The Plutus Awards team highlights the best in financial media every week in the Plutus Awards Showcase. To submit an item you’ve written, created, or found for next week’s feature, follow us on Twitter.
We have a few Plutus Awards finalists this week! And…we’re focusing on family money and a few of the important aspects of the current economic crisis. From what to do when facing job loss to smart moves to make with student loans and your home, we have it all. The Plutus Foundation and Plutus Awards social media team has been working to put together a series of webinars and Instagram takeovers featuring important voices in the financial media. We understand how isolated many individuals are starting to feel and how families (mainly parents) are needing some relief both emotionally and financially. We want you to know that we’re here with you through all of this and whatever support you need we want to be the ones to provide it to you. If you need support during these times, please reach out to us.
