With the amount of talent, education, and sheer excellence within the Black community, “getting to the bag” is the easy part of the wealth journey. The more complex part of the journey is how wealth appreciates, and legacy is built. Acknowledging that not all people are privileged to consistently invest in side-hustles, passion projects, or wealth-building tools (stock market, digital currency, etc.), each person who earns money in any capacity must consider two things when determining their next money move. What are your liabilities, and what are your assets? Financial advisor Rashad Bilal and educator Troy Millings, hosts of the popular podcast Earn Your Leisure, suggest that people should always choose assets over liabilities, which is why they have an entire show dedicated to the topic, presented by REVOLT.

Sherrell Dorsey “Are people interested in this?” That’s what Dorsey asked herself when she launched The Plug in 2016.

Former Audio Podcast Duo Joins Quibi to 'Expand a Visual Landscape For Blackness'

There’s been a major shift in streaming services this year pushing for more Black-led and Black-centered content to be present.

Quibi — a short-form video service that officially launched on April 6 — included a slew of programs in their Daily Essentials lineup for daily-curated minutes long content. Among the bunch to originally launch with the streaming platform was “The Nod with Brittany & Eric” , a former audio podcast turned daily video series that digs into the stories of Black life that are not often told.
