This week marks one year since we launched For What It’s Worth, and we’re taking a break from our regularly scheduled programming to celebrate.
Since the beginning, our goal has been to help readers like you understand the basics of investing and give you the resources, news, and trends you need to confidently align your investments with your values — in short, how to make your heads and hearts happy when investing.
Over the past year, we hope you’ve learned a lot (we certainly did!) all while the financial picture changed pretty dramatically. We hope that FWIW has been helpful in navigating these occasionally choppy waters while also opening your eyes to options and opportunities to use your capital to make an impact and invest in the world you want.
Thank you for joining us and giving us a little of your time every week to help you on your financial journey. To get a sense of what you’ve learned — and what you might want to learn more about — check out our Second (Not Annual) Quiz a bit farther down in this issue.
While we cut ourselves a slice (or two) of cake, we are also recommitting to continue to expand FWIW and would love to hear from you, whether it’s about what you’ve enjoyed, what you think we’re missing, or even puns you wish we had been able to resist.
