Welcome to Friday’s Fab Links, my regular recommended blog reads post!
This week, I’ve been busy launching my new eBook “Achieving Debt Freedom” which is FREE to download for 3 more days until July 20th. You can download my eBook now by clicking this link! You can read all about my eBook in my launch post before you order it too.
To all the amazing PF bloggers who have been helping me promote my eBook this week – thank you – from the bottom of my heart! I’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of support I’ve received and because of your social shares, I’ve had hundreds of downloads already so far. You are all wonderful!
In other aspects of my life, I enjoyed attending my little girl’s school Sport’s Day earlier this week (another reason I’m thankful for being able to work from home, so I can attend events like this). I couldn’t believe it when she won a couple of races! She’s only 3 years old but boy oh boy… she can run fast!
I’m so proud of her and she got lots of stickers from nursery afterwards to say ‘well done’. I did kind of embarrass myself though by egging her on at the top of my voice far more loudly than the other parents. Maybe I’m more competitive than I thought previously. 🙂
Here are my recommended reads this week:
Wise Dollar published a great post by Laurie from The Frugal Farmer called Assessing Your Financial Situation: The Road to Debt Free. Laurie explains how to start assessing your finances including how to work out your net worth and debt to income ratio. This is something I still need to do so I’ll definitely be bearing this in mind.
Grayson Bell wrote Can You Complain When It’s Free? over at Frugal Rules. As much as I hate to admit it, I have found myself grumbling in the past over something I’ve received for free. This post explains why we should stop complaining over free stuff!
The Heavy Purse hosted a guest post from Kayla at Shoeaholicnomore called Teachable Money Moments – Missed Opportunities. Kayla explains different examples of money lessons she could have been taught during her childhood but missed out on. There’s some important messages in here for any parents out there!
I really enjoyed this fun post by Ricky from Skint Dad. For anyone who enjoys the TV series 24, you’ll probably love this: Jack Bauer’s (Hypothetical) 24 Money Making Tips. Not only is Jack pretty awesome at saving the planet, he’s also (hypothetically) very financially savvy too!
Ready for Zero had a great guest post by Matt from Listen, Money Matters called Dough on the Side: How to Earn Extra Cash on Your Lunch Break. Matt has a great way of telling a story, very witty and funny, and I wish I could write like this! There’s a great message in this article about making the most of opportunities to make money, this is well worth a read.
