5 Millennial Articles to Read this Week- Round up #9
One month down, eleven to go. Maybe you are recovering from your Super Bowl Party hangover, or maybe you are super motivated and ready to crush the month of February! Maybe both!
Each week, we do this round-up to feature awesome people doing awesome things and sharing their story on their blogs and websites. Last week, Steph featured some amazing posts, which you can check out here. Up this week is Erik.
Erik is ALL about the money, and included a few money posts in this round-up. Here are some of Erik’s favorite posts from the past week:
1.) An Exploration of Financial Independence Through Hip-Hop/R&B Lyrics by Peerless Money Mentor
One of my favorite blogs and people is Jerry from Peerless Money Mentor. I love his unique take on different topics and this is another great post from Jerry.
Making music, becoming good at a skill, and growing your wealth all have multiple things in common. It’s important to be disciplined, to be intentional, and to live with an abundance mindset!
2.) Automate Your Savings by Keeping Up With The Bulls
Automation in personal finance can be incredibly valuable and beneficial to meeting your savings, debt payoff and investing goals.
Keeping Up With The Bulls talks about one of my best ways to get ahead financially: PAY YOURSELF FIRST.
If you are paying yourself last, there probably won’t be a lot to go around at the end of the month. Be proactive and get saving with automation!
3.) How to Flip a House for Profit When You Live in It by Melissa Blevins
I currently own my house and I’m constantly thinking about updates I should be making, but also try to assess if these updates would be worth it if I ever go to sell.
Melissa writes about the things you need to think about when putting money into your house, and if these improvements could lead to a quick cash-out in a few years.
4.) Avoid the Hyper-Consumer Spiral of Death by Money Stir
What do you value in life? What makes you happiest? How can you align your spending habits with what you value and what makes you happiest?
On Earth, we have limited time, energy and money. If you aren’t spending your time and money on things you enjoy doing, what are you doing with your life?
What about when you add debt to the mix? All of a sudden you could have a huge problem on your hands.
Avoid the hyper-consumer spiral of death and live happily on your terms. Great post!
5.) Some Basics About Filing Taxes by A Dime Saved
The first quarter is a horrible time of the year for many people: it’s TAX season!
A Dime Saved has some basics on filing taxes which hopefully will help you make this time of year a little less stressful.
I personally learned a few things from this article and will be putting the information to work in a week or two when I get to doing my taxes.
