The Government Shutdown & You

We, as a nation have been experiencing this government shutdown and while most of us haven’t felt the impact of it, there are many that have. Navigating something that you have no control over is difficult and the uncertainty of it makes it that much more frustrating for those affected. This would be a great time to remind you of the importance of saving. Even if it’s something small, it can really help you out if you get into a pinch.

Most financial advisors will tell you that your savings should be enough to sustain you for at least six months. That may sound like a big number to some, but it’s important for you and your family to take steps towards making this a reality. Anything can happen to cause your funding to dry up and a lot of times, it’s unexpected. It can be an illness, company closure or in this case, a government shutdown. None of these things have much to do because of something you did or didn’t do, but it happens to many of us.

So, today, make an effort to get on the road to savings and build that nest egg so that when things beyond your control happen, you won’t be blindsided. Remember, I can help you get started by buy your gold, silver, platinum and palladium regardless of what it is or its condition.
