I love today’s contribution to the Roth IRA Challenge. Des over at Half Banked is awesome at talking about financial basics and helping you apply the principles to your own situation. Today is a perfect example of that! The Roth IRA Challenge is all about figuring out how to earn and/or raise $5500 and make sure it goes towards the goals you want. After you learn loads and get excited to read more and do more, go check out her blog. Also, in my defense, the following conversation never happened, but I’ll let Des take it from here…
Maggie: Des, you should participate in the Roth IRA Challenge!
Des: Are you sure?! I’m not really a side-hustler – unless my
sad fledgling Etsy store counts?
Maggie: Well, how much have you made from it?
Des: *checks total* Tens of dollars!
A proficient side-hustler, I am not.
