I’m doing something a little different this Friday. Instead of one main article, I’ve got a few different thoughts on my mind. Typically, I’d do this on Twitter, but things disappear on the timeline fast that it doesn’t seem worth it.
Giveaway on Kid Wealth
I’m giving away a course on entrepreneurship for kids ages 10-18 on Kid Wealth. It was created by a financial expert with the certifications and credentials to match. It includes twice a week live video conferences for accountability. It’s timed perfectly to fight your kid’s summer learning loss. By the way, I know a guy and he says your odds of winning are extremely good. Go here to enter.
The other news is that the annual Plutus Awards are taking nominations. The Plutus Awards are like the Oscars, Emmys, or some other award show with a red carpet that my wife watches. Except it’s for personal finance… and there’s no red carpet and it’s not televised and it’s not reported by the news. Nonetheless, it’s important to me to continue a streak of never winning one. I could take the easy way out and simply ignore it, but that’s no fun. It’s much more fun to play the game.
However, to get in the game, I need your help. I need to be nominated. That means that someone has to go to the Plutus Awards Nominations Page and enter in my website in a relevant category.
Below are a few suggestions. My best chances may be the first two. Regular readers know that Lazy Man and Money covers personal finance very broadly. I can write about military pensions one day, investments the next, and college planning after that. That means it doesn’t fit in a nice category. I’ve been a finalist for a Lifetime Achievement, so that seems like the best path.
Secondly, Kid Wealth is perfect for the best financial literacy content for children. It’s a perfect fit unless some of the other categories and Lazy Man and Money

Make Extra Money
Does inflation have you worried? It seems to be on everyone’s mind these days. The people from Savings Advice have a blog post on how to make more money on the side. I got started dog sitting several years ago with the idea of making a couple of hundred extra dollars a month. Now, I make thousands and thousands. This blog was designed to explore side hustles and then it became one itself!
Savings Advice is probably one of the oldest personal finance websites on the internet. Some people have created blogs on the site and have run them for more than 10 years. They also have some money forums which is a good place to get some quick money answers.
