Money to the Masses

Community milestone

This week saw the Money to the Masses Facebook Community welcome its 1000th member after just 3 months, which is a great milestone.

The community is a friendly environment where members support each other by offering help and guidance to one another. Members' thoughtful responses to questions are fantastic. Even though the group is only a couple of months old it has already become home to a wealth of information and resources.

If you are not able to find the answer to your financial questions on the Money to the Masses website I would highly recommend you join the community and pose your question to fellow members.
Enjoy this week's newsletter.
