Money on the side
Having money on the side no matter what your circumstances, is vital for freedom and independence. Many clients come to me, unhappy in their relationships/marriages yet fear leaving due to lack of financial means to support themselves. I have come to realise that wherever possible, it is important to have a separate saving account with spare money in it. To some, this may seem cynical but I just see it as being practical. Savings never go to waste anyhow and I have seen how beneficial money on the side can be when someone has had enough of a miserable relationship.
The amount of people I know who are stuck in unhappy circumstances purely due to financial constraints is startling and worrying at the same time. Having money on the side allows you stay with someone because you want to be with them, not because you need to stay out of lack of other options. What a sad place to be!
Plan for the future, care about your freedom of choice and independence.You may never need to money but it is prudent to have spare savings just in case. It will give you a sense of choice and confidence. Start saving now.
