nemployment is approaching levels we haven’t seen since the “Great Depression.” CNN reports 9.7% of the population is without work and many experts expect this number to climb to over 10% soon. Right now, many fear they’ll lose the ability to provide their families with the life to which they’ve grown accustom. While some see this as a type of financial “Doomsday,” others see opportunity. Finally, face to face with the reality - having a job is not the same as having security, they seek to take control of their financial future.
