On this webinar we discuss fundamentals of building wealth including real estate, credit and much more to get us on a sound path of wealth building by doing things that are in our everyday control.
Sonia Booker is a sought after entrepreneurial innovator and financial growth expert who owns an impressive portfolio of residential and commercial investment properties. She has earned the name, “Wealth Builder” because so many people have learned how to purchase property and build wealth by listening to what she has to say. During the last year, more than 100,000 people have heard her speak at invitation only gatherings such as Coca-Cola’s Women Leadership Group, Women in Communications’ Color Comm or public events, such as The National Urban League and Women Thou Art Loosed conventions. She is a featured wealth building financial expert who also has created two annual, signature sold out events of her own; the iBuild Wealth Workshop and Everything Real Estate Conference & Expo, recently joining forces as an Influencer for Think Realty to broaden her reach..
Sonia gained her insights about wealth by living what she teaches. At age 24, she was the youngest person ever to own an independent insurance agency with Allstate. She sold her profitable business, four years later, to build a real estate business. However, she’s has always wanted to do more than just create wealth for herself. So, she wrote the Real Estate & Wealth: Investing in the American Dream book. This Essence bestseller helped her meet one of the wealthiest African-American business owners in the country, Herman J. Russell. He wrote the foreword for her book and, subsequently, spent twelve years as her business partner. She helped profitably run H.J. Russell Enterprises, LLC. Together they turned more than 400 apartments into condominiums and she managed $50 million in asset during their business relationship.
In 2016, Sonia released her latest book Self Wealth for Women: An Inspirational Book & Journal to speak to the growing financial divide among women. In this book, Sonia reveals a blueprint to building wealth and shares her personal journey and the stories of other women who have chartered their own course towards not only building wealth but also leaving a lasting legacy. She’s now co-authoring Self Wealth for Men with her financial partner Gerald Fils, which will be available in 2017.
Sonia recently featured in O, The Magazine and continues to share her message to an increasingly wider audience. She contributes wealth building information for several publications and can be seen on NBC and FOX news programs sharing financial advice. She shares her knowledge regularly on The Sonia Booker Radio Show heard on Biz 1190 AM every Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. EST.
