Comes a comment from across the Interwebs… from a man:
“My Inlaws get called with a phone scam and because of my MILs feminist background she STILL gave the guy her banking info after i proved it was a scammer just because she “won’t let a man tell her what to do”
I can’t make this sh!t up…”
I’ve personally experienced something similar.
And… it’s kind of funny. By being contrarian for contrarian’s sake, or… by getting caught up in some kind of social justice bullcrap… some people make themselves easy targets for almost comical manipulation.
Which brings me to an interesting (or maybe pointless) observation about saving money:
Most people follow the crowd and are easily manipulated by financial entertainers, know-nothing ex-spurts, and lamestream media.
Whether it’s stuffing munny in a 401(k), blindly dumping cash into index funds (or even blindly putting money into cash value life insurance for that matter), or… not saving money at all.
It’s somewhat rare to find people who spend time actually thinking about the value of their own life, how much they’re worth, how to predictably grow a savings, how to protect their earning potential and savings against loss, what kind of legacy they want to leave when they die and… then pushing forward with long term goals to save up enough to become totally financially secure — save up enough that working a full-time job or actively running a business is *optional*.
Some people call this “financial freedom” or “financial independence.”
I call it financial security because that’s what it gives you.
Anyway, once you reach this phase in life, in a practical sense, it’s impossible to fail.
But why should you care about that?
Perhaps you shouldn’t, unless… you want that kind of security.
Anyway, to start building your financial security plan, join my email list and I’ll show you how it’s done.
