In this episode, I spoke with the wonderful Michelle Jackson about her experience with race and money. The purpose of this episode is to explore the intersectionality of race in our money stories. The better understanding we have, the better allies we become, and I think we can become more effective in moving the needle towards equity and inclusion.
Since March of this year so much has happened: COVID-19, a downturn in the economy, and another heinous burst of racial injustice. On social media many have joked about wanting a redo of 2020.
In June of 2020 I did a special episode addressing the difficult conversation of racial injustice, and as a part of my commitment to keep the conversation going, I have invited the fabulous Michelle Jackson to talk with me about her experience with race and money.
Michelle Jackson is a force to be reckoned with. She has a powerful and insightful perspective which comes from her own personal experience.
Michelle is passionate about helping her readers and listeners empower themselves financially. Whether it is by improving their personal finances or learning how to sell what they already know, she loves having those conversations.
Michelle runs the website and podcast “Michelle is Money Hungry,” and she is the founder of the Money on the Mountain retreat focused on empowering financially single women one conversation at a time. When she’s not geeking out about personal finance, she loves hiking in the mountains of Colorado.
What you’ll learn about in today’s episode:
Michelle Jackson’s financial experience as a POC living in a predominantly white and affluent area in Colorado
