This is a reflection on a conversation I had with a student in The Black Wealth Bootcamp. A woman explained to me why she’d joined the bootcamp, and how corporate America had let her down. She said that she was six months pregnant, had just bought a house and was in a very vulnerable financial situation.
Her story is not uncommon in corporate America, as many people find themselves suddenly hit with the devastation of job loss. I share her story here, but also how she responded. There are also interesting lessons about being dependent on corporate America and relying on your oppressor to pay your bills.
Take a look.
