About Us

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.

What to do

We provide the community with access to professionals in various fields in the form of panel discussions, game shows, and honest conversations. The idea is to help others learn about investments in the stock market and take the first steps towards financial freedom.

Black Affluence is not about a side hustle to make some extra income. It is about gaining knowledge and skills to succeed and dominate by working together and creating our own systems!

Welcome!

I’m Xavier Snow and I’ll tell you what Black Affluence is about and how it came to be.

The gap between college and real life

After graduating from college I started working a lot, in all kinds of places and I realized I wasn’t getting anywhere.

Unfortunately, our education system has been failing systematically to prepare students to be financially free, or even financially literate. This issue is more evident in black and brown communities, where the average household income is forecasted to reach a staggering 0$ by 2050. I was barely earning to make ends meet, and if I kept on that track I was never going to be able to stop worrying about money.

It is common to see ourselves hopelessly subject to accept whatever is at our hands, just to get by and feed our family. I learned that if I wanted to be successful I had to take control of my life and my financial future by investing in myself. Shortly after, I began to immerse myself in the world of online education and digital marketing.

A new beginning: Black Affluence is born

In 2017, I moved to DC with my dad and started a new life.

I created Black Affluence with a friend and co-worker. We felt the same dissatisfaction towards the nine-to-five lifestyle we were having while working together. Although we had no business plan, the idea was simple: to create a platform for young black people to learn financial literacy.

We started a group chat with our friends discussing stocks, real estate, personal finance, and more. We would go on to host a series of free monthly events known as Hustlepreneur 101 in the Metropolitan- DC area.

In the beginning, it was only a few close friends, but as word got out, it became clear that we were not the only ones who felt that something was missing in our education programs. In 3 months our community grew to over 1,000 people, and in January 2018 we founded Black Affluence.

How far will we go?

My ultimate goal in life is to help 10,000 people in my community reach financial independence so that they begin to build generational wealth for themselves and their families.

Do you think this sounds too ambitious?

I don’t.Through our educational courses, community outreach, and strategic partnerships, I truly believe this goal is achievable. I believe in our system, our strength, and our commitment to make it a reality, and we won’t stop until we get it, because we know it is possible.
