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.
As Sarah Li Cain discussed in her Plutus Awards Podcast episode this week, grief during the time of the pandemic is serious and understanding your grief, what triggers it, and how to set ourselves up for financial success are just as important as the amount of money in our savings account. May has been mental health awareness month and we’re ending it on a high note by highlighting some podcast episodes and articles that provide a wealth of resources and help for those who need it (which seems to be all of us at times).
Coming up next week we’re going to be announcing the categories for the Plutus Awards so stay tuned! The Plutus Foundation will also be announcing a new series of webinars and content creator focused live streams.

Thankfully he had a will and medical proxy… but that was it.” – Budgets Are Sexy
