What would you do if Black Enterprise gave you $2,000? Enter our Financial Fitness Contest and you may have to make that decision. As part of Black Enterprise’s Wealth for Life thrust, we hold a monthly Financial Fitness Contest in which we help one of you solve some overwhelming financial challenge with the help of a financial advisor, our editorial team and $2,000 to kick-start your wealth-building program.
For a decade, Black Enterprise has awarded scores of our readers $2000 to kick-start their financial lives through our Financial Fitness Contest. So far, we’ve given away nearly a quarter million dollars, and counting. Take our poll and tell us: What you would do if you received the cash prize?
