Financial Family Reunion Summit

2023 Recap


The Financial Family Reunion Summit 2023 was held online on February 11, 2023, and we are humbled and energized at the fabulous turn out! If you missed it you can visit our page dedicated to the Summit and learn more about our speakers and what we discussed. It was an amazing time with a marvelous group of people. Let’s take a look.

Attendance, Speakers, and Sponsors

Can you believe we had 632 Black and brown households register for our Summit? Of that number, 122 Black and brown households were in attendance. We can’t tell you what a blessing and an honor it was to educate these households about investing, building generational wealth, and so much more. 

Our speakers included well-known Black voices such as Ryan Boyles of the NFL, Ollen Douglass of The Motley Fool, Karrie Carden of Equip Advisory, Joshua Samuel of Coins for College, Raine Sellers, a financial analyst, and our very own Ruby Taylor of Financial Joy School

We were able to keep the event free of charge for the public due to our fantastic financial sponsors, and we’d like to give them a special thank you. Our sponsors include Trust & Will, the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center, and the Navy Federal Credit Union

What Our Attendees Had to Say

It is so good to hear from the Black and brown community with events such as these, to encourage and applaud all of us for getting educated together and taking that first step to growing our generational wealth. Here is some of what our attendees had to say about the Summit:

“My son and I really enjoyed the event. It was very informative.” ~Marie Roker-Jones

A Financial Success

We’re calling our Financial Family Reunion Summit 2023 a huge financial success! If you didn’t get a chance to register or attend, don’t worry—we hold our Summit every February during Black History Month. What better time to celebrate our future by remembering how far we’ve come? Thank you to everyone who made our Summit great, and congratulations to all our winners.
