Woke Doesn’t Mean Broke: My Review Review On This Financial Literacy Workshop
Billy Carson is a black billionaire, best selling author and founder of 4biddenknowledge TV. He often host workshops (either virtual or online), and travels the country speaking and attending red carpet events. I absolutely love Billy for the invaluable knowledge he shares. He’s one of the most down-to-earth (Virgo), massively wealthy people I “know”, (the man’s a BILLIONAIRE!) and it feels really cool to have such close access to him through his membership site, 4biddenknowledge TV.
Recently, I attended his virtual workshop, Woke Doesn’t Mean Broke, and to be honest, I was a bit underwhelmed. Which is not usual because I’ve listened to Billy speak before, and typically he has a plethora of mind-blowing information to share with his eager audience. Perhaps I’m a little jaded because he spent an extensive amount of time going on about mindset and changing negative subconscious beliefs about money- things I’ve heard before.
Regardless, the 2-hour, live event was still useful. Billy spoke from experience and shared some anecdotal stories with us about his upbringing in extreme poverty to his current life circumstances. He shared about his journey to extreme wealth, how he thinks about money management, some ways to accumulate more wealth, and how to be smarter when dealing with your finances. He also touches on the power of positive affirmations and self talk, something I’ve been a huge fan of for years now.
Part of the workshop consisted of creating two columns on a piece of paper: one side for Positive Money Beliefs and the other for Negative Money Beliefs. He then proceeds to tell us how to go about changing those negative beliefs. Alot of it had to do with addressing the mistruths surrounding the beliefs.
Here are some other key takeaways:
- Budgeting is super important!
- Have liquid assets
- Have a base cap = an amount saved up that you DON’T ever dip below
- You can become wealthy by knowing what your passions are and adding value to the world based off of your passions
