Don't Get Fired!

I recently read an article on titled "Can Financial Worries Get You Fired?"  It pointed out that in a Human Resource survey that employees were not able to concentrate on their daily job activities because they were constantly worrying about monthly bills.  They mentioned mortgages and credit card debt, but the most revealing was that there are many Americans wondering how they are going to keep the lights on or even put food on the table.  When you get to the point where you have to figure out how to feed yourself or your family it is understandable that you can't concentrate on the task at hand which is working.

I have been in the position of worrying about debt while at work and I can testify first hand not much work gets done.  In the article there are some tips to overcome this dilemma.  My advice to those facing financial worry is to seek out books that talk about getting out of debt the old fashion way (spending less than you make).  Steer clear of the books that hint that getting out of debt will be fast and easy because it won't.  In fact it will take time and it will take a lot of will power, but it will be well worth it in the end.  Also search for FREE classes or workshops that teach financial literacy.  I am actually starting a free class on the 21st that will go over the steps to becoming debt free, so trust me the classes are out there.  Whatever it is just do something and tell your financial situation I will no longer be a victim, but a victor!

Does financial worrying effect you in the workplace?
