  1. Hey Stephen!

    I really love your blog and often refer to it for advice. I know that you only blog once a week–but was wondering if you’d consider making an exception and be a guest blogger on my blog, Lizainthelou.blogspot.com. It’s a lifestyle, family and money-saving blog. I get anywhere between 500-900 individual hits each time I write a new post and many of my viewers live in Missouri.

    I was talking to a single friend of mine recently who shared honestly that she hadn’t started saving or thinking about retirement because she always assumed that her husband would do that for her. She’s nearing 30 and isn’t dating anyone. I would love a post about money geared towards women. What do you think women need to know about money? As a male, is it attractive to find women who are financially smart? Many of my viewers are stay-at-home moms or are considering staying at home. Any suggestions on planning to live off of one income? (These are all ideas– I am open!).

    If this is something you’d consider doing, please let me know. If you are too busy now, I completely understand! Maybe another time:)
