LOS ANGELES, August 26, 2023, Sean “Diddy” Combs kicked off Invest Fest with an engaging keynote conversation alongside founders Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings. During the fireside chat, Combs announced a significant partnership with Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings from “Earn Your Leisure,” introducing a $1 million fund designed to make investments based on the methodologies discussed on the EYL platform. Combs committed to working closely with Bilal and Millings to demystify the complex world of investing and provide tangible, real-time examples of wealth.


“I am so impressed with Earn Your Leisure’s mission. It’s one of the most disruptive platforms in the fight for economic empowerment and equality. Rashad and Troy are making financial literacy cool for our community,” said Sean “Diddy” Combs. “I’ve given them a challenge to go beyond talking about finances and put that knowledge into action for others to see the process. I’m excited to see how much people learn by watching the strategies be put to use in real time.”


Bilal and Millings will base their strategy on the investment guidance discussed on EYL and will explore investments across a variety of asset classes. Combs also committed that any money made from the fund will go directly to his three Capital Preparatory charter schools in New York and Connecticut. The funds will help to continue to grow the schools and provide invaluable resources to teachers, staff and most importantly, the students.


“Partnering with the legendary Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs to infuse a million dollars into the Earn Your Leisure fund is more than just a collaboration—it’s a seismic shift in generational wealth. This isn’t just about money; it’s about the convergence of vision, hustle, and a commitment to rewriting the rules. We’re not just opening doors; we’re building new doors, new rooms, new floors. So remember, it’s not just a million dollars; it’s a million dreams, a million futures, and a million reasons why you should never stop betting on yourself. The revolution of financial empowerment is here, and we’re the architects,” said Rashad Bilal.


“Teaming up with the icon himself, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, to pour a million dollars into the heart of the Earn Your Leisure fund is nothing short of monumental. This partnership isn’t just about capital, it’s about a shared mission to light up pathways to prosperity. Picture this: a million-dollar torch igniting opportunities, sparking innovation, and dispelling the darkness of financial misinformation. Our collaboration with Diddy isn’t solely an investment—it’s an affirmation that the world is waking up to the importance of economic education,” said Troy Millings.


This partnership between Combs and Earn Your Leisure is unique because it will give an audience that has traditionally lacked access to financial education an inside look at how investment decisions are made. The initiative has already garnered attention from business leaders and investors alike, and promises to be a powerful example of how individuals can make a difference in their communities.


This new fund furthers the relationship between Combs Global and Earn Your Leisure.  Comb’s Revolt Media & TV closed a deal three years ago to showcase “Assets Over Liabilities,” a show hosted by Bilal and Millings, exclusively on Revolt’s platform. In addition, Bilal and Millings have their “Earn Your Leisure” network, which includes the Market Monday’s show, and gives rise to emerging and established content creators from the world of business, finance and entrepreneurship whose perspective, expertise and in-depth insight have been undervalued and overlooked.
