Show Notes

Have you ever seen a person on Social Media and thought, "I would love to have a conversation with them?" Well that is how this podcast came to life.  But, you wouldn't know that from our conversation, that's just how dope Ayesha is. 

Ayesha Selden is a noted financial services executive, economic activist, investor, and art collector. Originally from Philadelphia, and currently based in Los Angeles, she brings a wealth of expertise and experience to her multifaceted endeavors. 

Leveraging her academic background, which includes a BBA in Economics & Marketing and a Certified Financial Planner™ professional designation, Ayesha's expertise and experience have empowered her to educate marginalized communities in the realm of financial management. Her true passion lies in disciplined investing and fostering urban development. Notably, she focuses on investing in real estate within underrepresented areas of Philadelphia, providing quality housing options for low-income communities.

Ayesha's remarkable work has garnered recognition from esteemed media outlets such as CBS, NBC, Entrepreneur Magazine, Nerd Wallet, Black Enterprise, and AfroTech. Her contributions in this space have shed light on the importance of investing in underserved communities.

Furthermore, Ayesha serves on the board of Holy Redeemer Health System's Drueding Center, a transitional housing program in Philadelphia dedicated to supporting young mothers. She actively engages in philanthropy as a patron of visual artists from the African diaspora, demonstrating her commitment to nurturing creative expression. Ayesha's dedication is exemplified through her efforts in collecting, donating, and lending artworks to prestigious institutions like the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C., the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art in Atlanta, and the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art. Ayesha's support for the arts extends to the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, where she actively engages as a dedicated member of the prestigious Hammer Circle.

Listen in as I talk with Ayesha about what it was like in the start of her career, why she decided to invest in her hometown and me awe over her whole art collection.
