Did you know that a lack of disability insurance is a growing crisis for millions of working Americans? According to the National Safety Council, 498 Americans became disabled in the last ten minutes. For most working people, human capital is their most valuable asset, and anything that interrupts their earnings can wreak havoc on one’s financial plan. Read on to learn more about the underestimated power of disability insurance and why it is so important to have sufficient protection.

A Wealthy Mindset

With St. Patrick’s Day on the horizon this weekend, we’re reminded of the beautiful symbolism of the traditional Irish icon, the shamrock. According to tradition, the four leaves of a shamrock represent love, respect, wealth, and health. These characteristics resonate with us for many reasons, especially their alignment with the Live Big philosophy. In this vein, we share our thoughts on the differences between being rich and being wealthy, and discuss how you can have a wealthy mindset. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
