Episode 31: Why Achieving Financial Independence Matters For Communities of Color | Julie and Kiersten Saunders of rich & REGULAR

Episode 31 of the Yo Quiero Dinero Podcast features Julien & Kiersten Saunders, the powerhouse couple behind the award-winning blog and forthcoming book, rich & REGULAR.  Their mission is to inspire the African American community to consider and adopt the FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early) lifestyle as a path to building generational wealth.

The couple has used frugal living, real estate investing and their online business to set themselves on a path to achieving financial independence by 2021. Their story has been featured in publications like Forbes, the NY Times and CBS This Morning. When they’re not sharing stories about their experiences with money, they are parents to their son Beau, traveling the world or searching for their next great meal. You can follow Julien & Kiersten’s journey on their blog rich & REGULAR and check out their new YouTube series, Money On The Table. They’re also on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest!

In episode 31, we talk about:

  • Financial independence as a social justice issue
  • The purpose of financial freedom
  • The experience of facing data that is not in our favor, as a woman of color
  • Wealth as an ASSET when it comes to driving change
  • And the creation and normalization of #blackwealth

I LOVED this conversation— we talked money and how it intersects with wealth-building, the tension in surviving capitalism by participating in it, and reflect on the current times.
