Get ready as we learn from Jennifer Maggio tips of surviving financial crisis!


  1. Create a financial plan that fits your needs. Determine whether you need to increase your income or cut back in expenses or both. Write your plan down.
  2. Financial crises happen more often than anyone wants to admit.  Finding help from others is beneficial, as well as learning how to overcome it.  Check out this website for more advice and information about surviving financial crisis.
