Very few people probably don’t think this is possible to do. But I am telling you that anything is possible and some people are able to do it. Our boys for sure don’t believe in it but we are working with them on it. They want everything now and not to save up for it.
We have talked about Choices and Consequences so much in our house that the boys will make jokes with me about it. We laugh and it does help me think about it when they say something about one of my choices.
What a crazy month. One we will never forget for sure but we sure wish we could. This month will go down as one of our worst months ever and it wasn’t because of any money matters.
We like to teach the boys that nothing is always black and white in our lives and there isn’t always just one way to achieve your goals that you want to achieve.
Emotions can factor in many money decisions. Emotions also can come into play when Money is part of the topic in a relationship. Especially when both people in the relationship has totally different views in their mind.
Pensions aren’t as common as they were back when my Dad was working at International Harvester. They made Farm Equipment there in Rock Island, IL. They had a Union there which my Dad was a Shop Steward for the Union. They also had a Pension and Health Care for life for Mom and Dad. Pretty good deal. I am going by what he told me I never read all the details of it.
Many people I have talked to said one of the things they worry about is running out of money during their retirement years. I have those worries also myself. The more studies that I read about and people I talk to that withdrew 4% of their retirement funds and it worked out for them gives me a calming feeling.
We get phone calls, emails and texts daily at our house of people trying to get our information or to scam us. Everything from someone in England that died and left us 8.5 million dollars to call this number right away or the IRS will be taking you to court.
Communication is so important in any relationship. When we have our monthly review meetings with our Spouse or significant other one it can be a stressful time when money is involved. Seems hard for some couples to be able to openly discuss money and finances.
During my working years I always paid for Disability Insurance to make sure I was covered. Back in the days I had heard many stories of people who had freak accidents and were out of work for quite a while and needed the Disability Insurance to help maintain their living expenses for their family.
