1. Find Your Next Level Money by Millennial Money

“Over the past 2 years, I’ve written over 300,000 words about money, spent over 200 hours talking and recording for the podcast, answered over 1,700 reader emails, and done over 200 media interviews all about money. Many people ask me what’s my best piece of advice about money.”

2. Dear Kids, Check Out These Millennial Bloggers. Love, Mom by Downsize Your 2080

“Find those with a writing voice you like, a career path or other demographic you match, an investment goal you share, or an informative and inspiring website that draws you back for more. Hear their perspectives, which dad and I can’t provide. Talented writers are sharing experiences that are different than your dad and I gave you.”

3. What Elon Musk Can Teach Us About Early Retirement by Abandoned Cubicle

“What compels you and me to want to retire early is the powerful rational side of our brain that understands our limitations. What we want isn’t too far off from what Musk wants: control of our destiny.”

4. Building a Wealth Snowball by Get Rich Slowly 

“The sooner you grow your wealth snowball — and the bigger you grow it — the sooner you can do the things you dream of doing.”

5. How To Handle Expensive Family Expectations by Frugalwoods

“Money is a scorching hot, third rail of conversation for most people to begin with–no wonder it’s the leading cause of divorce in the US–and layering on the equally eviscerating dynamics of family relationships can make this topic feel insurmountable. But I’m pretty sure it doesn’t have to be this way.”

6. Why Side Hustles Are Made For Modern Millennials by The Origami Life

“I’ve always wanted to do well at my job (and still do), but I’ve found that tying my self-worth with my job just isn’t making me any happier. I want to create something that no one else can take credit for.”

7. City vs. Country: Which Is Cheaper? The Ultimate Cost Of Living Showdown by Frugalwoods

“The overarching message I want to drive home today is the importance of choosing to live where you WANT to live. Not where you feel you should live or where you perceive is cheapest.”

8. How to Face the Dark Sides of FIRE by Financially Alert

“While there are many incredible benefits and advantages to FIRE, there are some dark sides to FIRE which need to be faced and navigated.”

9. The Unconventional Way to Live Your Life by Budgets are Sexy

“Desire paths are not created by design; rather, they are the natural result of people who look around and see a better way to get where they’re going.”

10. Our “High School Rule” for Work in Early Retirement by Our Next Life

“If there’s something I could do that looks like work, I’ll do it if I would have happily done it for free in high school. If not, then it’s a hard pass.”
