    Episode 23: Are Black Friday Deals Even Worth it?

    In this solo episode, I get into my opinions about Black Friday Deals. I also share about my favorite gift, interesting ways to save on your shopping, and how to create a thoughtful gift for your loved ones this holiday. 

    Tips:

    - Replace old items that you use regularly ( bedding, cookware, towels, clothing, shoes, etc.)

    - Upgrade items that no longer function well to meet your needs (consider the ROI)

    - Gift ( look at items that can be gifted that fall within your budget)

    - Set a dollar limit per person

    - Avoid overspending on your credit card

    - Utilize credit card rewards for gift cards

    - Avoid spending money on gifts that are low-quality and lack helpful features

    - Research reviews before you purchase gifts for yourself or family

    - Avoid purchasing items with bonus items that aren't useful

    - If you're creative consider making a gift

    - Get gifts that match the personality of your friends and family

    Episode 21: Fascinating Reasons You Need to Consider Freelance Writing

    Wow! We made it to Season Two. Thanks to all my listeners out there that help support me building this content. In this episode, I interview Gee Nonterah, who has a PhD in Biology and replaced her income through freelance healthcare writing. She says that her degree, while helpful, wasn't the only success factor in her building up her business.
