On this Valentine’s Day edition of Weekly Wisdom, we’d like to explore the connection between passion and personal finance.
Passion is like love in action.
Passion can propel you to do things you once thought were impossible. When you’re passionate about your financial freedom, you’ll learn how to save money–probably something that once seemed difficult.
You’ll learn how to earn money, on your own terms.
And, you’ll invest it wisely and in a way that’s aligned with your values.
So, here are some of the best posts that I discovered this week. Passionate posts. I hope they fan those flames of financial freedom, if you already have an inferno burning. If you just need a spark, I hope these can serve as tinder.
