Reflections: Protect Your Lifestyle



That is the word that has and will continue to ruin many lives. The recession taught all of us money lessons. One of those lessons is to make sure you have multiple revenue sources. You should never allow a stranger to have 100% control over your life. Think about it. Your boss and/or clients can put an end to you paying your mortgage/rent, car payments, and buying groceries.
