I saw this wonderful quote by Benjamin Franklin this week on the local church’s billboard. It really resonated with me. It reminded me of all the wonderful things that we have available to us as professional nannies. We must first “invest” in knowledge, education and life to become well rounded individuals. Nannypalooza is coming up, INA is in the spring and there are many webinars available online along with the educational opportunities we have listed.
I am going to start doing something a little different on the first Friday of the month for Financial Friday. I am going share with you at least 4 blog posts that I found in the previous month that may be of interest to you. The reason is that there are so many wonderful financial bloggers out there and I would love to share them with you.
Make sure to check out these articles, the blogs and like them on Facebook and Twitter etc. I am sure they will provide you with additional insight on financial matters as well. The best part is that this a “free” INVESTMENT in Knowledge.
