I recently met a man who had been financially ruined.
It all started when his health went south and he could no longer work. He lost his house and was living in a small apartment on oxygen with his wife and children. His wife was the sole bread winner and didn't earn enough income.
His faith, dreams and positive outlook on life were shaken. I could tell depression had sunken in. Where he once thrived, he felt all was lost.
Health issues, accidents and job lose happen all the time. You never know when they will strike your family. It doesn’t have to take a natural disaster to send your situation into a tailspin of devastation.
Many American’s live paycheck-to-paycheck where missing a single payday would cause serious money problems.
Let’s take some time to talk about mistakes you can avoid now to put your family in a better financial situation so that when unfortunate circumstances show up, big or small, they don’t knock you into financial ruin.
