I can’t believe it’s Monday already! I’m really glad I’m staying home today to recover from the flu and get caught up. If you’re taking a break from being back in the grind, here are my favorite recent links from the world of personal finance.
Mrs. Micah’s post, “What Currency Do You Use to Measure Your Life” is a great reminder of what’s really important. I know that keeping my goals fresh in mind is really helping me feel like I’m accomplishing something!
The Simple Dollar has a thought-provoking post, “Is Success a Choice?” I certainly agree that we have control over the choices we make with the hand we’re dealt.
I’ve been really tempted to consolidate my credit card debt. No Credit Needed‘s post, “Moving Debt is Not the Same as Paying it Off” reminded me exactly why I’m in the mess I’m in. All those student loans may have wiped out my credit card debt, but they didn’t wipe out my credit card habit! A very important distinction.
You must read “My Dad — Frugal, Generous, and my Hero” by Financial Learn. It’s such a beautiful testament to one father’s financial wisdom!
Finally, if you’re thinking about working from home, Antishay Ventenne has great tips at “How Can I Work at Home Successfully?” Since I’ll be writing at home this summer, I plan to try some of these tips myself.
Speaking of writing, for you faithful readers, I have really good news. I got an article accepted for an academic journal today! Hip, hip, hooray! As you know, this is a great step toward tenure at my little school, so it’s a huge relief for me!
