About Cashing Out
When it comes to our finances, we’re told to follow the same script: work hard, make money, save, and invest. Sounds simple, right? Yet despite putting in twice the effort, you end up making less than your White colleagues and are routinely passed up for career opportunities, all while navigating microaggressions and racist hiring practices in the workplace.
Here’s the truth: financial freedom is within your reach, but playing by corporate America’s rules will only take you halfway there. To win, you must eventually walk away from their game—and take up an entirely different model of wealth accumulation.
Our first book, Cashing Out is your roadmap to financial freedom despite the broken system. You don’t have to sacrifice your time and mental health to maximize income. Instead, we show you how to design a life that allows you to enjoy the little things now while setting yourself up for future financial security. Drawing from our journey paying off $200,000 of debt in five years, quitting our high-stress corporate jobs, and retaking control of our finances, this book will teach you:
- Why the mantra and glitz of “Black Excellence” is an unsustainable motivation for wealth building
- How to prioritize the right goals at each stage of your career so you can quit in 15 years or less
- How to talk about money with your loved ones without coming to blows
- Why you’ll probably never feel “ready” to start the journey to financial freedom—and why that’s okay
- Practical strategies to bring more money in without robbing you of time and energy you don’t have
