I used to work as a paramedic in BC.  I also trained to be a fire fighter. The training I received taught me one very important lesson, every minute counts during an emergency.

I was also a financial planner and what this taught me was that in order to meet your financial goals you must plan, be disciplined and maintain focus. 

The saying, ‘If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail’ applies equally well to financial planning as it does with providing emergency services.  

Essential questions we need to ask ourselves are:

-Why spend money trying to fix a problem when you can prevent the problem in the first place? 

-Why risk confusion and economic turmoil during a pandemic when you can reduce those risks? 

-Why would we risk someone’s safety when we can eliminate many of those risks?

The answer to all these questions is that you do not spend money fixing preventable problems, you do not create needless confusion or uncertainty and you do not risk someone safety.  I will be your champion if safety is important to you!
