  1. The easiest way to build wealth is to decrease the amount of money going out of your home and redirect it toward debt reduction and financial investments.
  2. Financial literacy is one of the most powerful tools to pull individual people, families and entire communities out of poverty.
  3. Aside from being Black-Owned, myEcon separates itself from other network marketing companies by helping its members build wealth in a multitude of ways beyond simply recruiting and selling products.
