3 STEPS TO IMPROVE YOUR FINANCIAL RESILIENCE
Financial resilience is beneficial to our peace of mind. Even if we have only been able to put up
a meager amount of savings. I am always searching for strategies to improve my financial
resilience, because it tends to reduce tension in relationships during difficult economic times,
much like today.
So, here are some basic concepts that you can implement starting today to improve your
Step 1 Savings Plan = Cash On Hand
Start a savings plan. I like to say, “Pay Yourself Second.” Now, I know what you are thinking,
Hey, isn’t that supposed to be pay yourself first? Well traditionally it is, but as you will learn
when we cover the basic concepts of Spiritual resilience, we consider Charitable Giving as our
First Responsibility. Start small if you must but start right away. We feel that our basic savings
goal should be 10% of our earnings, but do not get concerned if that is not possible. Just begin
with what you can and build up as you are able.
Step 2 Diversify Your Savings
Gone are the days of parking our hard-earned savings in a savings account or a bank certificate
of deposit and collecting a nice return while still having fairly liquid access to our savings in
times of need. Sadly, gone are the days of keeping savings in one instrument. For most people
in the US that savings instrument is the US Dollar. It is unfortunate that the currency managers
at the Federal Reserve have been so careless with our currency, but that is irrelevant to us

reduce risk to the lost of purchasing power, that is your ability to get the goods and services
that you expect, of your savings. You might ask, how do we diversify our savings? Some options
may include commodities such as gold and silver or possibly Bitcoin. There may even be a place
for some foreign currency holdings, especially of nations with responsible and conservative
Step 3 Explore Options of Increased Income
Of course, who doesn’t want a simple way to increase our income. The internet and powerful
mobile devices have opened a whole new universe of opportunities to explore. There are many
internet marketing and affiliate opportunities to explore.
Also, the gig economy has opened up other opportunities for those who are willing to drive
others around, run deliveries, or provide a service to others such as website creation or
One final choice may be to just be to pick up any available overtime at your current
employment, or perhaps take on a second job to establish your savings pool.
So, there you have it, 3 basic steps to vastly improve your financial resilience and provide you
with peace of mind that you might not otherwise have in a time of instability or uncertainty. Of
course, none of this will improve your peace of mind if you do not have it in place prior to
instability. So, don’t waste any time implementing these strategies right away.
