The (True) Legend of Flamingo Fridays
There once was a painter who started working in a neighborhood and quickly discovered something unique.
Almost all of the neighbors seemed to know, and like, each other.
The painter was highly skilled and kept getting referral after referral.
Finally, he asked one of his customers why so many people in the neighborhood got along so well.
The answer? Flamingo Fridays.
Each Friday, someone put a pair of plastic flamingos in their front lawn. Everyone knew that driveway was “the spot” for Flamingo Fridays that week.
The neighbors gathered with chairs and their favorite beverages, maybe even awkwardly at first.
But, over time, they talked, laughed, and cried together, and they helped each other enough that they become close friends.
How Flamingo Fridays Works at The Money Mix
At The Money Mix, a big part of Our Why is uniting the personal finance community.
Flamingo Fridays is a natural fit for us to encourage each other as members of the personal finance community and for us to help each other grow.
Each Friday, one personal finance blog will be selected as the “host” for the week.
The host blog will be announced via a post Friday morning on The Money Mix that will appear on the slider above.
