It’s time for a Friday Flight! These episodes are all about the week’s news and the effects of the pandemic on your personal finances. There are a lot of headlines out there, but we are distilling it down to specific takeaways that will allow you to not just weather this health and financial crisis, but to come out on the other side even stronger. In this episode we cover some interesting and helpful stories like: getting vaccinated, PPE expenses are tax deductible, IRS phishing scams, Robinhood confetti on the way out, irrelevant stock predictions, 91k greasy pennies, inflation concerns, the top stressor for Americans, happiness and the role of money, and better browsers for privacy.
