These eight online platforms led by Black women aim to teach us how to get our money right. From budgeting to investing to paying off student loans and beyond, these women will help us all move toward finding financial freedom.

It's time to hit the reset button to learn essential tips, so let's check out a few top personal finance websites and platforms that will help you do just that:

Brown Ambition

Founders Tiffany "The Budgetnista" Aliche and Mandi Woodruff are both long-time powerhouse personal finance experts. They've partnered up to launch the Brown Ambition Podcast, a weekly show to help you live your best financial and professional life. Tiffany and Mandi give it to you to straight, no chaser.

 Hello Seven

Hello Seven was founded in 2017 by Rachel Rodgers, an intellectual property attorney and business coach.

Jamila Souffrant created Journey to Launch, documenting her journey to financial independence. She went from traveling for more than three hours to work every day to finding financial freedom by working for herself. The platform's podcast features guests that share financial tips as well as their own personal journeys toward financial freedom.

Finances Demystified

Finances Demystified was founded in 2012 by Dominique Broadway. After working at a brokerage firm that focused on high net-worth individuals, she learned how the wealthy successfully managed their money. Noticing a gap in the industry that made wealth building inaccessible to many, she decided to educate individuals about personal finance and show them how they, too, can become high net-worth earners.

Marsha Barnes founded The Finance Bar in 2014. She's a financial expert with a decade of experience, and her platform helps women and couples achieve financial wellness through coaching, education, and an innovative learning hub.

Frugal Feminista

Kara Stevens is the founder of Frugal Feminista, a personal finance and personal development company launched in 2014. She is committed to helping women heal their relationships with money and with themselves and help women to become happy, wealthy, and brave so they can unapologetically live life on their terms.

The Student Loan Doctor

Too many people are buried underneath student loan debt, watching interest accumulate astronomically over time. Sonia Lewis, AKA "The Student Loan Doctor," launched her platform to provide coaching and consumer advocacy services, and she's helped more than 20,000 clients nationwide to eliminate federal student loan debt.

This is something that I've been wanting to write about for a while now. There are a few reasons why too. One is that I grew up hearing that happiness is an emotion — and a fleeting one at that; that's why the focus should actually be more on being in a state of joy. Secondly, I can't tell you how many times I have looked a husband or wife in the eye as they told me they were leaving their marriage — not because of infidelity or abuse; it was simply because "I'm not happy anymore" (more on that in a bit). And three, I also can't tell you how many times a day will go by without me hearing or reading some variation of "do whatever makes you happy". LAWD.

So, here's the deal about store-bought lubricant. Oftentimes, when people think about using it, it's in reference to "treating" vaginal dryness or making sex easier post-menopause (when our vagina walls tend to be thinner and our natural lubrication isn't as much as it once was). However, as you're about to see in just a few minutes, it really doesn't matter how wet you're naturally able to get or how old you are, everyone should have at least a few tubes of lube in their possession — an oil-based kind for non-penetrative sexual stimulation; a water-based one for sexy toys (or if you or your partner's genitalia is naturally sensitive) and a silicone-based one for intercourse.

We all know the feeling. You plop down in a stylist's seat excitedly waiting for your slay to begin, only to be met with a look of panic when they actually lay eyes on your hair. As a woman with thick and coarse 4C textured hair, I know that gaze well. Sadly, so do most Black women, and it's been an ongoing problem in the entertainment world for decades.
