Thanks Lynn; I'm definitely posting this one to TABI, because I think blind people in particular, lack a sense of control of their financial lives, often because they live on a relatively small amount of social security benefits. While this talk may be on investments, and you may feel you aren't ready for investments, I'm sure there will also be additional financial information that everyone can benefit from. And of course, just doing something, anything, which impacts your financial future tends to make you feel more in control, which in turn leads you to take control and do better. I hope everyone who feels like they could use more money will consider listening to this broadcast; making a commitment to themselves that it will be the first step towards finding ways to improve their own financial situation. If there is interest after this broadcast, I'd be glad to setup a regular TeamTalk meeting for those who wish to discuss financial matters of any type, and at any level. There is something that every person can find to do to improve their situation, the trick is being willing to go looking.
