In the first episode, Bryant will discuss real estate, the journey to home ownership and his own personal experience with purchasing property.

“Last year, I was honored to join the Board of the Black Effect Podcast Network. Now, I’m equally excited to join the incredible lineup of leaders creating content that enlightens and empowers our community,” said Bryant. “I’ve spent my career as an entrepreneur and executive dedicated to making sure we’re confident and equipped to succeed in the free enterprise system. The color today is not black or white or red or blue - it’s green, as in the color of money. I look forward to sharing not just what I’ve learned about making money, but most importantly, what I know about building wealth.”

“Money and Wealth” will join The Black Effect Podcast Network’s existing roster of highly popular business and finance shows including “That Moment with Daymond John,” and “Black Tech, Green Money” as listeners increasingly seek resources for self-improvement, financial wellness and wealth management from Black creators.

“John Hope Bryant’s unwavering commitment to fostering wealth within the black community perfectly aligns with The Black Effect Podcast Network’s values, and will undoubtedly inspire listeners across the country,” said Dollie S. Bishop, President of Creative Development and Production, The Black Effect Podcast Network. “We’re thrilled to bring ‘Money and Wealth’ to the network, and ultimately help listeners on their journey towards financial prosperity.”
