:

    • Why I'm so committed to amplifying Black voices and stories
    • What is the Black Tax and how it’s impacting your wealth
    • How to identify unconscious vs. conscious bias
    • Why hard work is not the key to success and what resources you really need
    • Concrete ways you can close the wealth gap
    • How to apply Shawn’s PHD strategy to create jobs, capital, and thriving black communities, and so much more
