With high inflation, rising interest rates, falling portfolios and a looming recession, consumers everywhere are struggling with their finances. Car loans have stretched to 96 months, 55% of us carry a credit card balance and 64% of us are living paycheck to paycheck. And those issues continue up the economic levels. The Motley Fool recently reported that 1/3 of $250K earners are also living from one paycheck to the next.
For the recently divorced all of those problems are twice as bad. Half the cashflow, half the assets, a big legal bill and a missing house.
Traditional financial planning suggests saving 10%, giving up things you love and doing detailed monthly budgeting. But for the divorced community, there may no longer be 10% left to save. They already gave up something they used to love and the skills to do the monthly budgeting may have left along with half the furniture.
In this session, Gordon Stein offers some fresh thinking on how to help your divorced clients free up more cashflow with minimal effort and minimal sacrifice. In fact, he lights a path where they can enjoy a wonderful lifestyle now and prepare for a rich retirement. His talk is based on his book, Cashflow Cookbook, which offers ideas to free up cashflow in every area of spend from housing and food to transportation and household and even lifestyle and financial. His book details a remarkable $13,000 of monthly savings ideas. Using his techniques, a typical mass affluent client can free up $1,000 - $2,000 for incremental investing, debt pay down or just making ends meet.
