I must confess that I browse many personal finance and entrepreneurship blogs, but I just don’t care for many of them. It’s hard to find a blog that you resonate with totally.
I’ve been investing my money since I was in high school and I want to read something a little more than just throwing your change into a jar or following your passions to be epic.
I could always link to one of the popular bloggers and kiss some ass telling them how passionate their piece was. I’m not going to do that. This week I wanted to highlight a personal blogger that deserves the spotlight.
The most epic article from the last little while is…
When Did Young People Become Such Pansies? @ Financial Uproar.
What makes this post so epic?
It’s a reminder for 20-somethings that are afraid of taking a risk. Nelson writes about how risks don’t have to be simply financial in our 20s. We can challenge ourselves by moving out of our parents place or switching locations to find a higher paying gig.
The truth is that I don’t think I’m taking enough risks. This is is why this piece jumped out at me. Despite traveling to Europe alone and various risky investments, I think that I can do more to challenge myself.
What’s my favorite line from this piece?
“Risk is made for young people. If you’re 22 and you lose a couple thousand bucks because of a risky investment gone wrong, you have 50 YEARS to make that money back. You don’t have kids to feed, you will be able to handle it. “
Once again you can always submit your piece in for the Epic Shiz of The Week to thefinancialblogger at gmail dot com.
