The Everything You Need Binder

If life throws curve balls, military life throws wrenches. No joke, It seems like the unexpected happens at a higher frequency in the military. And it’s often things we don’t have experience with. Because of that, it can be hard to figure out how to handle the challenge or situation put in front of you. In this episode, I talk with fellow milspouse and Accredited Financial Counselor Kate Horrell about her new Everything You Need Binder and how it can help you and your family be prepared for the wrenches military life can throw your way. Kate Horrell is a personal financial educator who helps the military community make the most of their pay and benefits. She shares the most up-to-date information in understandable terms and highlights how rules, programs, and laws will directly impact your personal finances. With over ten years working with thousands of military families, she understands the concerns of currently serving, retired, and veteran families. Kate shares more about the binder and its wealth of resources to help you and your family communicate and prepare to handle almost everything in military life.
