2- Introduction to the FinancialVerse
Updated: Jan 15
Welcome to the FinancialVerse and free Moneysavers. Here I will post thoughts and ideas on current personal financial topics. I will also direct you to other sources I have seen that may be of help to you in your financial journey through the FinancialVerse of life.
Do you understand how money works? Have you achieved financial security for yourself and your family? Have you reached a point where you pay bills without thinking of whether you have enough in your bank account to cover the ATM withdrawal, check, or electronic payment? Do you have an up-to-date personal cash budget? Do you have the requisite insurance coverage in place to protect your family and property? Are financial issues not a daily part of your family discussions? Do you have enough savings to live the life you want in your older age? Do you have someone you can talk to about your money concerns? If the answer to most of these questions is no, you are failing in what I call the FinancialVerse - just like the majority of Americans.
It’s time to become better aware of where you are in your life’s financial journey and where you are headed. You should not fear this journey. It’s all about common sense. You can make it work but you must have a basic understanding and awareness of where you are and where you are headed.
I am here to help you by providing thoughts and ideas on how to find the financial security you desire. What is the financial story of your life? What chapter are you on? Just beginning? Are you halfway through? Creating the last chapters? If you could, would you like a chance to rewrite how your story has unfolded to date? Would you like to change the plot line? Or would you like to read ahead to see how the journey ends?
I can help you make your unwritten or unfinished story a more successful and less stressful journey. In my view, the most important financial goal for most people is to find their way to financial security. I am talking about living a relatively stress and anxiety free financial life. I am talking about knowing the key money decisions you will need to make and where to go to get help in making them. I am talking about having the financial resources to draw on when they are needed.
To help you, I am drawing on my over 30-years’ experience in the global financial services industry. I will offer you simple, proven ideas, and practical advice to improve your financial life. It will help you reduce the anxiety and stress that financial matters can cause.
