Mrs. Whitfield gives us a little insider on Money Affairs.
1. Why should people get Life Insurance?
Life insurance is a way to protect your family from financial devastation when the unfortunate happens. It’s also the cheapest way to create generational wealth. Life insurance is designed to replace your income and protect your assets until you have built your own wealth.
2. Why is it important to have insurance on your home?
There are two sides to renters and homeowners insurance. The first reason is the obvious, for something major or catastrophic happening like a fire or a flood. However renters insurance can also protect you from things like robbery, theft, repairing items or even hotel stays if your home is damaged or uninhabitable.
3. What investments do you recommend?
Generally most clients need 3-6 months of monthly expenses for emergencies in a money market or bank account. Then you will need a long term investment account that you would use for your goals and dreams; buying a home, vacations or buying a car. Last but not least, some kind of retirement plan based on needs and income.
4. How has being an advisor changed your life?
Becoming an advisor has changed my life in so many ways. I believe the two biggest impacts were; giving me freedom to run my business around me and my children’s lives instead of a 9-5 schedule. Then giving me the capability to close the wealth gap in my community and provide knowledge on how to take steps towards financial freedom.
