There is nothing quite like financial pressure. It has the ability to impact nearly every moment of our days. Some people are so terrorized by their money problems they develop health challenges or see relationships strained or destroyed. It’s sad, but especially in an economy like this one, it’s not that uncommon.
Financial education and intelligence can help. One of the biggest shocks to most people is that “more money” is not always the answer. In fact, I have seen people who have terrible financial situations come into some money and simply make an even bigger mess than before. More money didn’t help them at all, but instead became a megaphone to demonstrate how bad they were at handling money in the first place.
This is where the LIFE materials come in. Sure, there is a business aspect to LIFE wherein people can own and operate their own business and make “more,” but this “more” won’t help unless better money management is also learned. The highly popular “Maximize Your Finances” pack is the flagship of the products aimed at increasing financial literacy and understanding. It contains a book and four CDs that go straight to the heart of financial problems and how to eliminate them. Another helpful product, which takes a look at finances from a loftier perch, is the “Today’s Economy and Your Money” pack, featuring four CDs that cover everything from inflation to national deficits. These materials are the result of years of experience by several business owners, entrepreneurs, investors, and authors (Orrin Woodward, Claude Hamilton, Tim Marks, and George S. Clayson, to name a few). More important than the credentials of the speakers/writers are the results this information has produced in the lives of people. Just last week I was in conversation with a man who told me he and his wife had gotten completely out of debt by following the budget guidelines from the “Maximize Your Finances” pack. While no one can make any promises, it seems pretty obvious that better information, when properly applied, leads to better results.
I am not belittling the hardship of a job loss, injury, or other type of financial calamity. But we are all forced to face our circumstances as they are. We can’t do anything about the past, but we CAN do something about the future. Armed with better information, paired with discipline and grit, it is possible to win financially, and in many cases, it begins with the right information.
