Episode 202: What is Financial Trauma & How Can We Overcome It? | Rahkim Sabree

Rahkim Sabree is an author/columnist, financial coach and host of the “Overcoming Financial Trauma” podcast. He focuses on the intersection of financial education and financial trauma as a barrier to achieving financial empowerment.

Rahkim grew up in Mount Vernon, NY and embodies the idea that you don’t have to succumb to your environment or the limitations of what you know. He often discusses the impact of his early experiences with poverty on his relationship with money and he also likes to dive into the nuances of financial trauma, culture, and race and their impact on the wealth gap in the Black community. 

Rahkim is a strong believer in the power of the mind making reference to the “law of attraction” and the power of intentionality. Among his passions are coaching, financial education, personal development, and entrepreneurship.

Today, Rahkim works with leaders and brands whose mission is to improve people’s lives; who see bigger than themselves and who in addition to wanting to propel their business to the next level, want to (re-) find greater flexibility and freedom using the power of money.

He’s been featured across various publications and media outlets including TED talks, the Tamron Hall Show, Business Insider, Entrepreneur,, CEO World Magazine, The Trio, Parents Magazine, Experian, Bigger Pockets, Black Enterprise, and more.

You can follow Rahkim on Instagram, Twitter, FacebookLinkedIn & YouTube.

  • Growing up in poverty & the cycle of struggle
  • How minorities really struggle with understanding and acknowledging their financial trauma
  • How to overcome your money trauma so that YOU can be the most financially successful

Do you ever feel like no matter how much money you come into you’ll always be scared of the worst-case scenario? Mija, that’s called financial trauma… something you probably had NO idea you were dealing with but we’re here to break it to you.

We know it’s uncomfortable to think about. Let’s add something else to the list of things we POC have to unpack in therapy🙄

But we promise once you can acknowledge it, you can now be aware of it!

This conversation with Rahkim really brought Jannese back to why she started putting together all the knowledge she’s gained on her financial freedom journey. Helping minorities who maybe don’t have the best resources or knowledge gain confidence to go after financial freedom. This all starts with being financially literate and knowing what to do with your money.
