The #SupportaSista movement is definitely one related to finance. Although financial support is not the only way for black women to show support towards one another it is an area we often make excuses as to why we cannot. That is the mindset I am hoping we can come together and change. Money matters. Black dollars count. As one of the largest consumer bases in the world (black women) a lot of it rests in our hands.
With that being said, we want to make sure we have the money to spend within our communities by making sound financial decisions and investments. Before we spend a dollar, it’s very important that we save a dollar as well.
I spoke with Jonelle McEachern, financial investment advisor who noticed that in the world of investing, Black women are not well represented both in our portfolios and in our professionals. Jonelle has many years experience working for large investment planning companies but has recently decided to branch off on her own and focus on building a network that empowers and educates groups of people that are often overlooked and forgotten when it comes to investing.

So drop her a line and #SupportaSista!
