Hey y'all!! Hope your work week wasn't too tough and you have some great plans for the weekend. It has been super busy over here as we prepare for next week's Facebook Live with Simple and our friend Priya Malani of Stash Wealth.
You may have also seen that we entered The Start Something Challenge, which is a local pitch competition for small businesses. Those with the most views on their YouTube entries make it to the semi-finals so we could really use your support to get us there! If you've already taken the time to watch our 30-second video on why Dani started Invibed — THANK YOU! If you haven't yet, please click here and help us out 🙂
Okay, enough babble from us. On to J. Money's weekly blog roundup! This series is powered by Rockstar Finance aka the online museum of the best personal finance articles on the web. If you haven't already, go check them out!
