“You can’t just work your way too wealth. You just can’t do it. You have to develop relationships. You have to think about your investment strategies. You have to think about how people invest in you, how people sponsor you.” – Chana Ginelle Ewing
Words matter, and having the proper language to discuss money and our emotions related to money sometimes have the battle.
My guest today believes we must start by teaching important words at a young age. Chana Ginelle Ewing is an accomplished entrepreneur. She’s the founder and CEO of Geenie. It’s a self-development platform for black women. She’s also a recently published author having just released her first book, An ABC of Equality. The book aims to teach children and everyone of all ages about the world we live in and how to navigate our way through it by breaking down keywords, from ability, to gender, to multiculturalism.
While the book doesn’t speak specifically about money, Chana and I had a very deep conversation around our early understandings of what money is, its constructs, its influences. For me, the all too economically charged school cafeteria growing up in Massachusetts and so much more.
