As a result of that, we’ve launched a series right here on WealthLAB TV called #MoneyTalks, dedicated to unlocking opportunity while the ‘Rona got the world shook.
Introducing #MoneyTalks on WealthLAB TV…
For that, we’ve enlisted impact investor/wealthlab.co editor Philip Michael as de facto WealthLAB TV host to help break down some ways to start investing, build a better network and capitalizing on opportunities during this pandemic.
“There’s no better time than now to start investing, start building a new skill set or just expanding your network,” says Philip, who started in 2014 as a writer with $79 in seed money.
We’ll be dropping daily vids, with gems dropping en masse on a variety of topics.
About your host…
OK, so if you don’t know Phil, here’s the official bio, jargon and all: Philip Michael is an entrepreneur, investor, bestselling author, and real estate developer.
(He also created wealthlab and #openstage, but that’s another story for another time…)
“Our goal—mission really—is to help 100,000 Millennials from underserved communities, whether it’s women or minorities, become financially independent,” he says.
In addition, he’s an early-stage venture capital investor in women and minority-led startups.
His Instagram account is one of the littest money pages on the ‘Gram, growing by over 400% per month.
A former journalist, Philip’s currently a business columnist whose stuff’s been seen on Forbes, Entrepreneur, Black Enterprise, Biggerpockets.com, Business.com and others.
