Project Description

Millennial Wealth Builders is an audio docuseries for women of color that sparks dialogues to normalize money conversations. We also highlight practical wealth-building strategies and empower our listeners to take action and build wealth. Now we want to transform our audio content into a page-turning book. 

Here's the problem: Women of Color are at a disadvantage when it comes to building wealth. We are paid less than 82 cents for every dollar men make. So, how can we build wealth when we make less?

Here's reality: We don't.  We can't save or invest what we don't earn.  We also lack the knowledge, network, and resources to succeed.

Here's the solution: The stories from women entrepreneurs previously featured on our podcast empower listeners to take action with their money and careers.  Guests' stories provide concrete steps on negotiating your salary, taking on leadership roles, prioritizing yourself, ascending in your career, and more.

The sooner YOU learn about wealth-building strategies and opportunities; the better equipped YOU will be to make financial decisions.

We are raising $5,000 to cover the cost of transforming our grant-funded docuseries into a book and audiobook.

We have some fun rewards for you to take part in on our campaign page! 

Thank you so much for your support in helping Millennial Wealth Builders grow into a successful book that empowers women of color to take control of their wealth-building journey.
