Ken grew up in a rural based environment, and lived first hand what happens when you don’t properly plan and how it impacts a family. Farming is controlled by many unpredictable factors.
As a child Ken experienced what it was like to have no food on the table, because cashflow was not coming in on the farm. He also saw first hand what lack of planning can do, such as taking on debt for no reason – not knowing how to pay it back and having virtually no retirement savings. The impact and snowball effect keeps building and is hard to break away from.
With lack of planning, Ken also experienced what disaster looks like. After his father having a heart attack and no insurance to provide cash flow, and the ability to not work with no income during this time – the financial and mental stress toll it took on him and the family is one that no one should experience.
This is why Protect Your Finances was created. To help families just like yours feel confident and secure in their ability to handle all of life’s unplanned events. We look forward to helping you and your family with your financial journey!
