Black first-generation wealth builders need to put on their own financial 'oxygen masks' first

Despite gains in income and wealth for black families in America, white families often have a net worth up to 10 times higher.

Discriminatory financial practices such as redlining or credit discrimination have increased the wealth gap and held black families back from being able to create generational wealth.

Times are changing. Black millennials are one of the first generations to push beyond that wealth gap to find financial success. These first-generation wealth builders tend to be hard workers, and they're incredibly appreciative of everything that they have. However, as their success grows, the pressure and obligation they feel grows, as well.


As a certified financial planner, it's my job to help my clients who are first-generation wealth builders.

Many of these wealth builders must learn to embrace their success, build positive financial habits and navigate the many pitfalls and roadblocks that they'll face throughout their financial lives.
