We have all seen giveaways from brands; you might wonder why brands do this or how they can afford it. The truth is brands can do this because it is tax-deductible, meaning they get their money back when tax season rolls around. Brands also do this because it is excellent advertising; I mean, who doesn't like free stuff? This brings us to our topic: #VenmoMe.
Tomorrow is Friday the 13th, and considering the holiday's superstitious history, I wanted to share some tips from Twitter about avoiding bad luck with finances and taxes. This article is a different kind of Social Media Round-up, but I decided that there is no better day than Friday the 13th to try something new because if it flops, I will blame it on bad luck. I find this mindset funny because I think much of "bad luck" is actually just bad planning, and I hope this Twitter commentary can help us all avoid the pitfalls of poor finances and poor tax planning. Let's get started.
Entrepreneur and businesswoman aren't the first words I think of when I imagine the pop star, Rihanna, however all that is about to change because, according to Forbes, she is now a billionaire.

Work-Life Balance has generated quite a bit of buzz. It seems that the younger generation is throwing away the capitalistic mantra of “No Days Off!” and recycling it into "PLEASE, take days off for your health. As a member of Gen-Z, I agree that self-care should come first, not your job. However, I also recognize that self-care should not be an excuse for underdelivering at said job. I figured I would look at what Twitter is saying about Work-Life Balance and share it with you for this week's social media round-up.
Is Florida "Covid-Free?" No, but people are sure acting like it. Florida is opening back up, and according to usafacts.org, 39% of Florida's population is COVID-19 vaccinated.

Today's social media round-up will show both sides of the argument. Let's begin.
