The order to stay at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19 has changed life as we know it. In addition to the fears around our physical health, many of us are out of work and nervous about our financial health too. So, what can we do to get through this very difficult time?
On this episode of Queer Money, I’m discussing the challenges many of us are facing in light of the Coronavirus pandemic, describing how job loss and income insecurity are causing additional stress and anxiety. I share the results of the Queer Money Facebook poll on how our community is faring right now, from those who are optimistic about getting through the crisis to those who are really struggling.
I open up about our own experience with income insecurity in January 2019, explaining how defeated John and I felt at the time and what we learned about not giving up on our dreams. Listen in for insight on what you can do to survive these challenging financial times and remember that ‘this too shall pass.’
