Will You Let the #BlackPanther Come Alive in You?

Happy Monday, and for some of you, I hope you are enjoying some relaxation on this President’s Day holiday. Or, shall I say it’s Black Panther day, considering the 8 records the movie has officially smashed at the box office as it earned $202 million from Friday to Sunday alone.  

My husband and I saw the movie yesterday. Oh, my! As a Black female, I am beaming with pride. As an American, I am head over heels excited for this breakthrough in our nation. As a global citizen, I am inspired by the cross-border cultural osmosis.

As a wealth expert, Black Panther epitomizes what I try to share with you on a weekly basis – pursue excellence in everything you do (money included), think about how your ability to generate wealth affects other people, and recognize that your past actions (or those of your family) do not have to dictate your future.

If you haven’t seen the movie yet, I won’t give anything away. Just know that when it comes to managing your money, and growing wealth, these things certainly hold true too. My favorite line from the movie was expressed at the very end of the movie:

“We must find a way to look after each other as if we were one single tribe.”

You are definitely in my tribe and I’m trying to do my best to look out for your financial well-being. Will the essence of #BlackPanter come alive in you too?

With that, here are my top hits from the week:

  • The stock market has been all over the place – up, down, and everything around. Take a peek at the below video, where I give my views on TD Ameritrade’s Trading Live Show on the recent stock market’s movement, as well as how Goldman Sachs is making waves with its fairly new bank called Marcus.
