I think everyone in the world can agree that life can be tough whenever you are struck with a financial burden. It happens to the best of us and unfortunately, it can be hard to recover from. One of our biggest financial struggles happened within a five-year span. My husband, who was in the pharma and medical sales industry, was laid off three times during that span. To make matters worse, we were actually building houses on the side and ended up getting stuck with two that did not sell. Not only did they not sell, but they didn’t sell for TWO YEARS! Of course, all of this was happening at the same time.
