The book

Did you know that Black wealth will fall to zero by 2053 unless we do something about it?

Shehara Wooten’s In the Meantime: Own Your Financial Narrative highlights people who have succeeded by creating their own definition of financial freedom. Systems exist that have excluded the Black community’s ability to achieve wealth. However, despite the challenges, readers can be inspired by the stories of others who have succeeded “in spite of.”

You’ll learn the power of values and tenacity and gain insights on personal finance while hearing about innovative and inspiring people, such as:

  • How O.W. Gurley, the founder of “Black Wall Street,” was ahead of his time
  • How to determine your values so you can create a path for financial success
  • How various entrepreneurs are creating their own definition of financial freedom
  • When you embrace the principles of In the Meantime, you can make a change for yourself, your family, and the generations to come.
