Blog Round-Up: Week of January 19, 2015

I hope those who enjoyed a 3-day holiday weekend did so. I certainly enjoyed a shorter work week. šŸ™‚ Plus, I’m just happy that everyone is healthy again.

Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr., I wanted to celebrate and recognize a man whose efforts changed our world. Somedays, you may feel small and insignificant and wonder how you can bring change in this world. I know I do. It seems impossible for your voice to be heard.

It’s been another busy, but good week for me. It always seems to take a moment or two to get back up-to-speed after a break. As I was organizing my calendar for next week, I realized that we’re already at the mid-point of January, which doesn’t seem possible. And many of us are headed into a long holiday weekend, which I’m certainly looking forward to enjoying.

Resolve to Break the Money Taboo Cycle in Your Home

It continues to sadden me to see how money remains a taboo topic in many homes. Even worse, so few people realize the high price of keeping money secrets.

How To Help Kids Conquer Fear and Achieve Goals

One of my good friends and regular commenters, DC from Young Adult Money, mentioned that the fear of failure is something that many millennials really struggle with because they were taught to not fail.
