This is the virtual waiting room for students in the next cohort of The Black Wealth Bootcamp. What does this mean? It means that you've already registered for the course, but the start date is at some point in the future. But no worries! You'll be given access to plenty of enticing content to keep you busy while you wait for the course to begin.
Go ahead and settle in. Watch the videos and begin your wealth building journey. We'll keep adding more and more content as the start date approaches, and add even more once your cohort has begun.
Welcome to The Black Wealth Bootcamp!
I love to learn. I love to teach.. I never presume that I know everything, since the key to knowledge is understanding how little you actually know. But my goal is to give information, insights and perspectives that allow you to broaden your thinking and to realize all that is possible.
My PhD is in Finance, which I obtained from The Ohio State University. My masters degrees are in Mathematics and Statistics, which I earned at The University of Kentucky. I also received BA and BS degrees with a triple major in Finance, Economics and Business Management from The University of Kentucky.
I have been on the faculty at Syracuse University since 2001. Before that, I taught classes at The University of Rochester, The Ohio State University, Indiana University and The University of Kentucky. I've been teaching at the college level since I was 22 years old, and have mostly taught classes in Mathematics, Economics, Statistics and Finance.
I am the author of the following books: "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about College," "What if George Bush were a Black Man?", "Financial Lovemaking 101: Merging Assets with Your Partner in Ways that Feel Good," and "Black American Money."
Finally, I am the founder of the Your Black World Coalition, an organization and independent media outlet with over half a million subscribers worldwide. We have played a role in confronting destructive hip-hop music, and have also led campaigns on various civil rights issues in the African American community.
The course is designed to give you access to any and everything you'd like to learn about wealth building, business creation and black economic empowerment. Through dozens of mini-lectures, class meetings, and online group discussions, you will benefit by learning the following:
