Do you have a backup plan if something goes wrong?
Gotham has Batman...
...But what is your back up plan?
For example we could speak of this in regards to health and wealth as without one, the other is pointless. As I put my thoughts down here my heart lies heavy with my girlfriend who just learned that her boss passed away.
She works between two dental offices and as of yesterday worked pretty much 5 days a week. Though her heart was broken for a number of reasons. The passing of her employer and friend and then of course all of the uncertainty that instantly arrives with what the future will bring based on potential closing of the office she works in.
Now I know with her skills and passion for her career that many offices would welcome her on their staff, though there is no guarantee of that. In reality the only guarantees we have living in the United States as they sometimes claim are death and taxes.
This is why we need to have a back up plan established for scenarios like this to protect ourselves and our loved ones.
Many years ago after my 3rd daughter was born, I took it upon myself to learn more and start building a business part time to be able to help financially between the cost of children overall along with the potential for college payments and future weddings.
