We had the good fortune of connecting with Queen Candace and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Queen, how does your business help the community?
Queen Candace is our Money Management Strategist™️. She’s from Brooklyn, NY, and has a Bachelors in Psychology. Growing up her family wasn’t very knowledgeable about finances and passed down quite a few financial generational curses. In 2015 she found herself in 50K debt. During her debt payoff journey, she realized a lot of her spending was due to emotional triggers. She used her knowledge of psychology, mental health diagnosis, financial research along with trial and error to clear her debt. Not only that but within the same year of paying off the rest of her debt, she also established her business and purchased her first home at the age of 26
Her mission is to help the Black community switch to a wealth mindset through financial literacy, financial planning, and financial therapy. She’s assisted over 20 clients achieve financial stability, facilitated over 10 workshops & masterclasses as well as spoken/hosted multiple events in-person & virtually

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to shout out to my family who has supported my entrepreneurship journey from the start. Specifically, my dad Aaron, Mom Lisa, and brother Kwame. They’ve supported by providing not only moral support but monetary as well.
Definitely my amazing assistant Bianca! She’s been an intricate and significant part of my success during this growth stage.
And every single one of my partners, business besties, and clients, they all keep me going.
