Weekly Link Round-up For August 27, 2010

This week on @blueleaf we posted two articles on loving your career, “Love Or Money – Which Do You Work For?” and “Money Matters But Money Isn’t Everything.”

My viewpoint as a college student: The way I see it, if I don’t fall in love with my future career (or at least like it), I’ll have less money for retirement in the end. The more I will hate my career, the more I will spend on lavish vacations and conveniences to make my time away from work more fruitful. The more stressed out I will be. The more stressed out my family will be. The more I’ll spend on shopping, make-up, designer clothes, foot rubs, therapy, and who knows what else? Choosing wisely early on will be a good investment.
