In The Black Business School, one of our most cherished beliefs involves what we refer to as "The three pillars of wealth." The three pillars are stock/bond investing, real estate investing and entrepreneurship. So, understanding real estate is one of the most important things for a black person to do in America if they want to find their way to building wealth.
The Black Real Estate Program is designed to help you do just that. By investing time to learn how real estate works and how wealth is built in this very important arena, you can put your family ahead of the economic curve for many generations to come. Our experts are some of the leading real estate teachers in America, and they can help you to achieve relevant economic goals for your family.
This program will teach you everything you want to know, including:
1) How to buy your first home
2) Fixing your credit to prepare to buy a home
3) How money is made through house-flipping
4) How to make money on foreclosures
5) The secrets to understanding tax liens
6) How interest rates and economic factors impact the real estate and housing markets
Much, much more!
Once you've completed the program, you will be eligible to receive a certificate of completion from The Black Business School. You will then be able to move forward into the life that you deserve.
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.
