Welcome to the Enjoy More 30s Family Finance

Voiceover Audio:

podcast. The only podcast dedicated to making life more

Voiceover Audio:

enjoyable for young families by hitting on the financial topics

Voiceover Audio:

that tend to weigh on us, stress us out, and distract our focus

Voiceover Audio:

from simply enjoying life.

Joseph Okaly:

Hello, welcome once again to the Enjoy More 30s

Joseph Okaly:

Family Finance podcast, and our series The Financial Parables of

Joseph Okaly:

Your Life. As you, I would assume, are accustomed to by now

Joseph Okaly:

if you've been listening each and every week, what I'm doing

Joseph Okaly:

is going through a parable, fable, a short story of some

Joseph Okaly:

kind or another that you're probably familiar with because

Joseph Okaly:

stories are so powerful. They're a great way to remember really

Joseph Okaly:

important concepts in a simple way. So as always, before I

Joseph Okaly:

begin, please share please like please leave reviews. I'd love

Joseph Okaly:

to reach and help as many young families as I can out there that

Joseph Okaly:

are probably very much like you.

Joseph Okaly:

So today please join me for our story, The Wild Boar and the

Joseph Okaly:

Fox. A wild boar was sharpening his tusks busily against the

Joseph Okaly:

stump of a tree when a fox happened by. Now the fox was

Joseph Okaly:

always looking for a chance to make fun of his neighbors. So he

Joseph Okaly:

made a great show of looking anxiously about, dancing near

Joseph Okaly:

and far as if in fear of some hidden enemy. But the boar kept

Joseph Okaly:

right on with his work. "Why are you doing that?" asked the fox

Joseph Okaly:

at last with a sly grin. "There isn't any danger that I can

Joseph Okaly:

see." "True enough", replied the boar. "But when danger does

Joseph Okaly:

come, there will not be time for such work as this. My weapons

Joseph Okaly:

will have to be ready for use then, or I shall suffer for it."

Joseph Okaly:

Danger doesn't let us know that it's coming in advance. A

Joseph Okaly:

crystal ball would help all of us navigate better if it

Joseph Okaly:

existed. I know I could really do a great job of helping people

Joseph Okaly:

enjoy every single piece 100% of the wealth that they built up if

Joseph Okaly:

I had one. But I do not as I don't think you do either. So

Joseph Okaly:

planning is what we can do to sharpen our tusks just like the

Joseph Okaly:

boar. Will we have enough for college? Let's plan to see what

Joseph Okaly:

path you're on. What if they don't go to college? We can use

Joseph Okaly:

a more flexible account if that's a concern. What if

Joseph Okaly:

something happens to me? We know how much money your spouse would

Joseph Okaly:

need and we now have insurance to cover it. You're all good.

Joseph Okaly:

What if I'm not on track to ever retire? Your plan shows you are

Joseph Okaly:

actually ahead of schedule. Would you like to retire early

Joseph Okaly:

or would you like to take more vacations with your family and

Joseph Okaly:

retire at your original goal age? When we know what would

Joseph Okaly:

happen if, if this, if that, then we feel better. The tusks

Joseph Okaly:

of our plan, they're sharp. If you worry about any financial

Joseph Okaly:

"what would happen ifs" in your own life, then your plan is

Joseph Okaly:

still in need of some sharpening. If you still have

Joseph Okaly:

questions if you're not quite sure of any of those what ifs

Joseph Okaly:

and you're concerned about what would happen in a certain

Joseph Okaly:

scenario, there is room to get those tusks just a little bit

Joseph Okaly:

sharper.

Joseph Okaly:

Thanks for tuning in today and join us for next week's story,

Joseph Okaly:

The Carpenter's Stool. I hope you enjoyed today's story.

Please remember to review and share for others. And if you

Joseph Okaly:

need any help, don't hesitate in reaching out. I probably have

Joseph Okaly:

helped someone just like you. Until next week. Thanks for

Joseph Okaly:

Joseph Okaly:
