What’s in your wallet, Kelly Raver?

Kelly Raver: My name is Kelly Raver. We are at Charlemagne Records in Five Point South in Birmingham, Ala. This is my wallet. It’s huge, it is a piece of small luggage. I have my ID, gift cards, cash. This is a coin that I got for being in recovery, so I hold onto this as well, to remind me where I came from. I guess it’s just sentimental, because it takes me back to a hard time in my life that I emerged from. It has the serenity prayer on one side and on the other side, it says “To thine oneself be true.”

And in my change purse, I have a fortune from a fortune cookie that I’ve had for about eight months. It says, “There are big changes ahead for you.” So I’m holding onto that, holding out for the changes.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
