Let me share with you the best financial advice I ever received. It doesn't cost me anything to share this advice, because it's been given away for free for years, on the radio and on the internet. It's Dave Ramsey's 7 Baby Steps.
Take a look at the link before you read on.
Why am I talking about getting out of debt and saving on a blog about insurance? Because we don't get insurance just to have insurance. We get insurance because insurance protects us from some of the pitfalls we can stumble into as we try to baby-step our way into prosperity. Things like auto accidents, burglaries, unexpected operations, storm damage. These things all have two things in common:
1. You can't predict them.
2. You can insure against them.
On the path to financial well-being, most of us (and I'm right there with you) are toddlers. We're taking one small step at a time, and we're often stumbling. But the important thing is that we keep moving forward, even if it's just a tiny bit. Having the right insurance doesn't guarantee that you'll be sprinting up the road to wealth, but it does help to smooth out some of the more obvious potholes on the way.
