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.

John Hope Bryant nailed it!

This book captures what my parents and grandparents modeled in front of me. They could have wrote The Memo! Now I have no excuses and neither will my grown children and grandchildren. This book should be required reading in every inner city school and every church that ministers to the impoverished masses regardless of race!

Truly Awakening and Inspiring

I wish I came across this book sooner. JHB lays out very pointed and key rules to help all achieve economic freedom. He also goes beyond the financial focus and dives into the mental and spiritual aspects that impact our lives. A true must read for all!

Thanks for The Memo

This is one of the best audiobooks that I have experienced. John Hope Bryant effectively outlines five simple steps for financial independence. He does a great job of telling the story of his personal and professional experiences. This is a must-read for anyone looking to make the shift in thinking needed to achieve wealth, to gain more self-determination and economic freedom.

The Memo Moved Me (and my credit score too!)

When people often talk about economic plight in the U.S. and beyond, I hear a lot of what’s not working and less of what can be done. The Memo gave me simple, specific, step-by-step, strategies toward my personal, financial empowerment. If there were ever a book I plan on passing down to my kids, this is it!

Bryant not only speaks about the present problems but ties them to the past and intentions of slain thought leaders of yesteryear to empower people of color toward this vital information that tragically never panned out completely or wasn’t communicated.

In short, the Memo brings both the past and the present together with a practical road map towards awareness and financial freedom.
