As Australian’s we don’t want to spend our time thinking about what would happen to us if we were injured or ill. Or worse. And we certainly don’t want to think about the impact it would have on our family and our business partners.
The financial impacts of these events are huge.
Unfortunately, not considering these possibilities is all too common.
Research tells us that we ‘never think it will happen to us’ and our ‘she’ll be right, mate’ approach often leads us to be poorly prepared for an unforeseen event.
Let me share with you a story.
Mark was an business owner who had this same thinking. In his mid forties, he owned two businesses which were going well, and started to spend more time with his wife and two kids.
Then, one day in the shower, he noticed that a mole on his chest was a lot bigger and lumpier than he thought. After a visit to the doctor he received news that shook his world. It was cancerous, a form of melanoma.
In that moment, time stopped for Mark. His thoughts turned to his wife and kids, his business and how this would impact his financial situation.
The doctors told him he needed to fast track treatment and after many tearful nights and conversations no one wants to have with their partner, Mark ploughed head long into an eight month recovery.
Problem was, business suffered. Sales were down which lead to Mark reducing what he was taking out of the business at a personal level. They had to put their mortgage payments on hold and the bills and credit card debts started to grow. In desperation, they asked Marks parents for a loan to pay for one of their kids dentist bills.
But there was a silver lining. After six months, Mark’s treatment began to work. He was able to return to a few days in the business and after a couple more months of treatment, he had beaten the cancer.
