I hope everyone had a great week.
I wanted to kick off by telling you all about an exciting announcement we made this week.
We’re hosting a virtual Q&A via Facebook Live titled “How To Make Money When Jobs Are Scarce,” featuring New York Times bestselling author and side hustle expert, Chris Guillebeau and The Penny Hoarder’s entrepreneurship and jobs reporter, Adam Hardy. You can expect an informative dialogue on how to earn additional income during these unprecedented times. The Facebook Live will take place Wednesday, May 27 at 1 p.m. ET. You can register here.
We’ve had a number of interesting money questions come up in the community this week. Here’s a couple I’d love to hear your thoughts on:
@Kathleen Jones asked How soon and what method makes money quickly for me to pay off my credit card debt?.
