Biggest Challenge: Money
Response from DM:
Money! Wow, I could write a whole book to respond to that topic, but let me share with you my experience in one of the most personal matters you can ever discuss. Most people keep their financial matters very private. And for good reason—some people have been taken advantage of. But for the average person, money is a constant thought: will there be enough to pay bills, take care of personal expenses, and cover the needs of those you’re caring for?
In today's economy, money takes on an even more important consideration—will there be enough for my retirement, or for any long-term health care needs? The economy as we have known it is changing. We are not certain if the social services that are now available will be there in our future, or in our children's future. People are rethinking their long-term plans. I always say, "If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail". Be aware of your needs now, as well as your projected needs, to the best of your ability. “Plan and Save” are two old-fashioned values that have not gone out of style. Thank you for submitting this very thought-provoking topic.
