Keep Your Dreams Alive

The financial fear in this country is palatable.  We see it all over.

Our dreams may have been deferred but they don’t have to die because of the recession. In changing and challenging times, I believe it is necessary to think differently, If you are willing to do different things and do some of the old things differently, you will be able to go beyond surviving and get to a place of thriving.

It may take awhile before your 401(k) rebounds. You may not close that deal that you have been working on, and it’s difficult to hold on with all the financial challenges you are facing.  So then what?  Do not  let these financial setbacks wipe you out mentally.
