Everyone is feeling the effects of a major inflation surge as of late, largely due in part to product shortages and global supply chain issues as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. But what exactly does this mean and what can you do to better protect your wealth? Don’t panic — the more you understand, the easier it will be to safeguard your assets during uncertain times.
Charisse Conanan Johnson, CFA (chartered financial analyst), is the original Wealthy Girl who will define what it means to be wealthy for years to come. She was inspired to write her book, A Wealthy Girl – 7 Steps to Prosperity, Peace, and Personal Power, as an homage to her maternal and paternal grandmothers. She feels wholistic wealth needs to account for both tangible and intangible assets. The sphere of wealth includes monetary assets, personal and professional relationships, social capital, skillset and your faith.
Our guests, Shaunté and SeKai Parker, join the Heels of Success podcast to discuss their experience with obtaining over $900,000 in college scholarships. Shaunte is a licensed real estate agent in the Washington Metropolitan Area. Her daughter, SeKai, has aspirations of becoming a doctor. During our conversation, Shaunté shares that parents need to start the process of looking for college scholarship opportunities when your student enters 9th grade. She jokingly stated that for her this process was like having a full-time job – from submitting applications to managing deadlines. A key is not only having a child who is a good student; but also, one who is highly engaged in student activities and community volunteerism. Listen in as Shaunté and Sekai expound upon their experience with high school and managing the college scholarship process.
