Black Affluence was founded by former Co- workers Xavier Snow and Dominic Weeks in January of 2018. Despite having been brought up in two completely different environments miles apart, they shared similar dissatisfaction towards the 9-5 lifestyle the begrudgingly maintained. This inspired them to then start a group chat to help others learn about investments in the stock market as well as taking the first steps towards financial freedom. Initially, it was only a few close friends but as word got out, it became clear how many people also felt the same way. Thus giving birth to what is now- Black Affluence.
