The People Behind Wealth with Dana Wilson

On the second episode of the Founders Get Funds (FGF) podcast, TheTagan sat down with Dana Wilson of CHIP (Changing How Individuals Prosper). This conversation is enriching and fulfilling for any aspiring entrepreneurs looking to grow and scale their business. Ms.Wilson discussed her experience as a financial expert and advisor for the past decade. As a former Wall Street Investment Advisor, Dana knows a lot about stocks, bonds, investing, and saving. In a male-driven industry, Dana has overcome so many barriers to be a true pioneer in the financial industry. Her experience gives her the opportunity to support and create opportunities for people of color.

According to Dana, there are very few, if any people of color in the financial industry teaching our community about wealth. Her idea has flourished into a business that provides financial resources for minorities that feel excluded from the 1%. There needs to be a powerful voice for people of color in different communities regarding the different financial options. Dana Wilson has become that voice of reason to create change. It’s pivotal to think about wealth in different ways to secure the bag as an entrepreneur. More importantly, you want to have your personal finances in order. The informal conversation in this podcast episode broke down the financial experts one should have on their team, digital strategies, and how the process can be streamlined.

There are digital strategies that can help you grow your brand effectively. When you look at how to grow in our day and age, you must consider marketing as a valuable option. Dana had some great advice about marketing her business to different communities. She has used Facebook and other media platforms to report financial advice, tips, and news for people of color in different communities. We must stay together and help each other prosper. There must be more leaders of color with opportunities to increase their wealth at all cost. This was a great conversation!

As a small business owner in the midst of a pandemic, saving your coins is a great option to think about. The culture of entrepreneurship has shifted over the last few months. Entrepreneurs have been faced with challenges and opportunities. The choice is up to us to create economic opportunities for our communities. If we are to create our own businesses that withstand unemployment rates, recessions, and political injustice then we must think bigger. As a lifestyle blogger, I look at important topics within different industries that reflect progress. I stumbled across a unique podcast that taught me the value of saving as an entrepreneur.
