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

Check out episode 31 of Yo Quiero Dinero, personal finance podcast for the modern Latina. Available wherever you listen to podcasts!

Episode 31 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, Julien, Kiersten and I 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
  • 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.
