Here is a list of some of the Awesome Articles that I came across in the month of June.
Melissa at Mom’s Plans writes an amazing article on Financial Planning For Expectant Mommies. She covers a lot of important information that every new parent needs to know.
Jonathon at My Money Blog wrote an Article: Early Retirement Lesson #2, which gives a decent metric for deciding where your focus should be, on reducing expenses or increasing income.
Steve at the Penny Hoarder wrote How to Earn Thousands of Dollars: $5 at a time; A guide for using Fiverr. In addition to providing an analysis of how to be successful with Fiverr, Steve also talks about other online marketplaces that are similar to Fiverr.
Lazy Man at Lazy Man and Money posted an article on a new look at rental units; Accessory Dwelling Units: A Great Alternative Money Path. I don’t think I would want my tenants to literally live in my back yard, but this could be an excellent solution for a mother in law addition.
Stefanie at Prairie Eco-Thrifter gives a look into her side hustle, which she describes as: The Value of Standing There and Looking Pretty. I’m sure Stefanie is a excellent at “standing there and looking pretty”, but I still think she provided a lot more value to her clients than just being a pretty face. I do understand her frustration though that she is getting paid a lot to do a relatively simple task and is capable of offering a lot more to her employers, when compensation for more difficult and skilled jobs that she is more than capable of seem to pay less. Stefanie is a staff writer for Prairie Eco-Thrifter, and also has her own blog The Broke and Beautiful Life.
Okay, so this one was from May, but I just came across it. Matt at The Military Wallet wrote a detailed and informative article entitled Enlistment and Re-Enlistment Bonus Guide. This article has a ton of useful information for current and future soldiers.
Jennifer at Jen Spends wrote about her life journey looking back over 10 years and where she is headed today in her Article Greetings From Base Camp.
