Nationwide — A groundbreaking literary collaboration spearheaded by Dr. Constance Craig-Mason, MRFC® is changing the financial landscape for BIPOC families and small business owners across the nation. Money TALK$: Uncut Convos with Financial Experts on How to Grow, Leverage and Protect Your Assets is a remarkable new book authored by 24 accomplished Black financial thought-leaders, robust with the diversity of voices and perspectives it brings to the realm of financial education.
This diversity reflects the richness of the Black community and its resilience in the face of economic challenges. This collective effort aims to ignite a spark of financial wisdom, empowerment, and lasting change within communities that have been historically underserved.
The foreword is penned by Dr. Les Brown, one of the world’s renowned motivational speakers and voted one of the Top Five Outstanding Speakers Worldwide by Toastmasters International. He remarked, “Changing how we view money, assets, and wealth is critical to real financial success. And that’s exactly what the visionary, Dr. Constance Craig-Mason, and the co-authors accomplish with this book. I recommend reading the insights contained within and getting a copy for someone you love.”
An excerpt from Rahkim Sabree, CFEI®, RFC®, co-author and The Plutus Foundation’s “People’s Choice Award” winner in the category “Written Content” for his Substack newsletter, “Overcoming Financial Trauma”: “Financial trauma for Black Americans is deeply rooted in the historical context of systemic racism, beginning with the atrocities of slavery and continuing through the persistent inequalities that exist today. This aspect of financial trauma is intertwined with a larger generational trauma that has shaped the experiences of Black individuals and communities. It has led to the deep-seated mistrust of financial institutions and systems, as they have historically perpetuated and reinforced racial disparities.”

Money TALK$ Vol III is not just another finance book; it’s a catalyst for change. It’s a call to action for families and small business owners to take control of their financial future.
One of the book’s primary objectives is to help readers establish a $1,000 emergency savings fund, a goal that often eludes many households. According to a 2023 Bankrate statistic, a startling 57 percent of adult Americans are unprepared for financial emergencies, making them vulnerable to unexpected crises. Money TALK$ Vol III offers practical, step-by-step guidance on how individuals and families can achieve this crucial financial milestone.
Dr. Craig-Mason, in partnership with Advantage Publishing, created the “Money TALK$ Emergency Savings Challenge & Tool Kit” to include the Money TALK$ Vol III hardcover book and a custom Paycheck Power BOOSTER® Calculator used to help “Find the Money You Need” to save your 1st $1,000.
To celebrate the launch of the Money TALK$ Emergency Savings Challenge & Tool Kit, a week-long, virtual media takeover began on October 23rd to include social media posts, email blasts, live interviews, magazine features, press releases, etc by not only the co-authors, but also from 60+ strategic partners globally! International partners in Australia, London, Canada, Rwanda, Liberia, Nigeria and Ghana have joined in to make this movement a global success!
During the media takeover, readers and supporters will have the opportunity to engage with the co-authors, participate in discussions, and gain additional insights into achieving financial
well-being via the exclusive Facebook group.
