This week was different. Typically as a money coach, I work with middle-income Canadians.
This week, I met with a group of people in recovery. I counted it a privilege.
I was there to talk about putting a financial life back together. Many in the room had once had a sound financial life, but the addiction had trashed everything. Everything.
We started talking about savings. And then they told me something that left me silenced. To a person, they now deliberately spent money as fast as it came, because they so desperately did not want the temptation there to return to their addiction.
The full scope of what they’ve got to deal with began to sink in. I had a few suggestions.. but if you had been in my place, what would you have offered?
