Description
The African-American community controls more than $400 billion in income. Yet we save and invest less than one percent of our money for the long term! Financial advisor Brooke Stephens, a Wall Street pro who regularly appeared on FX cable TV's Breakfast Time and America Online's Net Noir site, says we just can't afford to "think poor". For ourselves, our children, and our community, we must begin building wealth, one person at a time. Surprisingly, it isn't hard. Not if you're willing to apply a plan. And that, she says, begins with having the right attitude - and the right information. This is the book that will show you how to strengthen your financial position, step-by-step. It also offers a rare perspective on what African-American history can teach us about our financial freedom. Using lessons drawn from the lives of black entrepreneurs and investors, the author tells how to get comfortable with finances, develop an investment strategy, save more money at higher returns, set goals, manage credit, get the most for your housing dollar, insure yourself wisely, save for college, form an investment club, and retire with security. Brooke Stephens tackles controversial issues about how middle-class African-Americans are made to feel as if we've abandoned our roots when we pursue wealth ... why we tend to overspend on luxuries ... how to overcome the emotional baggage of our economic history ... and how to hold onto hard-earned prosperity.
