Carnival of Money Stories

Welcome to the Carnival Of Money Stories Labor Day Edition!

I used to love Labor Day. My excitement would increase as I got closer to the three day weekend. I thought, “A Sunday night that I didn’t have to dread going into work the next day, yay!”

Now, it’s completely different. I love working. My mastermind group isn’t meeting today because of the holiday and I’m a bit disappointed. I am looking forward to the parade with my children but am planning on working while they take a nap. I am already excited to check things off my list.

If you love Labor Day like I used to love Labor Day, take some time out today to think about how you can make next Labor Day a disappointment (because you love what you do so much! :))

Now take a minute to realize how nice it feels to sit and relax, and dig into the links!
