Tiffany James is never going back to the financial life she led before. As a Haitian-Jamaican American from Brooklyn, New York, Tiffany had student debt after college, like most students. At 25, while working as an event manager at an NYC hotel, a co-worker persuaded her to invest in Tesla, and the rest is history. Two years later, she’s turned her initial investment of $10,000 into $2 million. In November 2020, she founded Modern BLK Girl, the largest digital platform designed for women of color to build wealth through investing in the stock market. As a self-taught stock enthusiast, Tiffany has helped over 225,000 (mostly) women break into the boys club and banish the taboos of investment. This first-of-its-kind platform has helped thousands of women of color earn over $3.5 million in the stock market, with a continued mission to get 500,000 black women in the market while growing into one of the largest online platforms for women of color to build wealth. Tiffany has been featured in Bloomberg, Fox News, Business insider, and Afrotech and has touted collaborations with Forbes, Motley Fool, and more. In this episode, Tiffany shares her motivation to learn the language of investing and so much more. If you don’t have the money to invest, think again. This is an eye-opening episode on the possibilities of changing your financial trajectory.
