Do you feel discouraged by how long it will take you to meet your financial goal? Or do you want to save for the future, but feel strapped in the present? Whatever your situation, you will likely benefit from adding something to your life: a second career.
You may be amazed, and relieved, to see how well a second career accelerates your savings. Here are four things the income from a second career can help you save for:
- Security: No need to worry about accidents or emergencies stripping away your savings; the extra money you earn with a second career can go toward an emergency fund, which keeps you covered in case of unemployment or sudden expense. So breathe easy!
- Independence: A second career can be what finally gets you out of debt. The more you’re able to save, the less likely you’ll have to rely on credit cards and loans in an emergency. You’ll be able to afford to travel when you want, or even go back to school.
- A Home: A down payment on a home can be five, ten, twenty percent or more of the house’s purchase price. That, combined with many other costs associated with not only buying a home but also maintaining it, might make the extra income from a second career look more appealing than ever.
- Retirement: With market risk, inflation, and the continual rise in life expectancy, the number of retirement years we’ll need to fund can feel more and more daunting. The income from a second career can help you save and invest at a rate that will keep you feeling secure about your future.
While it can take time to adjust to working two careers, the contributions to your financial security will last your entire life. To learn more about how to improve your financial life and embark on a second career, visit Syncis at http://www.syncis.com/associates/.
