Financial Matters: I receive so many questions about how to deal with financial matters. I know how devastating it can be to face financial hardships, but you don’t have to go through it alone. When dealing with various financial obstacles from foreclosure to trying to sell your home or paying off the balances for your credit card, it is important to have a team that is there to support you and allow you to see ALL of your financial possibilities.
A financial team can give you a breath of fresh air as you share your financial burdens, deepest questions, and concerns in confidentiality with trusted professionals. From sharing your financial problems and listing your possible solutions, to implementing them to achieve your financial goals, they can allow you to piece together your financial future and show you that you are not stuck in this hardship alone. Instead, a team can aid you in your transition to financial freedom by providing you a non-judgmental and safe space.
What’s more? Depending on the problem you are facing, you will need an expert specialized in the area you are seeking help. For instance, if you are struggling with how to finance a new home, you’ll want to make sure you can consult with someone on your team that has familiarity and experience in this area.
So, just how do you get started with your team? Make sure you evaluate what you need help with so you and your team can begin implementing a plan of action. Share your short-term and long-term goals so your team is aware of the end results they should be aiming for.
This will unite your team to a shared goal. Remember, without visions or goals your team lacks direction. Furthermore, you can keep track of your progress through the successful achievements of your goals.
But wait, just why do you need a team? A financial team can help to empower and support you to achieving and implementing your goals. You’ll gain outside insight into your problems allowing for diverse viewpoints. Your team may call attention to bad spending or investment habits that you weren’t aware of before! Additionally, throughout the initial planning process you and your team will be bouncing ideas off of each other – which is great!
This will allow you to develop a new of thinking and handling your problems that you may have never thought of before. Your team may also challenge your ideas and challenge you to be successful. This may be through implementing a savings plan, achieving a credit score, or being debt free within a year. Whatever the goal, you now have a team that you can lean on and that fully has your support.
You should also know that your team isn’t just for the now problems, it’s for the what-ifs, the future, and the unexpected finance issues that may arise. Unfortunately, unexpected things may happen and detour the plan you and your team created, however your team will be there to help you get back on track to your goals. You’ll feel at ease and secure by having a resource you can call when things aren’t going as planned. You can start preparing in advance by having an emergency financial plan for the unexpected future. This way you are always one step ahead.
