Dricka Carter currently teaches entrepreneurs around the country wealth-building strategies that will help them thrive through the recession, inflation, and any uncertain climate. She is a serial mompreneur, author, and wealth development coach at Carter Capital, PLLC, the first 24-hour wealth development firm and institute in New Orleans. She achieved 7-figures as a first-generation college graduate, with a Bachelor of Science in Business Entrepreneurship and Accounting from Southern University at New Orleans and an alumnus of Louisiana State University (MBA). With over nine years of financial services experience, she recently hosted a Black Wealth Summit in Tulum and will host the next in Toronto, Canada, to help shift how people think about wealth.
What are the primary ways that you help women reach financial goals:
Dricka: I help women grow wealth by being more confident, budgeting and building. Wealth is bigger than money. Most women wear so many hats they never truly discover who they are. We shy away from sisterhoods because we haven’t experienced genuineness. I made it my mission to help women change the narrative. In the past nine months, I have single-handedly created six-figure earners, helped moms become debt free, send their kids to college, and learn new skills that can potentially break generational curses, which ultimately build wealth.
What advice would you give to a brand new Mompreneur?
Dricka: Put yourself first. It’s easier said than done on most days. However, you can not be a great mom or business owner if you’re not mentally, physically, spiritually, and financially stable. You will not build a sustainable brand if you don’t prioritize yourself as a human before any other title. Stop putting yourself last!
