Black Lives Matter and Guest Requests

I’m pushing pause on the podcast this week. So you have more time and space to be able to listen to other voices, with a few recommendations below.

We need change. We need to put in the work and effort it takes to change. I’ve been reading and listening and trying to understand what I don’t understand completely yet.

Being horrified or upset is not enough and being afraid to have really hard conversations and staying silent (which I’ve done before) – is part of the problem.

Resources

So first here are a few resources to take a look at – books, podcasts and more that I was recommended.

I’ve been reading and learning and listening as much as I possibly can and there are three podcasts that I wanted to share with you:

Intersectionality Matters African American Policy Forum
MOMENTUM: A Race Forward Podcast
NYT: 1619 
bit.ly/ANTIRACISMRESOURCES

(thank you Sarah Sophie Flicker and Alyssa Klein for this resource list!)

Currently, I’m reading the book “So You want to talk about Race.” Here is a quote that struck me:

“If you live in this system of white supremacy, you are either fighting the system or you are complicit. There is no neutrality to be had towards systems of injustice, it is not something you can just opt-out of.”

― Ijeoma Oluo, So You Want To Talk About Race

Feel free to comment any great resources so I can check them out!

Guest Requests

The second part, I’m hoping you can help with.

I always have a waitlist for millionaire interviews but I seek out and prioritize diversity. (pretty much everyone but white men!) But I could do much better.

Starting with the fact that I’ve never asked YOU for guest introductions or referrals!

If you have anyone (BIPOC or LGBTQ+ or white woman!) that you follow online or that you know personally that you think has a net worth of a million dollars or more and made through business let me know in the form below. I know that conversation can be awkward so you can just fill out their info and we can do the outreach!

Or if you can make a personal introduction to that would be amazing!

We’ve set up a simple guest suggestion form: go to www.eventualmillionaire.com/guest

I would love you to recommend who you want to hear from, they don’t even have to have a website as long as they have a business!

We can change our children’s future by putting in the work today.
