“Most people die at 25 and aren’t buried until they’re 75.” ~Benjamin Franklin
“GRIND in your 20s. BUILD in your 30s. CHILL in your 40s.”
I am just going to put this question into the atmosphere that I have asked on some occasions but I never get responses. I pray today there will be a healthy dialogue on this subject matter.
ARE YOU FINANCIALLY STABLE ENOUGH IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A CHRONIC ILLNESS YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SUSTAIN?
DO YOU KNOW YOUR JOB’S INFORMATION ON SHORT AND LONG TERM DISABILITY?
DO YOU HAVE MORE THAN YOUR COMPANY’S LIFE INSURANCE IN PLACE?
MOST IMPORTANTLY, DO YOU HAVE A LIVING WILL OR POWER OF ATTORNEY?
I am only asking these questions because as Young Adults we are vesting our time and our financial goals on retirement and purchasing our first home. We very often forget the middle of the story and that is LIFE. Life happens and a lot of the time when “life” comes knocking it will be a very unexpected approach where you will not have time to prepare. If you have not begun figuring out the “game of life” the most important rule to the game is to have multiple avenues of income flowing in your household and to SAVE, SAVE, SAVE, SAVE….. Many of us are only relying on our main career/job to get us to retirement. Billionaires and Millionaires did not acquire their wealth from that approach, they had many avenues that were running parallel and/or perpendicular to grow their wealth.
I am sharing this information because FINANCES is a big chunk of the healing process of a Chronic Illness Young Adult because of the long list of medications, doctor visits, and procedures you do not want to have the added stress when you are trying to manage and overcome something much greater than money, your LIFE. Please sit down and really create your “Wealth Plan.” As your Chronic Illness journey is beginning you have to have a plan and attainable/actionable goals to accomplish. I highly recommend meeting with a Financial Advisor that can help guide you along your way so you know that you are getting the most out of your investments and that you are budgeting that is conducive to you and your family’s life style. It is never too late to get your “house” in order as long as you are alive and breathing your dreams can still become a reality. Take control of your FINANCES because you do not want them to control you, your healing, and your LEGACY!
I am going to make this a short and simple post because you need the time to marinate on this information I have provided to you. I can show you how to grow your wealth in its current state and I have people who can help guide you through as well. First, YOU HAVE TO JUMP!!!! You have to take a chance and believe in you and your family. You need to create your everlasting LEGACY to generate and build your EMPIRE today that will lead you into FREEDOM!
