Hi everyone, I hope you’re all doing well. It’s been about four weeks since we’ve gone remote at The Penny Hoarder. I know the past few weeks have been challenging for many of us. So, I thought I’d ask: what’s keeping you going? What’s making you smile? Though I’m quarantined, I’ve made a point to connect virtually with friends and family, and of course, this community. Those connections and conversations keep me going! I think we can all use a pick me up and reminder of all the good things...Read More...
