Why You Need a Will, Trust, and Power of Attorney - ASAP!
Ep. #82 - This is a topic that has become near and dear to my heart because it's something I'm currently in the process of doing. Many people in the Black community have lost MILLIONS because we were never taught about wills, probate, trusts, power of attorney, etc.  The lack of this knowledge is why gentrification is happening in Black neighborhoods all over the United States. Well, I want to help us know better so we can do better. And please...please pass this information on to your loved ones, especially your children! We Discuss: What's the difference between a will and a trust? What is probate? How can it be avoided? How do I find an attorney? What should I look for? How much does it cost to do a will or a trust? Are online wills okay? Legal? And much more! In this episode, I am having a conversation with Attorney David Harty, who specializes in Estate Planning.  He has been practicing law for more than 40 years. He served as a judge for several years and quite frankly, he knows his stuff! For the last 20-plus years, he has focused on estate planning and we're fortunate to have him still serving; especially "our" community.   If you want to contact Mr. Harty, his email is hartylaw.dh@gmail.com My Exit Plan - The Workbook was written by Rhonda D.

Reparations For Black Americans Will Happen! Here's How...
Ep. #58 - Marcel Dixon joins us to share why he's challenging James Clyburn for his seat in South Carolina in the 6th district. He's running on a reparations platform, and wants protected status for Black Americans, land allotments etc. Mr. Clyburn’s term ends on Jan. 3, 2023, however he is running for re-election. Marcel has always been known for being bold when it comes to speaking against structural injustices and impatient when it comes to implementing solutions to solve problems that persisted for too long.  He believes we deserve better, and you deserve to have someone you know will truly fight and speak up for you. He promises, if we help send him to DC, he’ll do just that.

WANTED!! Black Men On A Mission
#57 - There is a need for more Black men to be involved in education as teachers, mentors and volunteers. It’s not enough just to be Black and a man, you must also have the heart, intelligence and integrity to impact lives. I’m proud to say I’ve connected with a man who works with Black men who are doing exactly that. They possess all of the above traits and are impacting lives daily. Any community is a mixture of families, businesses, and interconnected networks, but strong communities begin with the presence of strong families. As men are protectors of their homes and families, they are also protectors of the community. Get connected with support & resources to assist you with your teaching, mentoring, volunteering and even your fatherhood journey.
