Accepting personal responsibility for your cash is the way to make sure it is handled well. A continuation of a conversation about a condominium move started on the Clark Howard Show. And as usual, providing personal finance advice, real estate advice and consumer advice on the Ilyce Glink Show July 8, 2012 on WSB Radio.
Today’s show is somewhat of a continuation of a cash conversation I started when I filled in for Clark Howard on the 4th of July. It’s all about accepting personal responsibility.
My husband Sam is moving out of his office, a condominium we have owned and he has used for 12-13 years. We hired movers to handle most of the big pieces though we have done most of the grunt work ourselves.
But late Friday, the day before the move, the company scheduled to handle our belongings cancelled. They did try to find us another service but because it was last minute during a busy season, the only company they could secure has a dreadful reputation. This is not how we want to spend our hard earned cash. We got stuck. This is the way life works sometimes. You know what they say about the best paid plans…
People don’t normally move on Sundays but we had to. And because Sam and I pride ourselves on being resourceful, he spoke to the condominium building engineer. He had some friends that were available and interested in some extra cash. I found a U-Haul for rent and there you go. At the end of the day, if you want to be sure things get done, it’s all about accepting personal responsibility.
