Suze: Vicky, what do you want to buy?Vicky: Hi, Suze. I would like to buy an emergency food storage kit for me and my family.Suze: So for one year you want you want to spend $1,000 for a one-year supply. What do you think is going to happen that you're going to need that for one full year?Vicky: Well, there's been a lot of natural disasters have been happening, recently Sandy.
Suze: But for a year? A month, maybe two months if you're dramatic about it. But one full year, really?VIcky: One full year. $1,000 is actually for one person for one full year. This would feed my family probably three to four months and it's just my immediate family.Suze: All right. So it's $1,000 for just a few months to take care of everybody. Show me the money, my dear Vicky.Vicky: Well, I take home $5,419 a month. My expenses are $4,877 a month of which $1,550 go to savings. My debt, I have $41,000 on a car loan at .9% and 14,000 on a student loan at 2.47%. Savings have $46,000 liquid, $43,000 in investments and $58,000 in retirement.Suze: And you're 31 years of age. Correct?Vicky: Correct.Suze: So approved!Vicky: Oh, yay!Suze: And it's not only approved. Here is the truth, even if you didn't have any money and even if your figures were a lot lower you, of course, should have emergency things like this. You should have batteries, flashlights, radios, extra water, and extra food. Every house should have it because you never know so this is a need this is not a want. So girlfriend, go and get it.
And that is why I LOVE this job. I have to opportunity to help people. I teach them how to become more prepared and more self reliant. I teach people how to build up their own Home Store. I am grateful that I am able to do this for my family, my friends and so many that are now new friends.
