Weekly Roundup

This week, I had financial literacy on the brain. On Monday, I discussed how my son represents the ultimate riddle to me, but how I don’t want money to be a riddle for him. On Wednesday, I talked about my newest client and my plans to make financial planning available to more than just the wealthy. Finally, my podcast this week was with my 8-year-old son, Will. He shared some of his financial journey from nothing to $700 and where he plans to go next. It has been my favorite podcast by far.

Posts I Enjoyed This Week:

  1. Paula from Afford Anything challenged people to accept the 1% challenge.
  2. Erin at Broke Millennial talked about sexism in trading and investing.
  3. Cat at Budget Blonde lamented on being the odd man out sometimes.
  4. Tonya at Budget and the Beach talked about having everything she needs.
  5. Kassandra at More Than Just Money talked about wants and needs.

Thank Yous!!

Thank you to The Heavy Purse and Budget and the Bees for highlighting my posts this week!

This weekend I plan to do some final Christmas preparations and enjoy some time with good friends. I also plan to watch one of my favorite movies of all time that happens to be a holiday movie.

What do you have planned this weekend? Are you ready for the holidays? What’s your favorite holiday movie?
