Anne-Lyse Wealth began her career working at Ernst & Young in Atlanta. Before embarking on her journey to increase financial literacy in the Black community, she had a 10+ year career in Accounting
After identifying a personal finance knowledge gap among Black professionals, Anne-Lyse began to
educate her family, friends, and coworkers on the subject. As her interest in personal finance increased,
she noticed the lack of book options providing financial education to the Black community.
With her first book, Anne-Lyse decided to share her knowledge to help the Black community improve
its relationship with money, and build generational wealth.

I love this book!!! It is full of useful information for adults and raising kids. Written with some specific financial words but in a simple way that helps even non-finance readers to understand what is being said and recommended. I love that its made of personal experience that Anne-Lyse has shared not has a “must do” but as “a way” to do to raise our kids and ourselves through financial independence; in fact, although she recommend what she has done, she keeps in mind that people may want to do something else and thus remain open and flexible in the recommendations that she makes. As someone who has moved recently to the US, I also liked the fact that she opens our eyes on some tricky day-to-day activities that might be armful for us if we do not master all the pro and cons of all what we get involved or committed to; I would have loved to read this a year ago, it may have prevented of making some mistakes. Proud to have bought this book and definitely recommend it to everyone looking at becoming financially independent on a long-term run, and getting our black community out of the legacy of slavery in this country.
Dream of Legacy is not just a book but a daily financial guide every black parent not excluding young adult MUST have. It is straightforward and made easy to understand even for finance illiterates. I enjoyed every single page and I recommend everyone seeking financial freedom to buy it without hesitating.
It is encouraging seeing a lady who thinks of her community and shares the secrets to avoid poverty, financial stress and inferiority complex.
Thanks to Anne-lyse for this beautiful work

This book has been an eye-opener for me. First, it reinforced the idea that I add value to the society in which I live, but I need to acquire financial knowledge to actively contribute to the prosperity of the black community. Anne-Lyse Wealth dissects the financial knowledge I need to understand and has set me on my path to financial independence. I am proud to say that I am part of the F.I.R.E group (read the book if you want to know what that means), because I am looking for ways to spend time on the things that bring joy and peace, and not to spend time on the relentless pursuit of money. Ultimately, I hope to pass on the instructions from the book to my black community and future generations so that we can be successful. If you have to start somewhere financially, look no further, this is the curriculum on generating wealth.

I have read lots of books on personal finance and wealth but never have I read anything addressing this topic from a Black perspective.
As a black entrepreneur and father living in North America, this book really provides in a simplest and efficient way the tools to not only help you and your family achieve financial independence but also instill in your kids the mindset and habits to build, maintain and prosper your generational wealth.
Kudos Anne-Lyse. This book will definitely be a reference for me in the years to come as I go through money conversations with my Kings and Queens. Thank you.

This book is such a beautiful treat, with so many gems!
Anne-Lyse does an amazing job demystifying and contextualizing what it takes to better manage our finances.
Whether you are someone financially savvy or one who currently faces some challenges managing your finances; this book will either make you smile, guide you, encourage you, or uplift you.
More importantly, this book will give you the strength and tools to not only better manage your finances but to prepare your family to create generational wealth.
I would read it yearly!

Great work of art, this book dives deep into the depths of your mind and magnifies the importance of financial literacy in the Black community and, how we’ve been impacted for centuries from lack thereof. It’s important to know your history and how you form certain habits, the author did an amazing job elaborating on key events that transpired. Also, highlighting how we can transform our poverty mentality into a winning /entrepreneurial mindset that will impact future generations. I loved how the author connected how we judge others and put ourselves in higher regards based on what we own/accomplish. By breaking down parts of experiences and getting into the minds of establishing a sense of self-worth before, attaining assets/placing greater value on material possessions. Overall, this is an outstanding book that covers multiple areas in your life that we all need more education and expertise in.
