Wealthy vs Rich

Hey Pooka Family!!
This saturday I had the opportunity to speak on a panel for the Omega Psi Phi Black Wealth Initiative! It was a great event! The keynote speaker was John Simons the senior personal finance editor at Black Enterprise magazine. He really made us stop and think about whether we’d like to be rich or wealthy? Rich, you have a lot of money but wealthy is money, power and equity! We as a people have to focus on becoming financially saavy and wealthy check out the Black Enterprise tools to do just that!

The Omega Black Wealth Initiative had 2 main parts, managing your finances and becoming entrepreneurs. This is where I came in, I really enjoyed speaking on the panel and answering any questions that I could. All in all it was a great day and I learned a lot! Pooka family this year lets focus on building wealth and not just getting rich or just getting by! Check out Black Enterprises 10 POWER MOVES TO HELP YOU BETTER MANAGE YOUR MONEY

I’m ready! are you?


  1. We definitely need to manage our money better. What good is driving the latest car when you don't have money saved away for retirement. I know you did a great job on the panel. I am indeed ready! See you at the top!

  2. Great post! What lucky people to get to hear from you. I so agree that, as nice as money is, the real positive power is in brand equity, and ownership of something that extends way past where mere dollars can go.
