#009 — Links O’ The Week
Well another week has gone by, and there were many great articles I read out in the blogosphere. Here’s the highlights!
189th Carnival of Personal Finance: Super Bowl Edition
My article proclaiming that it’s never too late for New Years Resolutions was selected as part of the 189th Carnival of Personal Finance: Super Bowl Edition! Thanks to Emily Starbuck Gerson and her crew at creditcards.com for adding my article. Drop by and check out the Carnival!
My Top Picks This Week
Once you find a job to apply for, Squawkfox gives you tips on the 6 words that make your resume suck. I’ve gotta say, I’m guilty of a few of these! This is a great reference tool that I’ll return to and access from time to time.
Hopefully the job you apply for is better than MoneyMateKate’s list of the weirdest jobs she’s ever done. You have to see these!
Parents & Children
FrugalDad writes an excellent article on contributing to a Roth IRA for teenagers. It is never too early to use the power of compound interest.
Get Rich Slowly invites us to try out the Young Money Stock Market Game.
Finally, prayers go out to Paid Twice and his family, as he lost his father this month. Remarkably with all that’s going on with taking care of his mother and family in this unfortunate time, he’s found time to compile a list of things he’s learned losing a parent.
This list is a must for every family to complete so the financial and procedural details don’t add to your stress and time of grief.
Have a great weekend!
