Hey Plutus family, it’s that time again. Check out what we have for you this week!
The Important, and Unimportant. [J L Collins] — “Important: becoming financially independent. In doing so you have bought your freedom. Freedom to spend your life and time as you wish without the need to trade your labor for money. Unimportant: whether you choose to retire from your job or keep working once you are FI. Being FI doesn’t require you to quit a job you enjoy. It just means you get to choose.” (Submitted by J. Money.)
Myth Busting Women’s Banking for Women’s History Month. [Femme Frugality] —”I keep seeing articles and some allusions on big financial sites that say something along the lines of, “It was illegal for women to have bank accounts in their own name before the 1960s.” (Submitted by Tarsha.)
Stop Using Finance as Your Coping Mechanism. [We Want Guac] — “Money is no substitute for relationships or achieving your goals. Money can certainly give you a nice roof over your head, food, clothes, experiences. It can even set you free from working for the rest of your life, if you so wish. It just won’t replace your need for a deep connection with others, nor will it truly fill the void with the less tangible qualities of life.” (Submitted by J. Money.)
