Who knew that having a financial strategy in place has the potential to improve your love life?
Here’s the proof: 84% of Americans think a romantic relationship is not only stronger but also more satisfying when it’s financially stable.*
So what does it mean to be financially stable and ready for the Big Financial Talk?
Here’s a simple 5-point checklist to let you know if you’re on the right track:
- You aren’t worried about your financial situation.
- You know how to budget and are debt-free.
- You pay bills on time – better yet, you pay bills ahead of time.
- You have adequate insurance coverage in case of trouble.
- You’re saving enough for retirement.
If you didn’t answer ‘yes’ to all of these, don’t worry! Chances are this checklist won’t come up on the first date – or the second or the third. But when you have the “money talk” with someone you’ve been seeing for a while, wouldn’t it be great to know that you bring your own financial stability to the relationship? It’s clearly a bonus – Remember the stats up there?
Everyone could use a little help on their way to financial stability and independence. Contact me today, and together we can work on a strategy that could strengthen your peace of mind – and perhaps your love life!
