The best piece of financial advice I have been given was to get income protection and life insurance.
The advice came from my husband (and it's the only time I'll admit he was right). My husband and I have very different financial views, he likes to save and I like to spend.
We were about to enter into a long distance relationship as I was moving to Sydney four years ago to work on the Hot 30 Countdown, my husband made sure my finances were in check before moving over there and that I had safety nets in place.
If he didn't give me that advice I would currently be in financial ruin.
I now pass this advice onto anyone that will listen, life and work can be very unpredictable and it's best to be safe than sorry. Seek financial advice and don't ever think you are too young to put safety nets in place, you never know when you might need them.
