Video: Interview with Pawn Shop Owner turned Politico

Taking a break from commenting on Wall Street, the Dow’s highs and personal finance topics, I recorded a show yesterday with San Antonio, TX-based smart commentary site, Plaza de Armas.

A friend and fellow small finance business owner Shirley Gonzales announced her candidacy for San Antonio City Council, District 5.  Shirley had previously introduced me to her Pawn Shop on a podcast, and explained the frustrations of trying to make something nice in her neighborhood.
