While inflation is reminding us of the importance of having an emergency savings account, we’re also being encouraged to think more deeply about how to manage our finances all together. This current financial crisis is impacting most people, however, racialized communities are disproportionately impacted by the challenges that come with inflation.

Since then, Tembeka has left the financial services industry and is now pursuing management consulting with the Big 4, she continues to run the Rich Her platform, offering group and 1:1 coaching for those seeking personalized advice and guidance as it pertains to building a system for their dollars and aligning them with financial goals.
