Known for being one of the most celebrated Black executives who inspired the largest black-owned wholesale insurance brokerage throughout the United States, De’Andre Salter has made a significant name for himself not only in the insurance arena but also in the finance industry. Today, the established entrepreneur is on a mission to pursue economic empowerment for people of color through his latest book, The Culture of Money.
De’Andre Salter is a serial entrepreneur, certified financial expert, motivational speaker, and a rising author. He was a senior-level executive for 3 fortune 500 companies, inspiring the largest Black-owned wholesale insurance brokerage in America. On top of being a renowned entrepreneur, his influence also stems from his strong faith and relentless service to the church.
At only 21 years old, he learned the fundamentals of wealth-building and money-making. “I grew up in an area where most people I knew were the prototype for financial instability. It was a terrible setback and grace caused me to commit to breaking the cycle,” explains De’Andre Salter. The rising financial visionary obtained his degree from Drew University in only three years. Upon completion, he immediately joined the insurance industry and quickly took enormous strides, which led to professional success. He also holds a Master’s Degree in Theology from The King’s Seminary and is currently working on his Doctorate of Ministry. He was consecrated as Bishop of Administration of the Macedonia International Bible Fellowship, an association home to pastors from African and American ministries. At present, he serves as a pastor of Impact Church in New Jersey.
Today, he is most thrilled to finally launch a masterpiece fueled by his financial expertise and lifelong advocacies. His book, The Culture of Money, unlocks effective strategies for economic empowerment through sustainable wealth for people of color. In this publication, De’Andre Salter explores what he deems as one of the biggest civil rights issues today – the glaring racial wealth gap. As an author, he envisioned building a black wealth movement through community-shared values of knowing more, owning more, and passing down more to the next generation. Moreover, his powerful book highlights how black churches, organizations, and families play a significant role in attaining financial recovery and overall success.
Unlike most books tackling finances for people of color, The Culture of Money steers away from the typical financial advice that often urges readers to use emergency savings as the first step to attaining financial independence. Instead, this book dives deeper into identifying the crucial negative financial behaviors that may be holding back people from building sustainable wealth. De’Andre Salter then guides the readers into changing these behaviors into more fruitful endeavors.
Essentially, The Culture of Money serves as a wake-up call for readers. De’Andre Salter helps people understand how money has affected their past and how it serves as a driving force in their lives today. The book is a sophisticated blend of financial psychology and biblical wisdom, revealing the importance of mindset and community wealth-building. Overall, it provides a curriculum, measurement, and tools needed for readers to get involved in the black wealth-building movement.
Through his book, De’Andre Salter provides a life-changing awakening for Black Americans and other people of color who are determined to shift the financial narrative of their culture, family, and community towards a more positive light.
