I don’t remember how I first discovered LearnVest
, but I’m enjoying discovering and learning what the website has to offer. I’ve found that by following LearnVest on Facebook
, I’m less likely to miss any of their informative articles.
It’s the articles on frugal living that catch my attention the most, and often those frugal living articles have a sustainable approach. Here are a few examples.
Then there’s Old-Fashioned Homesteading is the New Feminist Career
written by Shannon Hayes, author of “Radical Homemakers.” For a website that focuses on helping women with their finances and careers, it’s refreshing to see the choice of staying at home — not to work at home but to be a homemaker — offered as a respected option.
Now that LearnVest is in my Facebook stream, many of their website posts get linked to on my page. They also link to financial posts and articles from other sites.
There’s more to LearnVest than just articles. I have yet to delve into the financial planning areas of the site, but they offer many financial tools including financial boot camp classes and more in-depth financial courses.
Just this morning, LearnVest announced that it has been named one of Time’s 50 Best Websites of 2011. If you’re interested in seeing how managing your money and being sustainable can work hand in hand, LearnVest is worth a look.
