I bet you weren’t expecting a weekend post! Well today I have the pleasure of hosting the fifth Yakezie Blog Swap. Twenty two of the best personal finance bloggers on the internet have come together to answer one question: What is your Financial Motivation?
These bloggers are letting you into some of their deepest personal thoughts and motivations, and each one of the articles is sure to give you a new appreciation for the author. I’ve read every single one of these posts, and they are all great!
My Favorite Swapped Post
Maybe it’s because I’m always amazed with success stories from people who grew up with so much less than I had, but I loved Sandy’s post about Fear of Poverty at Beating Broke; specifically the poverty she experienced as a child, is her financial motivation. Great post Sandy!
Also, don’t forget to check out Derek’s post about Fear, Family and Independence right here on Thousandaire.
