Deanna Brown CFP has almost 20 years in the investment and financial services industry. And if we ever needed this education, this would be the time. We might be discovering our relationship with money is different and we might make some good, significant changes going forward, Deanna suggests. She stresses the need to communicate with banks and mortgage holders, landlords–make our case known. She notes that if we have an IRA or 401K that it’s a good source for a loan, with lessened ‘penalties’ than was the case previously. But important to communicate directly with our Investor. Apply for all available options for unemployment funds. And in some cases we may find that we are not really spending to the degree we had in the past, and find ways that we can save $$, and invest.
