How many time have I heard: “I will do it when I can afford it.” When will you be able to afford it, whatever “it” is?
Creating wealth is a process. You will need resources on this journey. Resources like your health (if you get sick and cannot work, how will you earn an income?). The tools of your occupation, that could be a laptop, a cellphone. High value/cost items that you bought, such as a house and vehicles.
Protecting your wealth as you build it, means you need to look at insuring the risks:
- Insuring yourself against loss of income (without income you cannot afford anything, not even food!);
- Insuring your health – medical expenses can make you poor in the wink of an eye;
- Insuring the tools of your trade – like a laptop and cellphone;
- Insuring your high worth/cost items against the loss of capital that you put in – think house and car
|Cellphones are computers in our pockets and I cannot do my work without it. Let’s assume my cellphone costs R18 000. If I lose it, I want the same one or a better one. Insurance would cost R150 per month. Or I could use R18 000 from my savings to replace it. In my mind R150/month is cheaper!|
