Totally Money Carnival – Millionaire Teacher Edition

Welcome to this week’s edition of the Totally Money Carnival. There is approximately 100 posts in this edition.

As always, I am finishing this  up at around 12 am, and trying to think of something clever to use a theme.All I can think of right now is trying to find time to finish my book, Millionaire Teacher, by Andrew Hallam.  Its such a good book, really. Andrew was kind enough to send me his book and I have been trying to steal away minutes to finish reading it. I will be doing a review on it rather soon for the 6 people in the world who haven’t read it yet.


But first, lets do a bit of house keeping;

Totally Money Carnival is still looking for hosts, so if you are interested in hosting, see here, and if you want to be included in this carnival next week, please make sure to submit your article here.

    Thanks for including my post Marissa. I should consider hosting the TotallyMoney carnival, especially as my blog won a couple of awards with them recently.
