An African American from humble beginnings, Nash is a firm believer and living example that anyone – regardless of age, race, income, or starting point – can build wealth if they have a burning desire, unshakable faith, grit, a willingness to make the necessary sacrifices, the courage to step out on faith, and the ability to patiently and consistently execute his wealth building process over time. Since completing his undergraduate work in the early nineties, Nash has been obsessed with the challenges and mysteries of building wealth. Shortly before graduating from Cal Poly, Nash created a plan to become a millionaire and a mere seven years later he achieved Destination MIllionaire. Nash has continued to grow his wealth over the past 30 years despite the many roadblocks and setbacks that life put in his path.
Nash’s approach is to show people how to use age-old principles to build wealth and create sustainable income for life by saving and investing in stocks and bonds, real estate, entrepreneurship, and private equity. Nash’s Millionaire Money Moves framework is not a “get rich quick” scheme; instead it is a proven “get rich over time” strategy.
"Initially meeting Cedric I thought it was like any other barbershop customer. But actually getting to know him and listening to him has completely changed my outlook on my perspective financially. We’ve had very detailed conversations about building wealth and being much more responsible with money. From flipping houses to buying apartments and commercial properties for longer term holds, he has been there to give sound advice. He has looked over some of the properties and has even invested his own money through lending or partnering. Having a Cedric being a phone call away to be able to thoroughly evaluate a deal is priceless because he’s never going to tell you want you want to hear. He’s going to carefully evaluate, ask the important questions and then allow you to do what you want."
