I use to pay my rent in cash to my landlord’s cousin. I had just arrived in a new country. I had a million things to do. I have my two children to take care of. Then it hit me. Girl, come on! You are putting yourself in a dangerous place. The landlord could say I never paid him.
Even if everybody is nice and smiling, we have the responsibility to protect our money my friend my sister.
With the amazing and generous help of my neighbor, I manged to have my landlord come from another country and sign a power of attorney in favor of his cousin. Moreover I now pay my rent by check.
In what areas of your life could you use some assertiveness to protect your money my friend my sister?
