In the Great Resignation, Woods’ message rings true.

“We are our ancestors’ wildest dreams and financial freedom is an important part of that.” Paris Woods, author of The Black Girl’s Guide to Financial Freedom: Build Wealth, Retire Early, and Live the Life of Your Dreams.

Financial literacy is rarely taught and many people like author Paris Woods have to learn the rules of money the hard way. By age 30, Woods found herself in thousands of dollars in debt and under-earning financially despite the two Harvard degrees under her belt. With guidance from leaders in the FI/RE (financial independence, retire early) movement, Woods learned how to eliminate debt and build a healthy nest egg to weather future financial storms. That nest egg came in handy when she was later laid off during the pandemic, allowing her to take a comfortable break from working. Following this financial plan was “the ultimate insurance policy against life’s inevitable ups and downs” writes Paris in Business Insider.

“Paris’s relatable guide will teach you how to build wealth and live life on your own terms.” – Kristy Shen, co-author of Quit Like A Millionaire.
