Happy Friday! I hope you’ve been staying warm now that’s it’s for real winter. Here’s what I was up to this week.
How I Earned Money This Week
We had three different Airbnb guests stay with us this week and through the weekend.
Money Circle was this week, and the Eventbrite payout is in process.
Dan’s bi-weekly paycheck came in today.
How I Spent Money This Week
I worked downtown a few times this week, in between meetings. I bought myself lunch at BiBap in Dupont Circle, and bought some hot chocolate at Emissary.
One of my favorite singers, LP, is coming to DC in February! Tickets went on sale yesterday, so I got tickets for Dan and me. Her last show here sold out before I could buy tickets, so I made it a priority this time.
I hadn’t gotten a haircut since July, so it was definitely time for one. I had grown my hair out a bit for the wedding, and was missing my short hair. So I went to Bubbles Salon near Union Station for a cut. I’m not super thrilled with how it turned out, so I might need a touch up after Christmas. Do you have a favorite hair stylist in DC or Maryland? I’m on the hunt for a new one that I can trust!
Last night, I went to a holiday happy hour for the women’s entrepreneur group that I’m in. (It’s called Feminist Founder, and if you’re a self-employed lady in the DC-area, you should join!) I got a beer, pot stickers, and bacon wrapped dates (yus).
What I’m Writing
My latest piece on ForbesWomen is up! This week, I wrote about a new report that shows the discrepancy between how investors think they are making funding decisions and what is really happening. Spoiler: women and minority-owned businesses get the short end of the stick.
What I’m Up To
The December Money Circle meetup was this week! We got really worked up talking about the stresses and expectations around holiday gift-giving. Stay tuned for a special Money Circle in January!
Money Tip to Take Into the Weekend
That’s all from me today! Have a fantastic weekend!
