ONLY ON 13: Successful Saratoga Springs business owner asks 1% to give up some wealth
“White and Wealthy” is a book that has people talking, and it is frank. It addresses an audience some people have disdain for – the 1%, the super wealthy.
The book is written by Ed Mitzen, who owns Fingerpaint Marketing in Saratoga Springs. Is one of many businesses he’s started, which have brought in a combined billions of dollars.
The book asks the 1% to do something they may find offensive – give up some of their wealth. Mitzen is putting out this challenge because a few years ago, he realized he should give up some of his.
Mitzen grew up in Voorheesville, went to college, and started his first business at age 30. Now his healthcare marketing agency, Fingerpaint, is bringing in millions of dollars.
For the past three years, Mitzen, has been getting an education on the history behind the economic state of Black America.
However, Mitzen has not always been as informed as he is today.
