Live Your Most Beautiful Life
“My people suffer from a lack of knowledge.” – Hosea 4:6
The wealth gap between between whites and blacks in America is at an all time high of almost 95%. A major reason why this wealth gap exists is due to a lack of knowledge re: finance and building personal wealth. As black women, we need to gather as much knowledge as possible about the accumulation and growth of wealth. Here are a few resources that you should take advantage of in order to build up your finance know-how:
"Wealthy Sistas" is a "Blog Talk Radio broadcast" which the host Deborah Hardnett features six and seven figure earning women of color for the enrichment of its listeners. If you can’t catch it online when the show is on the air you can download the podcast on itunes.
Black Enterprise is an extremely popular magazine dedicated to discussing financial health, and provides excellent information re: wealth management. Check out Black Enterprise's money management website link here.
Suze Orman is another great resource. This financial wiz continues to feed millions with solid financial advice, and is incredibly entertaining as well!
Lastly, I highly encourage you to become familiar with FICO and how FICO scores work. You can download the official FICO information booklet here.
Don’t let a lack of financial knowledge stunt your financial growth. Be determined to avoid the bottom portion of the wealth gap through financial literacy.
