Eric McLoyd Profile Photo

Eric McLoyd

Peace, my name is Eric McLoyd. I am the creator and co-host of the Money Sex Gen X podcast. I consider myself to be a proud black, Gen X’er, and want to see more accurate portrayals of myself in the media.

Yes, I hold a bunch of degrees and certifications but I still feel that my greatest education came from navigating un-controlled environments + from starting companies from scratch. I took those insights and started helping others to build wealth through their own start-ups.

I have lived in many different parts of the United States. To this day I am constantly refreshing my experiences. Some of my favorite places to play are Tokyo, Belize, Amsterdam, Paris, New York City, and the DMV.

I am also an aspiring author and understand that constantly creating is the key to my happiness + success in life.

Most importantly, I have found the love of my life, have two beautiful children + am a Ralph Lauren fanatic (love to rock Lo).

Stew is very optimistic and opinionated, always needing to add his two-cents to the conversation which actually brings a bit of sauce to the lively conversations. Stew tends to be pretty open-minded, always open to hearing new perspectives, particularly about subject matter unfamiliar to him.

Stew is a staunch supporter of Black-owned and operated businesses and preserving Black culture.
