How many hours a day do you spend trying to achieve excellence? How many hours a day do you dedicate to building everyone else’s legacy but your own? Therein lies the problem.
Let our actions become the solutions
This is what a wealth builder looks like. Meet Aineya Ricketts, a phenomenal wealth builder who’s boldly gained control of her debt and bad spending habits since 2015 and has never looked back.
She’s now able to save and invest on a consistent basis.
P.S Her son loves getting new toys but he loves knowing he owns shares in those companies

You asked to learn more about investing & I delivered!!! Early Bird Registration is now OPEN for our new "Ways to Invest Outside of Stocks" online class!! Our last @empify stocks class had over 1,000 registered students & now, we are taking it one step further. During this 2-hour online class, we will dig deeper into investing. Buying individual stocks is great, however there are so many more ways for you to build wealth.
You will learn what to invest in, how to invest & how to find good companies. We will break everything down & we will give you the step-by-step rundown of how to build out your own investment plan. Each investment we walk through is accessible to people of all income levels! So, if you only have less than $100, you can invest in every new investment we talk about!!

We know that voice in your head that constantly tells you to “treat yourself.” It sounds like it has your best interest at heart, but here’s a great wealth building rule to live by when it comes to making large purchases.
This is what an Empified classroom looks like

We got through our lesson that talked about checking & savings accounts, now it's time to talk about what's going to give you real economic power...INVESTING. Our @empify students made a list of the companies they always give their time & money to. Then, we outlined all the companies they'd want to invest in. We didn't get a chance to talk about HOW to invest, but these guys stayed after class to get more information on how they could invest in those companies. It's not that our kids dont want to learn, we just need to create a culturally relevant curriculum that can engage them, but also stretch them. Don't just do. Show. Teach. Reach them at their level. #empify#ashleymfox#wealthbuilders#philly#empifyu#investing
Our Empify students have been a true blessing. Bringing financial education to every school, child, and family is our ultimate goal! Giving people a stepping stone in life has been our biggest achievement.
When the going gets tough, real wealth builders invest more. We cannot get scared like everyone else when stock prices start to drop. When stocks get cheaper, that’s when it’s time to do the research and buy. Afterall, you chose to invest in companies you believe would be around for the long haul, right?
What if we not only taught our kids how to spend money, but also ways to invest money? We can teach our kids how to enjoy the money they earn, and we can teach them how to build their own wealth. Let’s invest in our children and for our children.
Our mini wealth builders learned that the stock market still opens and closes at regular hours even when they’re on Spring Break! Now they can use everything they’ve learned this semester during our Empify programs to build wealth while they’re on vacation.
Finding the discipline needed to become a wealth builder can be difficult. If you believe that you don’t have enough money or that you cannot save enough money to invest, you will never start. Change your mindset! Change your bank account!
Dividends are what you receive when a company does well and can afford to share its profits with its shareholders. Make sure you are reinvesting those dividends, so that you can live off of them in the future.
We knew that taking our students to Wall Street would be important, but we couldn’t have imagined how important! Last year, we facilitated our 1st Wall Street Trip. However, this year, we are doing 4 big Wall Street Trips!!
Educating our student on how interest can work for you AND against you! The moment our students graduate high school, credit card companies will come knocking at their door, and they must have the confidence to say NO! Empify High educated all our high school students on how credit cards work & how they must never depend on them 💪🏾
“I don’t think it is an exaggeration to say that financial literacy, economic empowerment, and wealth building is going to be the last leg of the civil rights movement. Because one step toward financial literacy takes you two steps toward personal empowerment.” - Russell Simmons
"The strength of a woman is her intellectual mind,
oh so chic with the words she speaks.
It’s the versatile
qualities she uses without spirit of guile." - Naomi Johnson
This week, founder of Empify, @_ashleymfox was interviewed by TheStreet. Click the link in our bio to find out how Ashley inspires her students to believe in themselves and believe that they are great enough to be more than what they've been surrounded by.
Why do you guys think this mini wealth builder has this look on his face? 🤔
Hint: It has something to do with the expected cost of a college education by the time he's old enough to attend college.
I've never ever read a book so fast, I barely even read books but this one, oh man..... .
As immigrants, we are always being thought that education is out only way out. Funny thing though, my mum (a person with no official school education) is the one making more out of her financial life than my father, a 'smart' 'educated' person who is too dependent on the system. I'm lucky to have a great example of this right in front of my eyes.
About the book: Such a different perspective, a whole new lifestyle to discover. Some may not agree with what is said here about 'working for money' vs 'Money working for you', but it is deffs worth a read

Stop selling YOURSELF short. Don’t sell out. Stop REACTING to life and start being PROACTIVE. .
DM for a one-on-one appointment to make a financial strategy to prepare YOU for YOUR future.
Unfortunately, they won’t. No need to beat yourself up though. Just answer the phone, and be honest with both them AND yourself. Building wealth involves you being solution-oriented, not problem-driven. Time to build a debt pay-down plan.
Our mini wealth builders look forward to Mondays. It's another week to feed their curiosity, empower them to stay on the path to becoming life long wealth builders and modify the negative beliefs they may have about money.
Did you hear? Our Founder, @_ashleymfox is helping to create wealth builders all the way in Africa! We know what you're thinking, but no worries --- Yes, while she's away, Wealth Builder shirts will still be available on the Empify website.
Our kids are curious. They want to learn about money, and they want us to take the time to teach them about it. Imagine how much farther ahead many of us would be if someone took the time to simply teach us HOW money makes the world go round.
Our mini wealth builder may have just found out how much money is really needed to start buying stocks. No worries, after our class, she now knows that she too can own stock in all the social media apps she uses.
