Why I Started FreeTruth Financial
"Financial Freedom Our Only Hope....Fuck Living Rich and Dying Broke" - Jay-Z
After spending 5 years working in D.C.'s lowest 40 performing schools, I quickly learned that an under-resourced school is a perfect exemplar for seeing all facets of the system of oppression at work; where all marginalizing factors intersect and a sneak peak into the lasting effect on our communities.
I also learned something I've always known--that education really is the key to success. But education in an outdated, oppressive, regime errrr typical public school, is NOT. The FAAAM fills that gap to help educate us about ALL the things they fail to teach us in school.
That's why I founded FreeTruth Financial -- To create an alternative, safe space to learn about the one taboo factor that seems to control our lives. Money. It affects us mentally, physically, and emotionally. It also causes us hella stress, and breaks up relationships. As I tried to find the most critical, high impact issue to address, I found that it all stems from a lack of education and access to money, and ultimately owning our own businesses. THEY don't want us to understand the stock market, insurance, REITS, Capital Gains, how to assess risk and so MUCH MORE.
That's where I come in. As I am gaining certification in Real Estate and Financial Planning, I want to bring all my people to the top with me. If they won't teach us in school, we'll teach each other. There is PLENTY money to go around; but because we don't know how it works, we don't know how to use it or how to make it to benefit US.
So I created this blog to just share my journey to financial freedom with you, share what I learn and challenge us to grow as a community to GET THIS SCHMONEY!
So join the FreeTruth FAAAM, work with me to create your personalized Financial Fitness Plan and smash these #FAAAMGoals!
P.S. I will also be sharing my conspiracy theories, relative pop culture references, money resources and my occasional plans to take over the world and make it a better place.
P.P.S. I cannot for the life of me take a normal picture.
Yours in Financial Freedom,
