Let’s talk about money, and being prepared for the future. Now, we’re not talking about retirement, or planning for 40 years from now or anything like that. I want to talk to you about what you would do if your world was shaken. Tomorrow. Or next week. Or if, heaven forbid, a member of your immediate family was in an accident. What would you do then? Do you have a contingency plan?
I have a confession – for a really long time, I didn’t have a contingency plan. If something happened to me, what would I do? I HAD NO IDEA. Since it was just me, I totally didn’t think I needed a plan. And as a relatively healthy adult, I didn’t think I really needed health insurance. I’d just pay in cash when I needed to see someone. Win-win. I’d save the monthly premium from health insurance, and would have more money in my pocket.
