Check out what we’ve got under construction – a new site with a feed of women’s personal finance blogs! – It’s a work in progress but we’d love to know what you think so far.
Winning Women Who Money
We’re kicking off this week’s winning women with Bola Sokunbi, the founder of Clever Girl Finance! Even though Financial Literacy Month is over, it’s not time to quit educating our kids about money. Check out her awesome podcast and Episode 77 where she talks with Regina Byrd about Raising Your Children to Be Financially Successful Grownups.
The attorney behind the new blog Champagne and Capital Gains wrote an important post about taking care of her mental health. “If you face mental health issues, leaving them untreated is an irresponsible way to tackle your financial goals and will probably derail you at some point.” If you’ve ever put off taking care of yourself to save money, give this post a read.
Britt from Tiny Ambitions is simplifying her life to go tiny! She may be minimizing her possessions and purchases, but she’s also minimizing time on social media. And this is in addition to not having cable or Satellite TV. You might be surprised to see the data in her recent post, Everything That Was Advertised to Me in 24 Hours. We won’t give any more away!
Misty Lynch, the author of the blog Not Another Thing wrote a wonderful post called 5 Better Ways To Help a Friend in Need. Misty not only has terrific and thoughtful suggestions, she reminds us that you may need to be direct and not ask “what do you need” to someone who is overwhelmed. Check out her post for ideas about what you can do instead!
Mistakes I Made in My Career is an excellent post by Sarah from Couple of Sense. After working at her company for ten years, she shares seven important mistakes and the “moral of the story” that goes with each one. We’ve been guilty of some of these mistakes too. Take a look so that you don’t make the same ones!
And finally this week, we are closing out with another plug to keep financial literacy in focus all year long! Jessica Wagner, CPA, CMA and also from Don’t Stop Publishing. Jessica just released her first book in the “Family Who Reads Together Stays Together” series: Kevin, the Money Master. Kevin makes learning about personal finance fun for kids!
Jessica is passionate about money management and telling stories. Her book came about after a conversation with her son, who is also a twin. She’s found great joy bringing this book to life! She hopes parents, grandparents, uncles, and aunts will read it many times to the important children in their lives so they will learn money-management skills early enough to reap the rewards! Congratulations on publishing your book, Jessica! You can check out the Kevin, The Money Master Blog too!
