This week I got some exciting news from my boss…
Myself and my work pals are being enrolled in a workplace pension, thanks to the government’s auto-enrolment scheme!
It’s happened! The day thousands of people have been dreading is finally here and the Bank of England has increased interest rates for the first time in the last 10 years. The change is only small, increasing from 0.25% to 0.5%, but it’s likely to negatively impact millions of people across the country. Interest rates may increase further in the coming months, but nothing is set in stone just yet.
I did something exciting and out of character last night. I bought tickets to a money blogging conference over in Orlando, Florida in 2018!
Every year, personal finance bloggers and money nerds from around the world get together to discuss all things money and media at the FinCon expo. The event’s hosted at a different US location each time. This year’s conference was in Dallas, last year’s was in San Diego and the year before it was in Charlotte.
Over the course of four days there are lectures, mentoring sessions, and parties, giving money-obsessed weirdos like me a chance to learn new skills and meet like-minded people. I for one cannot wait!
