As I’ve been working on building my LinkedIn presence over the past year, I have received quite a few direct messages on the platform regarding “entrepreneurial ventures.” The message sender will introduce themselves, comment on my current role, offer some form of praise, and ask if I would be willing to jump on a quick call to discuss a side project with them.

As someone in their twenties, working hard to grow in my career, I usually say yes, since learning about someone’s business or a possible side hustle can’t hurt. However, I’m starting to…

These last few years have been a financial wake-up call for many, myself included. I used to spend mindlessly- comfort buying or shopping as a form of escape was something I indulged in regularly. While acquiring new items may be exciting for a quick minute, I have come to realize that saving and investing is so much more fulfilling in the long run.
