Are You Worried About a Recession?

Joe is someone we can all learn from (you know Joseph – the one with the multi-colored coat, he has a musical about him, and a few chapters in the number 1 best-selling book feature him).  In the years of prosperity, he saved for future times of economic downturn – he saved for the cycles in the economy that consistently repeat themselves.  We too have to move from a place of every time we receive a bonus, tax refund (what did you do with yours?), raise, etc. that we increase our lifestyle – we beginning eating out more, upgrading our vehicle, etc.  Instead, let’s transform our thinking so that we are investing/saving at least 10% or more of every dollar that comes into our hands.

Why?  To prepare for the unexpected!  With the reports of an economic recession, becoming a habitual saver (one good habit we can all cultivate) instead of a spender, can very well put us in a position that we don’t even feel the financial valleys.  Saving is especially vital if you are or want to be a homeowner/real estate investor/business owner so setup an automatic savings draft so that you don’t even have to think about if you saved this month or not.
