The Best From Fearless Dollar So Far

You knew that Fearless Men just started a new site, right? We’ve posted over 80 finance articles at Fearless Men to help make your money grow. It’s been so popular and we just haven’t had the bandwidth to go as far, or as in depth, as we want to with personal finance for our readers.

We also discovered from the internet ranking system Alexa, that half of our readership is women. Apparently, women want to understand more about men. But we’ve also been encouraged by some of our lady readers to start a site aimed directly to them. We haven’t taken that leap yet. Unfortunately someone bought right out from under our noses 🙁 . But we have decided to aim our Fearless Men’s new Personal Finance site at both men and women.

The purpose of Fearless Dollar is to help you take your money further. Whether it’s overcoming fear, killing debt, becoming wiser, or furthering your financial education, we want to be a part of your growth.

Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve covered in the two weeks since we started Fearless Dollar:

Catherine says we need to not just be “fearless” to be wise about our money, but to be not be full of fear when it comes to how that can affect our relationships.
