Black and Brown Make Green

A financial empowerment podcast to inspire, inform, and encourage young and mid-career professionals to manage their money with confidence.


61: Where is the Hope?

Where is the hope? Rising prices, stagnant wages, and climbing debt can make life feel hopeless. How can you afford a home with today’s high prices and interest rates? How can you keep up with inflation when salary and wages are not keeping up with inflation? How do you handle the current economic challenges that make things seem hopeless?

Hope is a powerful tool that can help us to overcome challenges and to achieve our goals. Even when things are tough, there is always hope.

We discuss some real-life tips and strategies to help you find hope and deal with high costs and low wages. We hope that you will keep hope alive, be inspired by this conversation on remaining hopeful, and pick up some useful tips on managing your money too.
