Today it is April 2019, and Black Affluence is preparing for its 9th free community event, Hustlepreneur 101: Connections that Matter; an event aimed at teaching the proper networking and communications skills to be successful.

Black Affluence aims to bring change through not only financial education, but overall mindset shifts. By being intentional on how and what we think about, we increase the likelihood of our success.
