In 2016, born out of his charitable organization, Financially CLEAN, host Shaun Lynda, had an idea to create a podcast to extend his message of financial literacy beyond classroom.

TWO BLACK GUYS WITH GOOD CREDIT is a show about two guys from Canada living in the US for over 20 years (Arlington Forbes in Los Angeles and Shaun Lynda in Brooklyn). Both are business owners with successful track records and, of course, good credit! Each week they will bring you their ‘straight talk’ and at times humorous perspective on making, managing, and protecting your money.

While Shaun and Arlington go back and forth, co-host, Dionne Nicholls, keeps everyone on point as the Lady with the Facts. Dionne brings the numerical and historical perspective to the topics at hand. Whether it be about the history of bitcoin or how credit card reward points date back to the 19th century, Dionne, a former fashion executive turned social entrepreneur makes sure that we know our past so we can properly contextualize our present.

Financially CLEAN Teaching Personal Branding 101, the 'A" in CLEAN Stands for 'Attention to Detail'

Dionne Nicholls, Program Director, former fashion executive turned social entrepreneur, was able to check off another milestone on Financially CLEAN's journey.  Last week, Dionne taught the 'Attention to Detail' the 'A' in the five pillars of CLEAN to students and their parents side by side at Chionesu Bakari's Young Men's Program. Chionesu Bakari takes young men out of their comfort zone and opens up their world perspectives, guiding their development to the leaders they were born to be.   Over 300 kids served to date.

Financially CLEAN is more than just a financial literacy program, it has a self-development component as well.  The soft skills that colleges and companies are looking for in potential students and employees or if you decide to strike out on your own are just as important and need to be taught in the classroom. With the advent of social media, to be competitive on must curate a personal brand online as well as offline to have a competitive edge.

Parents and kids had fun learning Personal Branding 101 and engaging in a Networking Role Play exercise.

Every child that downloaded our free e-book on Friday received a Financially CLEAN arm band to remind them to pay their bills on time. 

Assemblyman Walter Mosley took the time to visit with us and see how the magic happens and how we are trying to share financial literacy one e-book and child at a time.  And we had to take one State Office Selfie!!

Financially CLEAN Launches Free E-Book, The College Financial Playbook

Financially CLEAN will officially debut The College Financial Playbook, the first of its series of free E-books, at Walter Mosley's 5th Annual Youth Career Fair on Friday January 26th at the Shirley A. Chisolm State Office Building in Brooklyn, NY.

With student loan debt being the largest form of consumer debt outside of mortgages in this country, Financially CLEAN is launching this free E-book to help change that.



We are always looking for creative ways to reach youth beyond the classroom, beyond our borders. Our goal is to advance the opportunity for every child to be financially literate before the age of 18.
