Andre Albritton, the founder of The Millennials Next Door, is a nationally recognized personal finance expert focusing on how to solve the financial problems millennials and centennials face. His clear-cut approach to personal finance helps simplify how individuals can achieve financial freedom and reframe wealth, and his website aims to show people how to make their money work for them. Andre’s work has been featured on Blavity, HBCU Wall Street, and in addition to his courses and blog, he hosts The Flavor Podcast.
Andre joins me today to share why he pivoted his focus from insurance to investment and why he made the decision to build his side hustle into a full-time business rather than work for someone else.
He discusses the factors holding millennials and centennials back from reaching their financial goals and how he works with people to focus in on how to take steps to gain financial freedom.
Andre also shares his knowledge and expertise on real estate investing and why he is running a virtual summit to help give people a taste of how and why to invest in real estate.
“There are so many flavors to investing – and there is plenty of money for all of us, we can all come to the table and get seconds and even thirds.” – Andre Albritton
