about The podcast

You are frustrated with the discrepancies of the financial status among Americans and know that somehow it can all change. This podcast was born with that same belief.

 Currently, for every $100 a white family has a black family has $5. The numbers for other minority groups are just as staggering. Let’s do something about that together. 

Being a minority myself and with a personal background that checks all the boxes for living a substandard financial life, I turned things around. I know our audience can too (if you haven’t already!)

Changing the complexion of wealth is about educating the public around finances, personal health, wealth, and fitness.
