The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, The Blessings – About Finances!

Let’s talk about it……… The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, The Blessings… About our Finances!

So many people are in financial trouble that it is affecting their health and well-being. Are you in a situation where you have given up because you just don’t know what to do? Since the turn of the economy we have had to make major life decisions that I don’t feel anyone was prepared for. I don’t recall in college someone teaching me the skills to handle losing most of my income and how to feed my two children. This happened to me. I watched my 22+ year stellar credit history go in the toilet within a year. Does this make me financially irresponsible? If I told you I have been a real estate broker for over 12+ years would that make a difference? Would you understand how I could not make an income?

What about the rest of the country? There are so many people who have given up and retreated. People are ashamed and humiliated due to their unforeseen circumstances they do not know what to do. Most of us don’t want to call anyone we know to tell them how bad it really is. So we just stay at home while everything we worked our heart and soul for goes away. What if there was an opportunity to be able to ask pertinent questions about your situation without telling anyone who you are; would you be interested? Would you really want to know the truth?

Here are some powerful questions to ask yourselves. When did we, as a society, decide a FICO score was going to rule the decisions we have to make about feeding our families? Why do we allow the credit bureaus to evaluate our credit worthiness? When did they get the power to decide our fate? Could we stop feeling guilty and take responsibility for what did get us to where we are today?

I am assisting people in making prudent decisions about their finances and housing situations. Once you have the information to make a decision then you can take charge of your life and make a difference. Staying at home and hiding is not the answer to this epidemic. Talking about it and getting the tools to move forward will help you and the rest of the country. It is time for us to take back what is ours ~ the choice!
