01:19:38

Hey Ladies get your net worth up and dance…come on! That’s right this episode we celebrate Women’s History Month we want to encourage all women to shift their focus from income to the almighty NET WORTH. Self-made millionaire and Financial Coach, Alicia Holmes is our guest is going to breakdance, eh em, breakdown how to play and win the net worth game.

ALICIA HOLMES

Ms. Holmes worked at New York University for over 20 years and eventually held the position of Director of Financial Operations. In the course of her work, she managed more than 30 million grant/institutional dollars.  Her focus for the state and university sponsored programs was the improvement of the life outcomes of young people in under-served communities.  Inspired by her wish to help others, Ms. Holmes conducted numerous seminars on financial literacy and wealth building for university students, parents, and local groups. 

Ms. Holmes was fortunate to have been coached early in life about the path to building wealth. The simple truth she learned at the outset was to move from the consumer mindset of spending to the investor mindset that starts with living below your means and ends with having your savings invested so that your money works for you. 

Ms. Holmes now spends her time teaching women of color about building wealth and financial freedom to improve the quality of life for themselves and their families.  Ms. Holmes strongly believes that the right money mindset with vital practical knowledge, and powerful intention will create financial freedom for woman and all those important to them. 

What drives her to do this work is a commitment that women have power--choice, agency, and comfort--in their financial well-being. Her company, Journey to Wealth, helps women of color achieve financial freedom and live the lives of their dreams.

Awaken The Awesome Podcast Review is just that...AWESOME!

Olivier is one of those special human beings who has found his purpose in life and is NOT afraid to share it with the world-- and for that we are truly thankful.  His energy is infectious and so is his blog, AWAKEN THE AWESOME!  And, we are not just saying that because he wrote a phenomenal review about our podcast, TWO BLACK GUYS WITH GOOD CREDIT.  :)  He gets it.  We want to make financial literacy approachable.  We want to take the stigma out of discussing personal finance so everyone can win.  But you don't have to believe me, just read it for yourself and then tune in!

TWO BLACK GUYS WITH GOOD CREDIT_AWAKEN THE AWESOME BLOG PODCAST REVIEW

"This is, in my opinion, why the TWO BLACK GUYS WITH GOOD CREDIT podcast and the CLEAN financial literacy program serve as such a powerful and exemplary statement in their mission to not only educate but empower our youth through their workshops and the rest of us through their engaging episodes.
I was so moved by what this colorful group of amazing individuals was doing that I made it my daily duty to listen to the entire first season of the podcast on my morning commute.
What a treat!
With a no-nonsense, empathetic, often humorous, edgy and always knowledgeable exchange of facts, anecdotes and solid advice, hosts Shaun & Arlington, along with the rest of the awesome podcast crew, have put together what I believe to be a really fun and approachable program. 
I'm a podcast fiend. And one thing i always look for in my programs is authenticity. Whether you're talking about stamps or dog shows, show me you're authentic and that you believe in your content."

Thank you, Olivier #Stay Awesome
