What we're reading

For the third weekly installment of our lighthearted, take-a-break-from-the-world and celebrate Women's History Month version of this newsletter, we're headed to Egypt.

You've almost certainly heard of Cleopatra, but have you heard about the other queen of Egypt? Have you heard the story of Cleopatra's 11-year-old sister, who also just so happens to have beat Caesar?

Who we're following

And to keep another one of this month's trends running, we're celebrating another hilarious anonymous #MedTwitter parody account! Her Twitter handle is @relatableafmd, and we've gotta say, we agree.

BBMD tip of the week

We've written a few times in this newsletter about general personal finance and the importance of having multiple revenue streams.

It might not seem like it with all of the current economic uncertainty, but right now is a spectacular time, if you're one of the many readers of this newsletter who find themselves homebound, to consider developing your brand and/or building a side-hustle (esp online).

Nobody knows where the market will go in the coming weeks/months. But when volatility strikes and we don't know which investments are good or not, it's helpful to remember that it's always a good time to invest in the one thing you can actually control - yourself.

Here are a few brands we respect the hell out of who've done a great job of this:

This Twitter thread and podcast - both titled "How to Get Rich (without getting lucky)" - are a great place to start.

We're currently working on a webinar about this topic - please let us know if you have any tips you think we should share, any questions you want answered, or any ideas that have worked for you!

Quote we're contemplating
