Economic Empowerment à la Michelle Singletary

On Saturday, we were excited to join Yvette Lewis and Grow the Hope at the Millenium Bible Fellowship Church for an event on economic empowerment. Last time we joined them, it was quite a powerful event, so we came with high expectations. As usual, Yvette did not disappoint. We will have plenty of coverage of Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and the various workshops to help folks with resume writing and basic financial counseling. Today though, we are just releasing our interview with Michelle Singletary and her speech.

Mrs. Singletary gave an impassioned speech about individual fiscal responsibility, stuffed with plenty of comedy and personal stories. And there was plenty of tough love to go around. In this economy, it is more important than ever to hear the truth about money, regardless of how hard it may be to hear.

We got a chance to chat with her for a few minutes after the event and got a little advice for folks that are thinking about trying the Financial Fast she details in her book, The Power to Prosper: 21 Days to Financial Freedom. We send a big thanks to Mrs. Singletary for sparing some time for us:

(I'll be getting a copy of her book and trying out the financial fast, I'll share with you all some of results of that along the way)
