Have you ever recieved advice from friends and family on financial decisions you had to make? Have you felt so confident about what you are doing with your money that you see mistakes as just something that goes wrong from time to time?

Your financial security is as important as anything else you have in your life. Most people who experience car trouble and receive an extremely high estimate will look for a second or sometimes a third or fourth opinion. They have a desire to reduce or save as much as possible.

I can go on and on about issues and situations that will create the need for a second opinion. Your finances, your financial decisions should always be made with an expert second opinion. It is important to your ability to have a secure and strong financial life. The alternative is that you continue to hear things that sound like the best option. You may know someone who has experienced some rough times but they seem to be doing well now.

I recommend you get a different perspective on all of your financial decisions.  There may be good arguments for several different options; getting a second opinion can be a good way to hear some of them. A second opinion serves as a general quality check – to make sure you’re really getting the most up to date, most effective advice for your household.

Before you just go with the first option read the story below.

A Second Opinion Story:

The doctor said, “Harry, the good news is I can cure your headaches. The bad news is that it will require castration.
“You have a very rare condition, which causes your testicles to press on your spine and the pressure creates one huge headache. The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles.”

I was shocked and depressed. I wondered if I had anything to live for. I had no choice but to go under the knife. When I left the hospital, I was without a headache for the first time in 20 years, but I felt like I was missing an important part of myself. As I walked down the street, I realized that I felt like a different person. I could make a new beginning and live a new life.

I saw a men’s clothing store and thought, “That’s what I need…A new suit…” I entered the shop and told the salesman, “I’d like a new suit.”

The elderly tailor eyed me briefly and said, “Let’s see…size 44 long.” I laughed, “That’s right, how did you know?”
“Been in the business 60 years!” the tailor said.

I tried on the suit, it fit perfectly. As I admired myself in the mirror, the salesman asked, “how about a new shirt?”

I thought for a moment and then said, “Sure.”
The tailor eyed me and said, “Let’s see, 34 sleeves and 16 ½ neck.”

I was surprised, ”That’s right, how did you know?”
“Been in the business 60 years!”

I tried on the shirt and it fit perfectly. I walked comfortably around the shop and the salesman asked, “How about some new underwear?”

I thought for a moment and then said, “Sure.”
The tailor said, “Let’s see…size 36.”

I laughed, “Ah ha! I got you! I’ve worn a size 34 since I was 18 years old.”

The tailor shook his head, “You can’t wear a size 34. A size 34 would press your testicles up against the base of your spine and give you one huge headache.”

New Suit – $500
New Shirt – $52
New Underwear – $12
Second Opinion – PRICELESS
