The Wealth Choice

Printable PDF

It’s no secret that hard times have been even harder for the black community. Approximately 35 percent of African Americans had no measurable assets in 2009, and 24 percent of those with assets had only one motor vehicle. Based on his seven-year study of 1,000 of the wealthiest African Americans, Dennis Kimbro offers advice and insights about climbing the economic ladder, even when the odds seem stacked against you. Learn how to:

  • Develop a wealth-generating mindset and habits
  • Commit to lifelong learning
  • Craft goals that match your passion
  • Make short-term sacrifices for long-term gain
  • Take calculated risks when opportunity presents itself

Sponsored by the Business Department with generous support from the Oakton Educational Foundation.
