Welcome to the Women’s Personal Finance Wednesday Roundup! We started this series back in 2018 on TreadLightlyRetireEarly.com to showcase the fabulous women in the online personal finance community who are talking about money online. Even now, there is a perception that women aren’t good with money, don’t care about money, or don’t understand it on a granular level beyond perhaps knowing how to coupon and score a good shopping deal.
These roundups are our way of doing a small part to change that perception. There is no shortage of women online doing their part to make it clear that they DO understand money, and these posts are meant to amplify that fact.
Why does it matter? Because representation matters. Because reading and hearing stories from those who (may or may not) look like us show us that yes, we too can figure out this money thing, that we too have important stories to tell. And that we too know quite a lot about money and are experts worth listening to.
Since Women’s Personal Finance has grown up to get its own website, it’s time to transition these roundups over here to the dedicated website. Same great content, new home!
Our Women’s Personal Finance Facebook group on Facebook also has a sharing thread on Fridays, and that’s the place to read all the blog posts written by members over the previous week. If you’re looking for more articles written by women, that’s a great place to continue reading (plus we have plenty of great discussions on finances the rest of the week as well!).
If you don’t have the time or inclination to go searching down myriad posts, though, we will be continuing this series every week to showcase some of the best of the new content we read. If you ever read a post you think we absolutely need to consider for this roundup, please let us know! We are always open to reading new blogs and want to celebrate those newer voices as well as the more seasoned ones.
And with that, here is the best (in our opinion) content by women and nonbinary folks this past week. Let us know what you think in the comments! We love discussion.
Women’s Personal Finance Weekly Roundup #33 (Actually, 170)
1. How to Know it’s Time to Leave your Job Reni the Resource
“If you’re reading this, you are probably questioning whether or not you should stay in your role and trust me, I was there. I created this list of 6 signs to help you decide (they don’t call me Reni the Resource for nothing, chile).
Before I start, be affirmed in the fact that you are not a bad person for wanting to leave your job, even if this job has done so much for you. There comes a time where you must let go of what you think is good to make room for something better.”
2. Why We Choose To Rent How Much Is That In Tacos?
“Whatever your decision, make sure you take the time to really figure out what you want and need. Do the math.
And remember that no decision is permanent. If you change your mind a few years later or your life situation changes, it’s just time to do the math again, make the necessary changes, and move on to your best life. “
“What this reel totally ignores is that you have develop the content, build up enough of an audience to be appealing to sponsors, and then convince people to buy the product.
The actual sale – seconds.
The framework to make that sale – can literally take years.
That $180 in 20 minutes was the addition of three links to my blog. From a company I’ve worked with for years and trust, for products I immediately recognized and wasn’t fussed about adding, to older, existing blog posts.”
