Understanding who must become, what you need to do to change your beliefs, and your actions, is the game changer. We strongly believe that creating wealth is a journey not an event—we don’t ascribe to get-rich-quick schemes, gimmicks or tricks.
Our vision is to inspire, empower and equip black women to create personal wealth by building investment portfolios that maximise returns and minimise risk. When you are empowered, you can make better choices. As the late Maya Angelou advised, “when you know better, do better”. The role women play in society has evolved, and so has the way we handle money in society. Increasingly, women are earning more money than the men in their lives. Such a scenario causes significant changes to the relationship dynamics within African cultures across the globe.
At Personal Success Planners (PSP), we believe that wealthy black women are blessed in order to be a blessing. It is okay to enjoy your wealth, have the best car, live in a lovely house, and enjoy your exotic holidays. The challenge occurs when these things take over your life and you lose your sense of purpose. At PSP, we believe that wealth is the outcome of values, choices and habits. However, today you probably know quite a few women who own their own businesses, right? In fact, current global statistics are showing that more and more black women are starting their own businesses. Does that mean we have arrived? HECK NO!! We still have a long way to go!
The big question still remains, how many black business women have gone on to build multi-million-dollar businesses? The answer is very few, which is no surprise given the fact that the majority of women across the globe generate less than $100,000 per year in revenue. According to Forbes.com, “Of the 2,153 people who made it to the 2019 FORBES list of World’s Billionaires, 13 of them are black. Of these 13 only 3 of them are black women;
- Oprah Winfrey – American TV Mogul,
- Folorunsho Alakija – Nigerian founder of Famfa Oil,
- Isabel dos Santos – Angolan Investor, the oldest daughter of Angola’s former president.”
