Synopsis:

African-americans control more than $400 billion in income. But when it comes to managing money, like everyone else, they have been poorly educated in the basics. In Talking Dollars and Making Sense, noted African-American financial planner Brooke Stephens, offers prudent and sensitive advice on money mangement that will help you take control of your finances and plan more effectively for the future. Written within the social, cultural, and historical framework of the African-American experience, this book honestly examines the attitudes, beliefs and behaviors of African-Americans and their finances.

Stephens handily covers the basics of wealth-building, including:

  • Goal-setting
  • Managing credit
  • Home-buying
  • Investing
  • Insurance
  • Tax strategies
  • Educating children about money

Talking Dollars and Making Sense goes beyond simple financial planning, discussing the specific financial dilemmas African-Americans often find themselves in. Filled with anecdotes, quotes, aphorisms, and profiles of contemporary and historical trailblazers who have had an impact on the economic life of their communities, this guide to financial freedom will help your sense of the intracacies of money management and to achieve your financial goals.

From the Back Cover:

There are no secrets to building wealth. It starts with the right plan--and the right attitude.

The African-American community controls more than $400 billion in income. Yet we save and invest less than one percent of our money for the long term! Financial advisor Brooke Stephens, a Wall Street pro who regularly appeared on FX cable TV's Breakfast Time and America Online's Net Noir site, says we just can't afford to "think poor." For oursleves, our children, and our community, we must begin building wealth, one person at a time. Suprisingly, it isn't hard. Not if you're willing to apply a plan. And that, she says, begins with having the right attitude­­and the right information. This is the book that will show you how to strengthen your financial position, step-by-step. It also offers a rare perspective on what African-American history can teach us about our financial freedom.

Using lessons drawn from the lives of black entrepreneurs and investors, the author tells how to:

  • Get comfortable with finances
  • Develop an investment strategy
  • Save more money at higher returns
  • Set goals
  • Manage credit
  • Get the most for your housing dollar
  • Insure yourself wisely
  • Save for college
  • Form an investment club
  • Retire with security

Brooke Stephens tackles controversial issues about how middle-class African Americans are made to feel as if we've abandoned our roots when we pursue wealth. . .why we tend to overspend on luxuries. . .how to overcome the emotional baggage of our economic history. . .and how to hold onto hard-earned prosperity. "Racism is still rampant in the U.S.," acknowledges Ms. Stephens, "but the opportunities for African-Americans to build wealth are better now than they have been in the last four centuries of our presence on these shores." This culturally rich guide tells how to make the most of every opportunity. And, at last, to take control of your financial destiny!
