From Burning to BluePrint

The Greenwood District in Tulsa, OK –  better known as Black Wall Street – the segregated community that was originally built out of necessity but thrived, has a legacy in American history that has not been fully explored.

From its creation to its ultimate destruction due to the Tulsa Race Riots where the community was bombed by the American government, the true toll of its devastation is still being explored today.

What Black Wall Street has become is a rallying cry and launchpad for black Americans to build their wealth and thrive once again.

From Burning to Blueprint: Rebuilding Black Wall Street After a Century of Silence

From Burning to Blueprint is the upcoming book by Kevin L. Matthews II. It tells the story of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre in the era of the Black Lives Matter movement and social activism. As the title suggests, it is more than a historical account of what happened a century ago, this book provides a path for Black families to rebuild Black Wall Street in the 21st century.

This book builds on decades of research into Tulsa’s Race Massacre and weaves the past and the present together to reveal how the formula used to spark one of the worst race massacres in American history, is still being used today.

Before applying to be financed be sure to have a plan in place on how you’ll be able to repay the loan and a back up plan in case of sudden financial hardship. I know the pandemic caught a lot of my friends off guard but going forward have that emergency fund built and a debt repayment plan in place!!

If you’re in need of a debt repayment plan click the link in bio and schedule your discovery session. Remember debt was never meant to be our life time partner.

Reposted from @moneyspeakeasy For some people, missed opportunities are excuses for their misfortune. For others, unfortunate times are the catalyst they need to turn things around.

Want things to change? Start by taking a good hard look at your habits and actions.

When it comes to personal finance, you need to consistently work towards conquering your goals. Waiting for your finances to improve on their own does not work. Debt does not magically disappear. It requires focus, hard work and dedication. But fortunately, the rewards are life changing.

I challenge you to do one thing TODAY to improve your financial situation. Make an extra payment on your debt, call your bank to open a retirement account, revisit and update your budget, or arrange automatic payments into a savings account.

Whichever you decide, make today the day you STOP WAITING and START PURSUING your financial dreams.

What action step will you take TODAY to reach your financial goals? If you don't have anything planned, I can help. Joing our FB group, "Become Your Own CFO". We sharing learning and sharing financial tips to jumpstart us towards our goals.

Reposted from @krystal_financial_friend Read that 10 times over. Really, 10 times. (It’s a nice mantra, and if you find one you like, make sure to hold on to it.)

It's easy to get caught up in the perfectionism trap. But focusing so hard on being perfect prevents us from taking action or making any progress at all.

So forget perfection—it’s not the pathway to success.

You’re going to forget your budget. You’re going to fall short of your goals. You’re going to gain a pound (or two). You’re going to lose it again.

You’re incredible, but you’re also human. So take it easy on yourself, okay?

As a black female business owner it is not lost on me how even though I've had to work more than twice as hard for what I have, just how lucky I am.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As we celebrate this Freedom Day with friends and family let's remember our ancestors that came before us and never forget.

Corporate America can be a truly hostile place for Black women. I tried to be the change I wished to see for so long. It’s too much work for one person or even one million. All this is to say…I see you, sis, and I am sending you all the ❤️❤️❤️

Reposted from @the_wealth_warrior 100 years ago, the massacre of Black Wall Street in Tulsa, Oklahoma took place. 5 hotels, 31 restaurants, 8 doctors’ offices, 2 movie theaters, 4 drug stores ,24 grocery stores and 1000+ homes were reduced to ash.

Countless dollars of Black wealth were burned to ash.

I'm grateful for the increased awareness and for the attention that this has gotten today.

Yet, I"m saddened by past, present and potentially future efforts by some to ensure that we are not aware of this as well as other parts of our history.

This includes the countless acts of de jure segregation that have contributed to the racial wealth gap.

Reposted from @legendary_wealthbuilders Passive income is the real flex 💪🏽. Either you're working hard for your money or your money is working hard for you. Although it can be both.

Most times we gotta do what we gotta do and go out there and work 40, 50, 60+ hours a week to get this bag 💰. But we also have to find ways for our money to grow without trading our time.

There are many ways to do this. My preferred method is through investing. A few hours of analyzing and research can get me a month worth of living expenses.

Tell me what you can do with an extra few thousand dollars a month?

I get asked this all the time -- what do I have to do to reach a $100K or $1M portfolio? 💰
My answer is always to be intentional with your money and to make investing a priority. Make sure your hard earned money isn't slipping through the cracks. 🤔
👉Remember, it's NOT about how much you're earning, but what you're actually doing with your money that can make the biggest difference -- it's your choice!
As always, let's build wealth together!⠀⠀⠀

Reposted from @moneyinmatrimony We've all made mistakes as it relates to our finances, some of which we are still paying for today.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If this resonates with you, then it's important that you make a plan to conquer whatever it is that's holding you back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You have to get from underneath the burden that's holding you hostage.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don't let a financial mistake you made several years ago keep you from having a solid financial future!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Sell that house that you knew you couldn't afford when you bought it!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Pay off those student loans you borrowed 15 years ago!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Cut up the credit cards that you used to buy things trying to impress people who never even noticed you!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All of these things are burdens to your financial future.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Don't be ashamed to recognize and take ownership of your past financial mistakes! Your future self will thank you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hope this empowers you to take some kind of action today!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What past financial decisions are delaying your current financial goals?
