I was contacted by Kari Paul for my opinion on a new study from the GenForward project at the University of Chicago showing black and Latino non-white Millennials are especially susceptible to economic vulnerability and were less optimistic about the future of the “American Dream” than their peers. You can check out mine and others thoughts on the subject on MarketWatch.com at Why black and Latino millennials are struggling more than their white peers.
We met NerdWallet personal finance expert and writer, Amrita Jayakumar, at FinCon16. Proving the theory “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know” we were fortunate that she thought of us again in 2017 when she was putting together an article on personal finance gurus for an upcoming piece. While both Rich and I continue to debate who is the ‘guru’ half of the show, we were happy to be considered with so many other great and talented individuals.
