In today's TFG episode, we deep dive into the state of black luxury spending and what it means to live the #luxe life. Unfortunately, people often spend money they don't have impressing people that they don't know in hopes to get the bag. But is luxury that bad or do we deserve to live the life that we earned. The Financial Griot crew gets deep. And it's this is particularly triggering, listen until the end. We keep it real and actionable.
The Financial Griot is a play on two words (Finance + Griot) that hold significance in closing the racial wealth gap.
Merriam-Webster defines a Griot as a West African historian, storyteller, praise singer, poet, or musician. The griot is a repository of oral tradition and is often seen as a leader due to their position as an advisor to royal personages. As a result of the former of these two functions, they are sometimes called a bard.
As such, we tell the stories that others don't. Stories that we should share for growth, opportunity and understanding. Beyond that we talk about Finances. Specifically, how to become Financially literate, incorporating actionable steps and ultimately building generational wealth.
So there you have it, The Financial Griot or TFG for short. You will be in for a treat. The hosts were able to amass over $2 Million in wealth in about 8 years and are on track to retire early. If you want the secrets; we will gladly share them since opportunity is abundant and Win-Win.
