Wait ‘Til I Get My Money Right: Do You Have a Plan B…and C?
So you paid your bills for the month, and though your bank account took a hit, you still have a little money in there to splurge on something–or so you think. So you buy those new shoes, or a new dress, or buy a round of drinks for your friends and don’t sweat it, because pay day is what, a week or so away? Well what happens when you haven’t handled all your business like you thought, and something comes up? Do you have a back-up plan to fix your finances? Do you have anything saved? Or will this be one of those times where the parentals get a call and you have to break the bad news to them–you’re going to need to borrow some money again this month.
So if this has happened to you, don’t you think it’s time you start prioritizing your spending and put some money away so you’ll always have a back-up plan? Our friends over at Black Enterprise agree. Writer Janell Hazelwood tells her story of not being prepared and why you need to get it together (as well as your money together) when you can so you don’t have to depend on anyone else. It’s a crippling feeling. To read the full story and get your money and mind right, click over to Blackenterprise.com.
