Episode 8: Tonight on Margaritas with Marguerita — Coping with Asian Hate Crimes

March 19, 2021: A Note from Marguerita Cheng, CFP® — Welcome to my new radio show, “Diary of a CFP® Pro,” where I’ll be sharing insight into how women will learn how to improve their knowledge of financial matters so they can gain financial security.

This show is a companion to my upcoming book of the same title. I’ll be doing webinars on the last Friday of the month, where I invite you to join me for “Margaritas with Marguerita” on the Inkandescent Radio network. Pour a glass of your favorite beverage, and download the worksheet for this month’s session. In 15 minutes, I’ll share the month’s topic’s details and take any questions that you might have! Scroll down for a preview of what you can expect!

On today’s show: We’d be remiss to not talk about the horrible hate crimes against Asian Americans that are happening around the country. In fact, according to the advocacy group Stop AAPI Hate, there have been nearly 3,800 hate incidents against Asian American and Pacific Islanders between March 19, 2020, and Feb. 28, 2021.

The reason? Many suspect this is because these innocent Americans are being blamed for the coronavirus pandemic. Just this morning, President Joe Biden encouraged Congress to pass the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act.

As a proud and wonderful Asian American who grew up in America, I take this opportunity to talk about my experience and share my thoughts on these dramatic events.

Idea #1: Support the Asian businesses in your area!
