This meetup is about educating and sharing knowledge on 'Saving your Future". It is important to have a bright financial future and leave a legacy for our children and our children's children. 33%, or more than 77 million, of Americans don’t pay their bills on time. 39% carry credit card debt from month to month. Only 59% of adults say they have savings. Worse, more than half now think it’s acceptable to default on their mortgage if they can’t afford to pay it. Most of us don’t wait to become a statistic to know that we’re in trouble. These problems are all around us. They happen to our own family and our friends’ families. It’s ironic that we live in one of the wealthiest countries in the world, but we always have money problems. We can work hard all our lives but retire poor. We do so much to raise our kids just to see them finish college with a lot of debt. Debt becomes a way of life We use credit cards every day and don’t always understand all the hidden charges. We buy insurance policies and stick them in a file cabinet. We contribute to our 401k or RRSP and hope someone will take care of it. We all want to have a comfortable retirement, but few have a plan. We may be active spenders but passive savers. It’s possible that we don’t know what we don’t know? This meet up will allow us to learn from each other and explore ways to save our financial future.
