Buffie Purselle is a tour-de-force. She started her own business at 19. She’s been featured on not ONE but TWO reality television shows. She’s helped hundreds of budding entrepreneurs begin businesses. So to celebrate Juneteenth we’re helping empower YOU with the woman who believes that you have to “crawl before you ball.” She’ll share stories from her own upbringing and early jobs that you can learn from to fast track your own success. She also shares the dark moment when she realized things were headed in the wrong direction, and she needed to change her ways if she wanted to be successful.
That’s not even CLOSE to all of our topics, though. In our headline segment, we discuss some of the scandal behind meme stock trading: selling order flow. Wheels have been in motion since the meme stock craze began (remember Gamestop and AMC Theater stock?). Right now the SEC is trying to make some changes, and we’ll share what it’s all about. We’ll also throw out the Haven Life line to Melissa who wants to find a fee-free HSA account. Why pay fees when there are great accounts out there with zero maintenance fees? We share how to find those free accounts. And we’ll leave time for Doug’s trivia AND our fairly gross TikTok Minute. Just another Federal holiday in Joe’s mom’s basement.
