Web radio: Financial advice for families and the formerly incarcerated

On Monday, June 1 at 9 p.m., Makeba and I will be hosting a very special show.  We will be speaking to Mark S. La Spisa, financial advisor, President and co-founder of Vermillion Financial Advisors Inc. (VFA).  We’ll be asking La Spisa to share his financial expertise and answer the questions that matter to you most, including:

  • * Financial advice for families with at least one incarcerated family member
  • * Money saving tips for families with at least one incarcerated family member
  • * Financial planning for families with an incarcerated family member
  • * Financial tips for recently released individuals
  • * Money saving tips for recently released individuals

Though La Spisa normally advises clients with wealth in excess of $1 million, he has personal experience with advising his own family.  After La Spisa’s cousin was locked up and sentenced to 10 years in prison for cocaine possession, his mother (La Spisa’s aunt) was left with no income.  Forced to deal with the reality of starting over financial, La Spisa gave her financial advice and assisted her with finding public assistance and community programs aimed at assiting low-income families.
