Your home can be an economic, financial foundation for you and many of your future generations or be an Automated Teller.
Using your home as an automated teller is one of the big reasons we had the recent Global Financial Crisis. According to many sources, officially the Global Financial Crisis started on August 9, 2007. We all can debate the official start date of the recent Global Financial Crisis, but we all know that the fall of 2007 earmarked the start of a rough ride financially around the world.
In the last year or two, we have seen the United States start to emerge from this financial crisis. My biggest concern for everyone will our minds default to forgetting that the economic turmoil lasted in the USA for almost a decade and some parts of the globe are still in financial crisis.
I am not here to criticize anyone for the crisis as most of us can take some responsibility.
Whether you remortgaged your home, used your line of credit, carried a credit card balance from month to month, purchased furniture or electronics with no payments for a year only to get caught with a considerable amount of interest added to the purchase price after a year; most of us were caught up in one of these scenarios.
Many of us have good intentions to pay in full after a year or not carry a credit balance, but somehow we get hit with high-interest charges, our life gets us sidetracked. Those of us who lived in LifeStyle got caught up in these easy credit access traps; these traps put a grip on us and in many cases never let go. We find ourselves transferring debt from one financial vehicle to another; with some illusion, we have fixed our credit crisis. It reminds me of the two little pigs who thought their foundation was stable until the Big Bad Wolf blew their homes down.
Is your house made of financial straw or sticks that will come tumbling down leaving you with a money pit and not because of its construction but because of how you used your materials?
As children, we are inundated with many expressions and fairy tales that are thrust upon us like they are the truth. Remember most fairy tales have been around for centuries and are woven into our culture as if they are correct. Maybe all fairy tales have some reality rooted in the stories.
The fairy tale of “The Three Little Pigs” talks to us about a great foundation; this is one of the morals of the story and rings as real today as it did centuries ago. You are investing your time in reading this website, and my promise to you is to help you build a strong foundation no matter your age, your lot in life or what stage of life you think you are.
If you ask me when is the best time to invest I will always tell you Now, Now and Now. It is hard to live in the Now if you have yourself caught up in the past or analyzing the future. The history and future tend to be the times we get caught up in and create indecision. The opportunity to take action is “Now.”
I intend to help you recognize the straw and sticks in your financial world and see how we can help turn these materials into brick building an economic foundation that will live a long life even after you have left this world.
Are you ready to lay the first brick to the cornerstone of your strong financial foundation?
