Taking Care of Business: Establishing a Financial Legacy for the African American Family by Lee Jenkins

Despite trillions of dollars spent and the development of welfare programs, poverty has actually gotten much worse. Nationally, 30% of black families live below the poverty line, an increase of 20% since 1969. Lee Jenkins knows that poverty is not corrected by a redistribution of wealth, but by the transformation of people. In his new book, he offers readers comprehensive strategies for setting goals in the areas of family, faith, friends, finances, and fitness.

Lee Jenkin's book Taking Care of Business breaks away from the pack.  Finally a book that takes a biblical approach to building generational wealth from the perspective of the African-American experience.  I highly recommend it.

Three cheers!  Lee Jenkins accomplishes something important and rare for a book of this sort.  He weds solid Christian teaching to financial practices and places fascinating dialogue within the context of African American history and culture.  With the voice and heart of a master teacher, he clearly sets forth the ABC's of financial literacy.

Taking Care of Business is the financial answer to keeping our families strong.  Lee Jenkins has produced a practical guide, using Christian principles that will help families become financially savvy.
-Judge Glenda Hatchett, The Judge Hatchett Show

Taking Care of Business is long overdue.  It is one of the most relevant and challenging books I have read recently.  In this book, Lee covers the ABC's of finances and business in general.  There is no doubt that this best-seller will better the livesof individuals, families, churches and communities.  Lee's personal integrity, vision, and passion position him to speak with authority.
-Dr. Samuel R. Chand, President, Beulah Heights Bible College, Atlanta, GA

Lee Jenkins is uniquely qualified to be heard.  I believe he is undoubtedly the right man for this kind of project.  In his new book Taking Care of Business Lee draws from his abundant wisdom as a stellar financial advisor and his extensive ministry experience.  I highly recommend this book.
-Howard Dayton, Co-CEO Crown Financial Ministries

Every decade a great stewardship book is called forward from an insightful leader . . . a leader who knows the financial pulse of the issues of the day for families, the church, and parachurch ministries.  For such a time as this, this is that book and Jenkins is that leader.  Buy a copy for anyone you consider dear in your life.
-Scott Preissler, M.Ed., M.A., President, Christian Stewardship Association
