Memphis – More Than Elvis And BBQ

Memphis has a long and rich musical history – from blues to jazz, to soul music and of course the “Birthplace of Rock n’ Roll” with hometown son Elvis Presley leading a revolution that changed our world forever. Elvis was the original punk-rocker and cemented the music legacy of Memphis. Barbeque is also king in Memphis being dubbed the “Barbequed Pork Capital of the World.” When you look at Memphis and dig a little deeper, there is so much more to this Southern gem of a city than barbecue and Elvis.

Memphis has more to offer than Elvis & BBQ. Find out some of the things you need to check out when you visit.

 

Music and history are the heart and soul of Memphis. Today, Memphis has transformed into a hotbed for young millennials who are flocking to this ever-changing community of hipster neighborhoods, a thriving food culture and one of the hottest indie-rock, hip-hop and rap music scenes in the country.

On This Podcast Episode:

We got the lowdown on all things Memphis with writer/blogger who runs the very popular “I Love Memphis” blog, Holly Whitfield and then chatted with native Memphian and musician Will Tucker about the Memphis vibes.

My co-host for the podcast is my husband, Jeff Game, a travel, and music journalist that’s always on the hunt for a good story to tell.

Plan Your Future Today With The Tomorrow App

It’s always easy to think about the good parts of your future – getting a new job, moving to a new city, getting married, starting a family, etc. It’s the not so good parts of life that we definitely don’t want to think about often – things like needing a will and a trust.

If you've got stuff you need a will and Tomorrow is a great app that will allow you to create one for free.

Why would you need a will in your 20’s or 30’s? Well, that’s a good question. To answer it, I ask you a question. Do you have stuff? If you answered yes, then you need at the bare minimum a will.

That’s where the Tomorrow App comes in. You can get a will and a trust…for free. Yes, for free. ( FYI -I’m not being paid by Tomorrow, but am a fan of a company making a service that is so important accessible to everyone.)

On This Podcast Episode:

  • I chat with Dave, CEO of Tomorrow, about all the amazing features of this app
  • Learn why Dave thinks a will and a trust are important as millennials
  • Find out how you can get your will and trust taken care of for free
  • I’m sharing some of my own tips about these important documents and why now is a great time to start planning your future
