Do You Need a Financial Do-Over?
Have you ever imagined experiencing a life do-over? Or at least a do-over in your financial life?
The idea is that if you are without a job or living in an environment where you are struggling to survive financially, there are places that present enhanced opportunities for change. But a do-over may require drastic action on your part. This means getting the heck out of Dodge and into a place that gives you a fighting chance.
One of the do-over destinations featured in the article is Alaska. For many, this is an exotic place to be visited on a cruise ship. But for others, it is a land of substantial opportunity.
Texas – another do-over destination – I can see that. The states in the central plains – Nebraska and Oklahoma – are also candidates. These states may lack charisma but charisma doesn’t put money in the bank. Las Vegas, California, and Florida had charisma. What good is that now?
If were the head of struggling family and living somewhere with little hope for the future, I’d be considering a financial do-over. Even if it involved Mr. U-Haul.
If this idea appeals to you, don’t overlook the slide show presenting 20 different do-over cities to consider. There are at least two cities on that list that I would cross-off immediately (Washington, D.C. and Rochester, N.Y.) but that is really a matter of personal preference.
Would you ever consider relocating to re-start your financial life?
