This week I learned that someone close to me is expecting her first child later this year. She and her husband are really good people, so I know they are going to make terrific parents.

A lighter load makes for a more pleasant journey.
Do yourself a favor and drop as much unnecessary debt as you can now. It’s going to get much more difficult to pay off debt once the baby arrives. You’re going to have plenty of other things to keep you up at night from now on. The bad news is your expenses are probably going to go up. The good news is it usually only lasts for about 20 years or so.
"Everyday expenses like food, childcare, healthcare and housing may be a challenge when met with an unexpected reduction to your household income. Life insurance may help bridge this gap. Contact your North American financial representative today to learn how life insurance may help ensure your family’s well-being in case of the unexpected."

"I think part of being fit, in any aspect of your life, is about reducing stress. Life insurance is something you can do that can take a stress out of your life instantly. When you’re younger, you’re spending, and those bills and your mortgage or rent wouldn’t magically go away if something happened to you. If you weren’t around, who’s going to take care of those bills? That’s what life insurance is for."
"Life insurance is one of those things that you can completely customize to meet your needs and your ability to pay, so it can be as big or small as you need it to be. Once you have your life insurance in place, it’s pretty straightforward—you just update it every so often to accommodate your needs."
