On this episode we will be taking about money, or more importantly how to maximize its growth potential through adopting sensible lifestyle and finance management planning strategies.
Whether you’re a first term apprentice, a seasoned carpenter or someone nearing retirement age it’s never too early or too late to learn how to better secure a solid financial future for yourself and your family.
To help us do this, I have invited, Patrick Town the Executive Director of Union Home Plus a Seattle based company dedicated to ensuring Washington state union employees have access to the safest, most cost-effective resources to buy, sell or finance their home.
Joining us as well is Johnny Flavin, owner, founder and principal advisor from Aspire Capitol, also based in Seattle. Johnny’s company is committed to helping individuals, plan, manage and work towards their financial goals.
As we know, a pre-pandemic boom in construction led many, especially those new to the trades, to develop a false sense of security when it came to steady employment and the seemingly never-ending stream of cash it provided.
This dream state changed quickly into a horrible nightmare for many, when they saw their hours slashed were laid off or even had their entire industry shut down, as in the case of our Trade Show brothers and sisters.
This recent experience illustrates how quickly circumstances can change and why being without a solid financial plan, which focuses on long, short, and mid-range budgeting goals is not an option.
This episode is packed full of simple and straight forward information to help you take ownership of your financial future and empower you to take action.
