Happy Friday, friends! One of the highlights of our week is J. Money of Rockstar Finance's weekly roundup of personal finance articles — and we hope you guys are enjoying this series as much as we are.
Today we've got a great lineup from the blogs including a deeper look into the American workweek, why you don't need to be FI to say FU, and a great question: do our first dollars bring the most value to our lives?
These are some awesome reads and we'd love to hear your thoughts!
Have a great weekend 🙂
