The Broke Black Girl: How a Facebook Group Became A Financial Movement for African American Women

This is a great story, that I break down into 5 steps:
1. What’s the challenge?
2. What’s the future you dream of? Little dreams are fine!
3. Research tools and programs for a limited time.
4. Design practical change systems.
5. Do the work and remember to celebrate each tiny milestone.

It’s true that having a community is a part of this life change movement.
But I find that my biggest obstacle is myself – changing myself and documenting the process is how I’m going to overcome my challenges and help people who want to overcome their challenges too.

Determined to make a change, she learned how to balance her finances and began documenting her journey toward economic freedom on social media. That led her to create a Facebook group in November 2017 called The Broke Black Girl where she shared tools and resources for fiscal success with other black women. The group ballooned into an active platform where African American women around the country would share their own financial trials, tribulations, and tips. Members also encourage one another and hold each other accountable. Within six months, the group had 30,000 members.

Paying debt will be much easier with a side hustle that works. So, that’s part of my main reason for exploring this, and I want to share with other unconventional women in their 60s.3 savers
