Well, the latest Carnival of Personal Finance is up, and it’s a doozy! My post, Money Advice for the College Student, Part III is included. I was on the fence about whether I should post Part I or Part III. I have been told that Part III is the strongest, so that’s why I chose to go with that – but I think the whole thing is worth reading, because I wrote it the way I carry on conversations with my friends about finance: find out what already know, calm any fears, and then share what I know.
Here are other articles featured in the Carnival that I enjoyed:
War on the War on the Middle Class – If you want to get ahead, stop trying to keep up with the Jones!
