June was nothing like it was last year for sure. So many negative things going on in our world and it is hard to always tell what is true or fake news.
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.
Maximizing your 401K each year after we are Debt Free is one of the rules and action steps that we teach our boys for them to head towards their Financial Freedom goals. It is Action Step 9 in our 10 action steps to Financial Freedom.
Coronavirus hurt the Business world even more in May even though all the States started reopening in some way or another. I have heard of many small businesses that have had to file bankruptcy and close their doors for good. A lot of dreams and retirement savings lost during the last few months. It is sad.
May is over and Logan is officially graduated High School. Next, he is off to the Navy in September. We had a fun Graduation Party for Logan and it was good to see our friends and the boy’s friends.
Some people ask the question if they would be better off investing in their own IRA rather than investing in their companies 401K plan? If your company doesn’t have a matching 401K plan then maybe that is for you. But what I see is that a lot of people lack discipline. What is nice about a company 401K is that it is coming out of their paychecks without any effort from them. They can just get used to seeing what their net check amount is to live on.
Coronavirus in April hurt the Business world. Pretty much every state was shut down. Now in May 35 states have some plans on reopening slowly and 15 are staying shut down longer. In Arizona they have us being shutdown till May 15th.
April is over and one of the worst months of my life. On my Birthday my Mom went to Heaven to be with my Dad. She got coronavirus about 7 days before she lost her battle. She will be deeply missed from our family plus many other people that she touched their lives.
What Passive Income means to you may mean something different to others. Darlene and myself want to have many streams of passive income built up for our Financial Freedom plans. Passive Income if you don’t know is Income that you make with out going to work or doing work to get paid. Yes, maybe you did work once to do it but then after you do it you could be making money off that constantly the rest of your life.
March is over but upcoming months may not be any better. WOW, we are living in a wild time right now. I know our boys should remember this the rest of their lives. March again wasn’t a fun month if you have money in the Stock Market or in Digital Currency. As you know the Coronavirus is growing and it hurting people, businesses and our economy. For us we may not like seeing the stock market numbers but we know we are in for the long haul and we feel the stock market will come back sometime down the road and be even stronger than it was.
