Jini Thornton, a Cool Soror of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. joins the show today. The Founder & CEO of Envision Business Management and author of “99 Tips To Never Go Broke” is a financial guru. Landing an opportunity called “Money Talks” on HOT 97.5 (now HOT 107.9 in Atlanta) in 1996, Jini found her true calling.
At the time, she was working at one of the top accounting firms in the country as a CPA. She had a strong desire to create a life that would allow her to be available for her family. A popular radio personality told Jini that he was going to be a rapper. That popular radio personality was multi-talented artist Ludacris. Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges became her first client and Envision Business Management was born.
Jini gained her entrepreneurial spirit from her grandfather and other family members who had their own businesses. She goes in depth about a profound recollection that sparked her financial affinity. Since the age of 12, she had a passion for being in control of her financial freedom.
Jini’s passion for finance has afforded her the opportunity to be featured on The Willie Moore, Jr. Show which can be heard in 26 markets every week for “Money Monday.” In addition, she is able to educate people about finance through her new book, “99 Tips to Never Go Broke” and #neverbrokenation videos.
It is her mission to help as many people as she can to change their attitudes toward money. She is doing just that, one cent at a time.
