My video yesterday “What Could Go Wrong?” had me thinking about my own financial preparedness. You see, each of us has a crucible moment, one where life as we know it will never be the same. These moments come in various forms and at different times in our lives. Some are hardly noticed until hindsight reminds us we had one; and other times, we get the big ones that hit us square between the eyes, when we least expect it and always when we least want it. I should know, because I’ve had my share, including 2 1/2 years ago when I discovered I had thyroid cancer, which eventually led to the company I was working for relieving me of my airline pilot duties. This was a blow to me, and left my financial future feeling a little uncertain. But just like in the airline industry, having the right guidance system, a Financial GPS, made me realize all was not lost.
Turn On Your Financial GPS
There is a certain irony on how I wound up figuring out where we were financially. One might think they are bullet proof working for a company that was experiencing a severe shortage of trained aircrew. Let me tell you, after ten years of doubt and wonder, that would have proven a fool’s errand. It was these years of uncertainty that finally forced my wife and I to take a deep dive into our finances and ultimately take action to protect ourselves against the big bad wolf that could eventually come knocking on the door.
Here is what we did:
Activating your Financial GPS starts by knowing where you are, and one of the tools that helped me find where I was at was the ‘Know Your Score' assessment. I highly encourage everyone to ‘Know Your Score’ by visiting my website (https://colinforrest.prepareyourlegacy.com) and taking the assessment. It’s free, will take only 10 minutes of your time, and it will initialize your financial GPS
To Your Financial Preparedness!
