5 Millennial Articles to Read this Week- Round up #4
It’s the Monday after Thanksgiving if you’re in the U.S.! And some of you probably had off Thursday and Friday, so going back to work today was extra gruesome. Luckily, Simple Minded Millennial is here to give you binge-worthy content to make your Monday morning more bearable.
This roundup keeps getting harder and harder to do with all the fellow millennials out there crushing it. This week, Steph rounded up the articles, podcasts, and blogs she’s had on repeat. Enjoy!
1.) Achieving Intentional And Sustainable Living, by The Frugal Fellow
Here at SMM, we’re trying really hard to treat the Earth better. It’s hard to become more sustainable, especially since being wasteful (and paper plates 😉 ) are so entrenched in our society. Treating the environment with love has become so political, but Bob here shows why it shouldn’t be about politics.

2.) Four Hard Money Lessons That I’m Grateful For, By She Picks up Pennies
Penny shoves an Alanis Morriset GIF in this post, so obviously it’s one of the greatest money posts in history. It is HARD to look back at your money mistakes (or any mistake) and be grateful for it, but Penny makes such a compelling argument on how to appreciate those missteps.
I can relate to every single one of her money lessons, especially all the advice ignored. Like, “You’ll regret getting a new car” and “open up that Roth IRA at 18.” Whoops.
3.) What Am I So Afraid Of? A Reaffirmation To Myself, By Financial Panther
One of the coolest cats in the personal finance space (and the one with the most side hustles) has the most life-changing articles I’ve read in a while. As someone who is always scared to make any life change, this article really hit home. In our recent episode on failure, Erik brought up how we should think “What’s the BEST that can happen” when leaping into the unknown.
Kevin has a similar sentiment: “Instead of looking at all the negatives and all of the contingency plans I need, it’s important to remember one thing that I always forget – the best case scenario could happen. I could succeed in whatever projects or dreams or ideas I have.” Write that down, tattoo it on our arm, live it.
4.) Why Do Bitches Get Riches?: The Power of Unapologetic Confidence and Getting Shit Done, by Bitches Get Riches
No matter if you’re a bitch or bro, this post is jam freaking packed with career advice. Want to feel like you can get a raise, take that corner office, or pull off those leather skirts or pants you bought on sale at ASOS at work? Then you need this article.
5.) Didn’t Achieve Your Financial Goals This Year? Don’t Panic, by Michelle is Money Hungry
Can you guys believe 2018 ends in like, one month!? If you’re anything like Erik, you probably hit all your goals and no one cares. But if you’re like Steph, this post is for you. It is SO easy to get upset about not meeting all your goals in a year, but Michelle makes such a great point here: Your Financial Life is an UltraMarathon.
You may not have hit every financial goal you set, but as long as you’re making progress and bettering yourself, you’re doing awesome!
Hope you love these posts and podcasts by fellow millennials! What were your favorite articles from last week?
