Life is all about those money moves, or whatever rapper Cardi B said. 

On the latest episode of Black Tech Green Money (BTGM), tech-savvy businesswoman and host of “Money Moves,” Tanya Sam dropped by with a few gems on how to determine whether or not you’re making the right moves in regards to getting those coins!

During her hit show “Money Moves,” Sam chats with everyday people and celebrities about the ways in which they are building generational wealth. She dives into how oftentimes people may have the access and profile to make the big bucks but don’t see the financial reward.

“I think I can say this with some anecdotal evidence and confidence — a lot of it is the people you have around you,” she tells BTGM host Will Lucas. “Not having trusted financial advisors, people who really know their stuff. If you don’t know about money and you don’t know how to make the correct moves, you have to find people that you really trust that are experienced.”

She further explains how to build a successful team around you to reap some serious financial benefits.

Building A Solid Team

“Sometimes it’s not your homeboy, always look at it as if you’re building an Olympic team,” Sam continued. “Find people that are way smarter than you and that come with real personal references.”

Sam shares that this is one way to build a life centered around wealth and healthier financial habits.

Don't Keep Up With The Joneses

Furthermore, Sam explains that one way to miss out on the opportunity to make some serious cash is by spending your coins way too soon.

“My dad always used to talk about never cutting your coat from the cloth,” Sam recalled. “You don’t have like this idea of credit and trying to keep up with the Joneses, especially in our community, especially now in this era of social media. It happens a lot and you can often outspend yourself.”
