Publisher's Summary

At long last, John Hope Bryant lays out five simple rules to provide a path to economic liberation for anyone in any situation. The Memo provides a simple path from financial literacy and mindset shifts to ownership, positive relationships, and a completely new attitude toward money. In a provocative exploration of the intersections of race and class, Bryant preaches the definitive conclusion that to be free, one must be economically liberated. Listeners will learn how to achieve economic power in the following chapters:

  • We live in a free enterprise system - embrace this.
  • Your mindset makes or loses you money and wealth.
  • Your relationships are your investments - your most important relationship is with yourself.
  • Don't "get a job" - create value. You are capital.
  • Spiritual capital is the start of true wealth.

Those who suffer from poverty haven't gotten "the memo" - until now. For decades, John Hope Bryant has reached out to the underserved in our "free enterprise" system. Through Operation HOPE, he has reached tens of thousands of people. In this work, he's found that most problems that stem from racism are directly linked to economic slavery. The five rules are spelled out clearly: Listeners must embrace the "free" in free enterprise, shift their mindset, build relationships, switch from working a job to actively creating value from within, and realize that they can never be truly wealthy without hope.

Any additional comments?

John Hope Bryant shares wisdom from a perspective of creating generational wealth. Many people were never taught on how to create the seeds needed to grow wealth. In this book he shares the foundation and resources needed to: 1. Change your mindset about finances 2. Take explicit action to make the change 3. To create goals to self sustain 4. Teach family and friends to do the same. He shares with you the resources and cites examples of people who have done it successfully. The goal of this book is to motivate one to take the first step which can be very hard and scary for someone who has never thought in this fashion. This is a book that should be gifted to friends, family and colleagues. Great book!

Phenomenal book

This is an exceptional book that I'd recommend & believe "all" should read in this vastly changing global, economic environment. In particular, this is strongly a required read / listen for children of color (A.A.).

Actionable advice for the masses

This is one of the best books I've read in a while. There is a plethora of knowledge, mixed with a dose of reality and humor you won't find from many writing about the same topic. Where some are comfortable sugar coating the seriousness of OUR present economic situation. While others still are only lamenting about the economic inequality that has been quietly eroding one class of society. As it simultaneously tightens the shackles of poverty on another. Mr. Bryant isn't just giving you more facts to be unhappy about or someone to point the finger at. He is offering a HAND UP! If your looking for some magic money pill, or scheme to make millions doing no work this book isn't for you. If you want your hand held as someone tells you all the same things that have gotten you right where you are. This book isn't for you. If your ready to take charge of your financial education and future this book IS FOR YOU!
