Weekly Roundup – Taking Chances
This week I celebrated one year of being a soloepreneur and shared my story of taking chances in my career. On Wednesday, I shared mine and my son’s review of Lemonade Stand by my friend Shannon Ryan. Shannon took a chance and wrote this book, and her efforts paid off because it’s a great lesson in money for parents and kids. In honor of Shannon’s book, on Friday I shared my top ten summer activities with kids and one of them is to start a lemonade stand. 🙂 Finally, I had my last planned post shared on Young Adult Money. I have loved writing for DC’s blog, and some of what he allowed me to write over there helped me get my AOL Job, so I really appreciate him and his support.
Reads I Enjoyed This Week
- Alicia at Evolving Personal Finance shared her challenge of choosing healthcare. She highlights the complexities and struggles most of us have with figuring out healthcare in the US.
- Grayson wrote for Frugal Rules asking if you could complain when something is free. I think it’s a great question to ask, but more than that, his story of working the booth during a trade show reminded me of the days I did that as well and it is amazing how many people complained over the free stuff you were giving them.
- Tonya at Budget and the Beach shared 5 things freelancers can do while waiting for more work. As someone who usually spends downtime stressed about when busy time will happen again, I thought this was a great list.
- Stefanie at The Broke and Beautiful Life share some blogging lessons learned and also that she is available for new blogger help.
- KK at Student Debt Survivor shared some great tips for weathering a financial storm.
I have a pretty low key weekend planned because FB Hubby is currently in Iceland for a class trip. My biggest issue is that I finished the second season of Orange is the New Black and I don’t know what to watch next. I know, #firstworldproblems
