Jamilah N. McCluney
(Founder & CEO)
It sounds cliché’ I know, but helping people has always been a passion of mine. I grew up in an entrepreneurial family where my grandfather was a business owner as well as both of my parents. I worked in my parents’ businesses as a little girl and reaped the benefits as they made hundreds of thousands of dollars in the 80s. At one point, my parents owned a beauty supply store and 3 hair salons at the same time. Growing up with such a background afforded us a lot of luxuries like private school, music lessons, nice cars, and a nice home.
With poor money management and horrible financial decisions, my parents lost every last business and all of the money they had worked so hard to obtain. To put it plainly, we lost everything. Out went the private school and music lessons. Nice cars switched to no car at all, and a nice home turned to a simple apartment. Luxuries vanished as we experienced, the struggle. My father died a couple years ago with nothing to his name, no financial legacy to leave to his 3 children and no businesses for us to take over.
Out of that loss and the sad realization of what didn’t have to be, Black Wealth Financial was born. I created Black Wealth Financial to provide you with a financial plan and blueprint. We exist to help you manage your finances and to provide you with financial education so that you can enjoy the luxuries in life debt and stress free, while simultaneously building a financial legacy for you and your family to enjoy for many, many, years to come.
