Happy Brown Ambition Wednesday!

  • Mandi's got some BIG news...and does the one thing she said she never thought she'd do in New York. 
  • Tiffany's back and recovering well from surgery. 
  • Mandi offers some perspective on the EPIC stock market drop felt 'round the country last week and explains WHY it really happened...and why you might not have so much to worry about. 
  • Today's question comes from Positive Nancy: What's the best way to spend my tax refund — and should I even be getting one?

This episode originally aired in September 2017. Thanks for your support as Tiffany is recovering from surgery (all is well! Just needs a little R&R!). Feel free to shoot her a get well message @theBApodcast or on Facebook on the Brown Ambition page. 

Also, shoutout to the beautiful BA Fan who shouted out Mandi on the train in Jersey today! You guys give us life. Thank you for your love and support.

We're back BA Fam!

On today's show:

Tiffany shares the highs (and hilarious lows) of her family vacation at Universal Studios. 

Is Baby Prom really a thing? And why did a Philadelphia mother spend $25,000 on her son's pre-prom party? We break down the headlines.

Then we take reader "L"s question: Shes' $80,000 in debt and wants to know if bankruptcy is an option. We explain what really happens when you file bankruptcy and when it might be a good idea.
