Life happens. Babies, weddings, funerals. Throw in graduations, promotions, maybe even birthdays and you’ve got all the ingredients needed for rash decisions.
A colleague tells how her daughter, upon the birth of her own daughter, impulsively purchased a $500 photography package. “She was just sick about it after she realized what she had committed herself to.”
Her advice to her daughter – and it’s good advice – was to make full use of the photography package and then next time don’t feel rushed into signing on the dotted line no matter how great the offer seems at the time.
When life happens, we often don’t make rational choices. We sign up for bad insurance plans, we make bad investment choices, we sign up for expensive photography packages.
Next time a life-changing event happens, happy or sad, take a deep breath and resolve not to make decisions, big or small, until you have time to check out the business first with your Better Business Bureau.
Have you rushed into making a purchasing decision under emotional circumstances? What was the result?
