Life has a way of changing in a hurry. You think you have planned well and – boom – the unexpected happens. You believe that you have budgeted well for retirement and your health eats more of your money than you can. What you intended to spend on travel you spend on medicine, doctors and someone to help you do the basic things of life.

You finally get the job you always wanted and one month later they eliminate your job. You know you did not see that coming, but why didn’t the company know the job would only last for a month before they hired you. You had another offer that is no longer available that you turned down.
