On this exact day four years ago, I was sitting in my bedroom brainstorming names and trying to come up with something that encompassed my personality as well as my message. After lots of coffee, and crumpled up pieces of paper, I registered the carefulcents.com domain name.

But I don't feel like celebrating. Here's why. #business  #blogging

I always advise mentoring clients to stay away from #freelance job boards. Here's what the Careful Cents team suggests instead!
Do traditional freelance job boards turn you off to starting an online business? Here's how to find better-paying and high quality work as a freelancer.

These are all so true!
 
5. Nothing will happen the way you think it will.
Those "overnight successes" are almost invariably the product of exhausting behind-the-scenes work and years of practice and failure.

It took waaaaay too long but I finally transferred over my Roth IRA from Edward Jones to Betterment, and I couldn't be happier! Cheers to saving over $1,000 a year in fees. #investing  #retirement #roboadvisor
As a self-employed freelance my income is very inconsistent. But an IRA rollover to Betterment allows me to deposit money regularly and save money on fees.
