Happy Monday, Community members! I have some very exciting news to share: @Will Simons has joined The Penny Hoarder as our new Community Marketing Manager. He will be taking the helm of this forum, helping guide conversations so we can all learn more about personal finance.
We’re so excited to have him, and we at The Penny Hoarder know he’s looking forward to meeting you all. Please welcome Will!
We did not have a Community Update last week, so here’s a look at some great posts from the last two weeks:
- We wanted to know if you would ever invest in cryptocurrency. Although this survey is closed last Tuesday, you can check out what 113 of your fellow Community members had to say — and add your own response in the comments.
- Have you considered a career in health care? Over the next 10 years, there are expected to be 2,675,000 jobs added in the fastest growing fields that don’t require a bachelor’s degree. Check out our graphic featuring seven of the top health care jobs.
- Do you have a pet? If so, you know they can be expensive to care for. Even toys can add up. Let us know how you keep costs low when investing in entertainment for your furry friend.
- Are you on track with your retirement savings? How are you saving up? Take our survey before it closes tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. EST.
