You're about to discover how an average bloke, turned what seemed like complete and utter tragedy and a future of gloom and doom, into a life of joy, security and peace of mind I had only imagined.
If you're anything like me, you probably have been a good employee for the majority of your life. You've shown up for work, did a good job and at some point, you began to calculate how much money you would need to have saved up to maintain your lifestyle, and avoid becoming a burden to others in the future.
You're looking down the line and wondering how you are going to be able to afford to retire.
According to financial experts, working class people have less than £500 in their savings account and over 56% don't even have enough money saved up for retirement.
Looking ahead, I knew I needed a contingency plan for my 'After 60' Golden Years or else I would end up like the majority, depending on their children or the government for financial help.
I didn't want this to be me!
So I invested in the Real Estate market hoping this would be the answer to my prayers for a secure financial future, only to lose all 4 properties during the infamous Market Crash of 2008-2009. As you can imagine, a financial hit like this created additional stress on my health and in the midst of all this mis-fortune, I was also dealing with personal health issues resulting from the stress of this overwhelming loss.
