Brunch & Budget
THE PODCAST ABOUT PERSONAL FINANCE & RACIAL ECONOMIC INCLUSION: From how we bank, to how our credit scores are calculated, to how we are kept in the dark about investing, to how we pay our taxes, the system is set up for us to get caught in a debt/poverty cycle and stay running just to tread water. The rules change all the time so the people on top stay on top. What if you not only knew the rules, but knew exactly how to apply it to your own financial situation? What if you were able to not only reverse your financial mistakes, but start making the rules work for you? If you're ready to See Change, tune in!
