This Week on Historically-Black Friday – To Protect and SAVE

It’s TAX Season, and according to Rich

If money could talk, it would say “Goodbye.” -Pryor

Richard Pryor

For many people that would be the case, but the topic this week is “to protect and SAVE,” …our money that is.

To that end lets talk about a few HBCU-alumni who are in the business of helping your money NOT fly away, but instead, hang around, grow, and be there when you want it.

First of all let’s get taxes out of the way and planned for in advance.

L&B Tax Service

Brian Joubert
Brian Joubert, alum of Southern University, owns L&B Tax Service and has been in business going on 20 years shortly. Don’t fall for the gimmicks you hear on the commercials. Spinning rims, and money giveaways don’t equate to high quality, knowledgable service.

Once that’s taken care of, it’s time to plan FORWARD. Put that money to work. Save for college, plan for retirement, even budget for family vacations. Whatever it is you’re working to accomplish consider getting professional advice:

Destiny Financial Group

Troy Young
Troy Young, Howard University alum, has over 20 years experience in the financial services industry. A significant portion of that time was with two of the nations largest financial service companies. For the past 4 years he has been in private practice as an independent financial advisor. Troy’s community activities include serving as Elder at his church, membership in Omega Psi Phi Fraternity and Board Member of Starlight Children’s Foundation.

Lasting Legacy Wealth Management

Dana Branham
Dana Branham, also an alum of Howard University has been a financial advisor since 2006. She began her career in the brokerage industry with AXA Advisors and Edward Jones, but spent most of her previous career with Lexmark International, a global technology company. Dana is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated and a trustee at her church. She is also the founder and adviser to God’s Girls, a faith-based enrichment program for teen girls.

(And for some odd reason I created this photo of Mike Tyson flipping his pigeons, using the flying money Emoji to replace the pigeons… It was late at night. Don’t judge me.)

Have a wonderful week! For those of you enjoying the CIAA tournament, travel safe!

As always, if you know of a business owned by an HBCU alum, help us promote them by encouraging them to submitting their listing on HistoricallyBlackFriday.com.

This week on Historically Black Friday – The Yin and the Yang

This week on Historically-Black Friday we ordered and received our order of pecan pralines, from Rose Mary’s Pralines.

The Yin.

Rose Mary's Pralines

I’m not a huge candy guy. I think the only time I’ve ever had pralines was in ice cream. But with Valentine’s Day approaching and having read the history of the recipe and seeing the beautiful photos I had to give them a try. The first word that comes to mind is decadent. They’re on the luxury end of the candy spectrum according to taste, and are absolutely made to be shared.

Showcase YOUR HBCU Alumni-Owned Business – Historically Black Friday

Do you know excellent HBCU Alumni business owners?

We’ve seen first hand, the power of uniting and approaching change through our economic power.

This holiday season, Alumni Roundup is supporting alumni-owned businesses, with the hope of creating more opportunities for our dollars to circulate in our community.

Introducing Historically Black Friday Once a week we’re sending our membership of thousands of alumni a summary of businesses owned by members of our community.

We’ve created an opportunity for those excellent service providers and vendors among us to reach a receptive audience of supportive alumni.

Direct to Alumni.

We hope that the Doctors, Lawyers, Dentists, Restauranteurs, and vendors among us will find this more than helpful. And we hope our membership finds the opportunity to fulfill more of their holiday shopping from within our ranks.

Sincerely, -Be Moore Founder, Alumni Roundup
