There are so many emotions this week, especially with the guilty verdict(s!) in the George Floyd murder trial. We want you to know that we recorded this episode Monday, a day before the verdict was reached. Our hearts go out to Floyd’s family and to all the supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement who fought for justice in Floyd’s name. He will not be forgotten.

There is still much work to be done. Here’s how you can help:

  • Call 202-499-6085 and ask your representatives in Congress to support The George Floyd Justice in Policing Act
  • Register to vote
  • Donate to causes that support social justice and racial equality

We are sending virtual hugs to everyone and hoping you are taking care of yourselves. Here’s a little preview of what we cover on today’s show:

  • Tiff’s newest wisdom from Dr. Greene (5:27)
  • Should you take advantage of your employer’s Employee Stock Purchase Plan? (19:50)
  • And where’s best to park your home downpayment savings (26:35)

Don’t forget you can call/text your questions to: 844-858-8080
