I’ve received a lot of great feedback and comments on my series on How to Talk to Kids about Money. If we can instill good money habits in our children now, we have paved the path for them to make good decisions as adults. I see so many parents try to give their children everything they want but skip this important step. It’s one gift that your child truly needs.
The Heavy Purse received a few mentions last week and as always, I am incredibly grateful for your support. Thanks go out to Frugal Rules, Enemy of Debt, Mom and Dad Money, Carnival of Financial Independence and I’m Every Woman Weekly. If I missed you, please let me know and I will add you to the list.
A Few Good Reads
Here are my favorite posts from the past week, so grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
Brian from Luke 1428 recommended (not really) Shock Treat To Break Your Financial Procrastination. He gave some great examples of the high cost of waiting to invest.
Cat over at Budget Blonde confessed I Do Not Have It All Together. It’s always a relief to admit that we’re not superwomen, although we are very, very close to being one.
My new friend, Leah from Raising Flowers and Skids had a wonderful inspiration post, Lighthouse and Quote of the Week. I loved her thoughts on incorporating a guiding light into our own lives. And her quote comes from her son and it’s quite a doozy.
Grayson from Debt Round-Up had a great guest post at Modest Money on Securing Your WordPress Blog. We may think no hacker would target us but they do, and Grayson shared some great tips to secure your blog.
Erin at Broke Millennial asked us to Define Financial Independence. This is an incredibly important question and one we need to answer before we start working towards achieving our vision of financial independence.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
