Navigating Financial Anxiety and the Coronavirus Stimulus Package

With Financial Advisor Christopher Girbés

In light of current world events, many people are experiencing abrupt financial insecurity. Whether going from one or two incomes down to one or none, or owning a business directly impacted by COVID-19, millions of individuals are experiencing significant stress around finances. Financial anxiety is one of the top reasons for chronic stress, but it doesn’t have to be.

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk with my good friend, Christopher Girbés about the details of the Coronavirus Relief Bill, who will be getting the CARES Act stimulus, how much, and how it will be delivered. We discuss immediate ways to acquire money if you’re struggling to find a way to make ends meet. We also talk about 4 big ideas that will help you tackle financial anxiety head on.

Being aware of personal finances is an opportunity to create a system that works and to be prepared for the future, even when the present feels uncertain. Take financial power into your own hands by learning from this experience and preparing for the next one.
