Years ago, I heard the late Zig Ziglar make the case that money is like oxygen. If you don’t have it, there just aren’t a lot of substitutes.
Ziglar warned of the dangers of building wealth for wealth’s sake — but he (like me) was a believer that if you manage your finances well, it gives your family and you many more choices — and opportunity to influence.
Since financial management is a area where a lot of us struggle, I knew that hearing from Better Off podcast host Jill Schlesinger would benefit a lot of us.
Jill and I discussed when you need a financial professional, the best way to handle life insurance, how to handle the recent credit agency hack, and much more. All of the resources we mentioned are detailed in this week’s show notes.
