It’s no secret that these recent hard economic times have been harder on the ethnic community, particularly among African-Americans. However, despite the harsh numbers of high unemployment and poverty rates, there still remains a small minute class of wealthy Black millionaires who despite their background and upbringing, were able to acquire true long-term generation wealth.
Dennis Kimbro is a tireless educator, author, and B-school professor. Dr. Kimbro is universally characterized as one of the most insightful and scholarly writers in the field today. As a lecturer and researcher in the field of management, entrepreneurship and human potential, he encourages his readers to look within to extract the keys that underlie all accomplishment.
In Dr. Kimbro’s The Wealth Choice, Kimbro had the honor to study, research, and sit down with the elite Black millionaires, and find the similarities and differences between the them, and break it down in layman’s terms for those of us (like me) who aspire to become the next Black millionaire of our time.
In The Wealth Choice, Kimbro reveals the findings of a seven-year survey of 1,000 of the wealthiest African-Americans of our time. Kimbro shows how business leaders, entrepreneurs, and celebrities found their path to wealth and financial freedom; what they did or didn’t learn about money early on; what they had to sacrifice to get to the top; and the role of discipline in managing their successes.
Kimbro provides a Britannica of useful, informative, motivating, and inspiring information for a person of ANY age who aspires nothing but greatness for themselves and their future. Through The Wealth Choice, Kimbro provides a roadmap to success even when the odds seem stacked against you.
The Wealth Choice is an inspirational guide for African-Americans from every walk of life looking to achieve lasting financial prosperity.
Quotes from The Wealth Choice:
“Yes similar to wealth, poverty begins in the mind….You doubt me? Walk or travel among the have-nots and, invariably, you will find them discussing poverty, explaining poverty, and bewailing their fate, their hard luck, the cruelty, and injustice of it all.”
“If you truly believe that you are a child of the Creator, the possessor of all thing, “in Him in whom all fullness lies,” and that you were not intended for poverty–you will not be poor long.”
“Your fortune is not something to find but to unfold. We do not go through life, we grow through life. Your greatest strength is developed and your best work is done when you struggle for that which you have yet to possess.”
These quotes are all just from the 1st chapter of The Wealth Choice! Trust me there is nothing but jewels and gems to gain from reading a self-help book like this. No matter if you’re a college freshman, an entry-level employee, or a middle-aged parent, if you’re tired of being sick and tired then this is a book for you to read.

Dymond John (Shark Tank), Harry Johnson, Spike Lee, Tyler Pery, Barbara Smith, Lisa Price, T.D. Jakes, Cathy Hughes, Kirk Franklin, Steve Harvey, Tyrese Gibson, Ken Brown, and Farrah Gray.
