What happens when you combine a financial planner and MC/Hip Hop educator?
Invite us to speak at your organization and find out.
Let's face it, thinking about money is stressful, talking about it is even more stressful.
It's the number one cause of divorce, parents would rather talk to their kids about sex & drugs than money (whaaaatt??) and it's the last taboo. It's easy to feel like a financial failure when you don't know what financial success looks like and don't know who you can ask.
How about we change all that?
If we change how we talk about it, we can change how we feel about it. There is so much shame and fear around money and it can feel like such a lonely journey.
The more we talk about it with each other and remove the emotional baggage we've all attached to it, the more we can focus on how to actually get to where we want to go.
Our workshops are designed to:
So, about the Hip Hop part...
Don't worry, we won't be teaching you any raps about compound interest or a dance for how to remember which bills to pay each month.
There is a huge focus in Hip Hop education on understand your identity in relation to the whole. By connecting Hip Hop and Finance, you not only begin to understand yourself and your relationship with money, but also how to build financial habits that resonate with your personal identity and how you learn and process information.
Hip Hop culture is inherently inclusive, community-focused, and entrepreneurship-led.
When you start to see how your skills and talents can benefit your community and those around you, talking about money is no longer a source of shame. It becomes a conversation about tools, strategies, and resources you can share and how your unique experiences and identity contribute to the big picture. When we start the financial planning conversation from a place that is rooted in the principles and philosophies of Hip Hop, we are using a shared language that makes everyone in the room feel heard and understood.
(Oh, and you may also learn how to beatbox.)
