If the Meeting Had Been on Friday

  • By Jillian Taylor-Mancusi, B.A., C.I.R.P

 

I had a meeting scheduled for last Monday morning. His accountant set it up for him. Business setbacks were making his financial situation impossible. He didn’t show up.

Later that morning, I received a call from the accountant who had referred him. He sadly informed me that the reason for not showing up, was that the client had taken his own life on the weekend.

This was sad on so many levels. The loss of a husband and father was terrible. And all the more tragic because the cause – financial problems – was solvable.

So often, the prospect of financial ruin and bankruptcy is seen as the end of everything. But Bankruptcy is not the problem, it is the solution. If we could have met this man, I am confident that we could have solved his problems and gotten him started on a new financial life. Instead he lost his life, and his family lost him.   If only that meeting had been on Friday.
