I just posted on Christian Business CrossRoads an article called Funding Financial Margin. Having financial margin basically means that you are not filled with anxiety each week trying to figure out how you will pay all of your bills each month. Additionally, you aren’t living in fear that if something happens to your job, your family won’t survive!
Do we ever have perfect financial margin? Maybe for a day or two.
If you are like me, even if you have had a good margin in the past, seasons continue to change.
Kids driving….going to college…
Home repairs needed…
Join me over on Christian Business CrossRoads to see how I am battling Funding Financial Margin during this season of life!
Here is the beginning:
Lack of money is the leading stressor among families. 58% of married men, 66% of married women, 87% of single women, list finances as the top stressor in their family.
Most people in America, spend more than they make each month, are in debt, and have little or no savings. This is parallel to a time of high unemployment, increased cost of education, and little or no pay increases. This combination leaves absolutely no financial margin.
Once we get into a hole it makes it more difficult to get out, but it can be done!
