wealth building guide In January 2000, BLACK ENTERPRISE introduced the Black Wealth Initiative with the goal of making you wealthier. Since then, we’ve given out approximately 87,000 wealth building kits, spreading our message of fiscal responsibility through paying yourself first, making every dollar count through enlightened consumerism, and implementing a systematic program of investing to keep your family financially secure for generations to come. By your testimony, it’s been working. The 10 wealth- building principles that have anchored our Declaration of Financial Empowerment have helped many of you move closer to your financial goals. But we want to do better. That’s why, as we enter 2004, we are re-introducing the 10 Wealth Building Principles of the Black Wealth Initiative. The new Declaration of Financial Empowerment has two major revisions. First, we’ve placed an emphasis on homeownership. Principle No. 1: TO USE HOMEOWNERSHIP TO BUILD WEALTH drives home what the wealthy have known for generations: that real estate is a linchpin to building a fortune. We’ve also placed greater emphasis on mastering your money with our new Principle No. 3: TO COMMIT TO A PROGRAM OF RETIREMENT PLANNING AND INVESTING . We want to reinforce the idea that only a planned approach to saving can safeguard your future and help you achieve your financial goals. You’ll find other minor adjustments, but the motive of The Black Wealth Initiative is still the same—to help you become wealthy. We hope the new and improved Declaration of Financial Empowerment will be even more effective in meeting the goal Publisher Earl G. Graves Sr. intended for African Americans: to create wealth by building the cornerstones of economic empowerment through education, equity, enterprise, and excellence. —The Editors

t BLACK ENTERPRISE , we have embraced the concept of wealth building for three decades. We have always believed that African Americans must fully participate in the free enterprise system, whether it is through the ownership of businesses or investment in the capital markets. Now that we are in the 21st century, we are calling on each and every African American to realize his or her full financial potential through the Black Wealth Initiative. This is far more than a new column or special issue of BE devoted to personal finance. The Black Wealth Initiative is nothing less than an ongoing campaign aimed at challenging you to join the black wealth building movement by committing to specific principles of disciplined savings and investing. First, we have broken down the intimidating complexities of finance to ten accessible prin- ciples of wealth accumulation. We call it the BLACK ENTERPRISE Declaration of Financial Empowerment (DOFE). Commit to these principles by signing DOFE, put them into practice and you will begin to amass wealth for yourself and your family. To help you follow through
