Why You Need To Rethink Life Insurance And What You Should Know About It

This year the Global Pandemic (COVID-19) has raised awareness about how uncertain life can be. We are no longer sure about how long we can count on things that made us so strong. Simple things such as the freedom to go out; our dependency on security infrastructures; the mere feeling that we were covered for life. 

In the most tragic cases and the most unexpected turn of events, we may even have to deal with the loss of a loved one. When the main breadwinner of the household is no longer around, you are forced to rethink your options in life.

According to LIMRA, almost 50% of Americans lack life insurance in the household or don't have enough coverage for contingencies. Statistics show 1 in 3 families have expressed their inability to afford a life without the support of the main wage earner. The pandemic has the potential to worsen this ratio as more and more people fall prey to employment losses and economic challenges. 

 

How can life insurance provide security and...

7 things I stopped doing during the pandemic

I was thinking about you today, and I am imagining that due to everything that is happening right now, you might start feeling the financial pressure.

 A lot of people have lost their jobs or temporarily not working. Others, their income has been reduced. However, others are striving, their income is going up, and they are helping a ton of people.  

 Maybe you have been affected directly or indirectly. But I want to share with you a few things that I stop doing to help me strive financially during these tough times. 

First, I stopped watching the news on T.V., and here is why. It is essential to stay informed; however, viewing the report on the television has proven over and over to lower your vibrational state.  

Having a low vibration, especially after watching the constant negative news, is going to impact negatively everything else you do, as this state will last much longer than the time you spend on the T.V.  

I have opted to...

Is Life Insurance an Expense?

A lot of times, we see this as a bill, and we might start thinking about all the other things that we could be doing with that money. Or we rather avoid altogether by not getting one. But is having life insurance an expense?

When you buy life insurance, you might feel that it is a burden and an expense. And therefore, we see it as something negative instead of something positive. A lot of times, we associate negative emotions with life insurance. Perhaps it is because it makes us think about death instead of life.  

However, it is a matter of the perception that we have about it.  It might feel like an expense because you do not see immediate benefits. 

But life insurance is peace of mind policy.  These days, it is not just to protect your loved ones if you pass away, but also to protect you if something unexpected happens and you are still alive. 

Also, many life insurances are a great tool to increase your wealth and to use as income in the...

7 Strategies To Start Growing Your Assets

It’s been said that to become a millionaire, you need at least seven streams of income.  Now, you don’t create all at the same time.  Focus on one at a time, and once that one is working, then work on the next one.  

We all want to create sexy assets, but for us to succeed at building those assets, there is an underlying problem that we need to resolve. We have to work on our perspective on money and finances.  

Here are 7 strategies that will help you grow your assets:

  1. Mindset- Money problems are mindset problems; there is a disconnect between our mindset and our bank accounts. Money problems are not necessarily more money sometimes is also where are our priorities at this time, is it in the instant gratification?  I always say delay gratification and embrace anticipation. 

  2. Create a spending plan- a spending plan is not just a budget, this is not what we are here about, we are here to be intentional about where we put our...

Celebrating International Women's Day

We are celebrating how far we have come! Happy International Women's Day!

It is my mission to inspire women to see that they are capable of making history.

As women, we learn differently than men, and also we have different challenges too.

We can take a more active role in the world. But there are a few things that we need to do to achieve that. Today I am going to go over a few things that we can do to be intentional about it.

It starts with Us
Do you want your dream lifestyle to reach the Bank? Then it starts with you. Be honest about your money habits, your money mindset, and your behaviors. When we transform our relationship with money, we show up differently in business.

We show up more powerfully and with more confidence in the marketplace. We know our worth, and we will fight for it if necessary.

Let's talk about money
Can you believe that over 60% of women rather talk about death than talking about money? Money shouldn't be taboo. It is time to talk about money with your...

The 5 Loves Languages of Money

It is usual for couples to have disagreements. No matter how much they could love each other, they came from different backgrounds, and they were raised in different environments.

Our parents transferred to us their values, and our teachers taught us what they knew. But most probably didn't teach about money and finances.

We all have had different experiences with money.

According to Money Magazine, 70% of married couples argue about money, more than sex, chores, time spent together, dinner, and snoring.

These things didn't start after the marriage, but even before the couples met.

This is why we should learn the 5 love languages of money.

Here they are:

Words of affirmation - what you send out to the universe will come back to you. Whatever you are saying about money affirms your true desires. So be careful about what you are saying about money in your daily life. Understand the power of words.

Quality time- You should spend some time at least once a month, preferably once a week,...

Five Small Financial Goals To Make In 2020

They are many financial goals that you could have, but these small financial goals will set you up for a great start in 2020

Unfortunately, most people break one of their New Year Resolution by January 15th. There are many reasons why this happens.  People set unattainable expectations when they set those resolutions.  Also,  they don't make a plan on how they are going to achieve them.  They don't have a deadline, making the goal too far in the future. And they are not specific on the resolutions.  

This is why, I don't make resolutions, but set goals.  I also, add or adjust the goals based on what I want to accomplish, and create a plan, and set a deadline on how and by when I am going to attain the goal.  

One of the most important goals that you sure carefully set is financial goals.  Why? Because this will affect the rest of the goals, and will highly affect your future. 

Therefore, here are 5 financial goals that you...
