Money at 30: Karat Creator Card Review

I don't remember the first time I heard about Karat — but I know I've seen it plenty of times since. Each time I'd come across it on Instagram, I'd visit their site, only to learn that it was still invite-only. Luckily for me, a few months ago, I actually came across an invite code and was finally able to apply... only for the platform to seemingly open up to the...

Blinkist Review: What Is It and Is It Worth the Price?

As I mentioned in the past I’ve made an effort this year to read/listen to more finance books and review them.

Unfortunately, managing content across these multiple platforms can be difficult — especially if I were to do it all manually. That's why I've used a social media scheduling tool for...

Viraltag Review (2020)

There's no doubt in my mind that Viraltag has helped me up my social media game and allowed me to gain solid followers even as a new site. From the ability to schedule posts while surfing the web (do people still say that?) to automatically reposting my best content, the service has surely saved me a ton of time maintaining my accounts.

Money at 30: Keeper Tax Review

Being self-employed means playing by a completely different set of tax rules. Of course, the odds of freelancers, gig workers, and others all being well versed in tax law is rather slim. In other words, many of us (myself included) could use some help navigating the world of tax deductions when it comes to our businesses. That's where Keeper Tax comes in. Built for freelancers and the self-employed, Keeper Tax...

Money at 30: Hurdlr Review — How Does it Compare to Quickbooks Self-Employed?

Love it or hate it, the gig economy has changed the way millions of Americans manage their money. While many of us may be used to having taxes withheld from our paychecks and only filing returns once a year, those who are technically self-employed need to consider their taxes throughout the year — not only because they may be required to make quarterly estimated payments but also because they may...
