"Asians love to talk about money" - Alex C.

Yellow Asian Cloud Icon

The common refrain is that Americans don't talk about money enough in our families, at work, or amongst our friends. The reality is, different for Asians though. Asians talk about money all the time.


Whether it's haggling in Chinatown, giving red evelopes for Lunar New Year, or prioritizing that college education so you can get a well paying job with a stable income, the Asian American story is written around money and how to keep it.

Although this podcast isn't specifically about money, how to become financially independent, or even how to build a business, you can bet that money will come up in conversation.


Instead, you'll hear from a variety of business owners about their businesses, their upbringings, and how it all plays a part in building their abundant life.
