The Conversation: Tapping into Your Financial Power...No Matter How Much You Have 


Money is one of the most essential things we need to survive, but is one of the things most of us know so little about. 


Most of us don’t know what’s in our 401(k), yet it’s OUR 401(k). 


Many of us believe the stock market is only for certain folks, yet place our bets on winning a lotto ticket. 


Many of us look our paycheck, and lose it before we can even think of a “budget” 


On top of this, the majority of us believe that we don’t have options to grow our money. 


Kevon L. Chisolm and his teenage son Kevon Kamari Chisolm, Jr. aka “Junior Wallstreeter” will share with you why we need to tap into the full power of financial literacy. We don’t just mean budgeting and saving.  


We’re talking about giving your money options to grow: 401(k)s, stocks, and more. 


Tune in if you are ready to learn how to start maximizing your money, no matter where you are in your financial journey.
