About Ike Ikokwu

IKE IKOKWU, “The Financial Independence Coach,” is a Purpose-Driven Wealth Coach. Entrepreneurs and Working Professionals hire Ike to shorten their financial independence timelines from 30 years down to 2 to 5 years. He’s a CPA, and Insurance Professional who’s previously held professional licenses as a Certified
Financial Planner (CFP) and Registered Investment Adviser (RIA). He holds a bachelor’s in accounting and a master’s in personal financial planning.
While working for “Big 6” tax firms and buying real estate, Ikokwu funneled his profits into domestic and international investments, only to realize too late that they were Ponzi schemes. Forced to declare personal bankruptcy in 2003, he rebuilt his wealth and became financially independent at the age of 34 in 2008 by changing his approach to finances. He outlines his corrective measures in his book “Winning The Money Game.”


After 2 business betrayals in 2014 cost him over 7-figures, the loss of two professional licenses as well as his Registered Investment Advisory Business and put him on the verge of bankruptcy in 2019, Ike staged a remarkable business and financial comeback as he realized that it’s only at the intersection of purpose, passion, and passive wealth creation that we get to play on a much bigger stage of life than we are currently on. So, he’s helping his clients do that with resources like his new book, The Manifest Wealth Safely Method and his Manifest Wealth Safely Program.

Today, he’s the Founder of The Righteous Billionaire Movement whose vision is to create 10,000 Righteous Billionaires as he helps clients add at least $1,000,000 in new wealth and $100,000 in passive income in 2 to 5 years so they can live life by design and not by default as they pursue purpose-driven passion projects they love that can change the world, much like Ike is doing with his Righteous Billionaire Movement. Ike is married with 3 kids, and they reside in Cumming, GA.
