A self-educated serial entrepreneur and licensed attorney, Jaspreet Singh has dedicated his life to spreading financial education.
He is the founder of Minority Mindset and host of the Minority Mindset YouTube channel, which has over a million subscribers. Jaspreet didn’t start with a career in finance, especially not financial education, but his passion for the potential and altruistic goal of Minority Mindset were too strong of a pull.

It’s built around the philosophy that you can gain the financial freedom you are looking for — all it takes is changing your mindset and learning more about how money works.For more information on Jaspreet visit: theminoritymindset.com
