If you are gainfully employed and moving ahead in life I salute you. The title of this short article has to do with what have you put together as a “Plan B” in case something happened and your current employment suddenly ended? That can happen, you know…
Accidents happen. I have a good friend who travels for a major corporation and he was injured in an automobile accident, NO fault of his own… other than he was ‘where he was’ when two BIG trucks came together and he was stuck in the middle. Many surgeries later… he is finally back to work and when I asked him what HIS backup plan was… he honestly didn’t have one… but I believe he soon may.
Companies go out of business. Take BLOCKBUSTER for example. The employees, the managers and the owners were all going along just fine. They showed up for work, did their jobs and NO fault of their own… they were all let go (with the exception of a few stores that stayed open because they were PRIVATELY owned.) What happened? A company called NETFLIX. That’s what! Who wants to go out to rent a video tape when you can simply look online and click to watch it right on your computer or television and never leave the comfort of your home? And the selections are HUGE and ever increasing. I wonder how shocked the majority of the Blockbuster employees were? Did any of them have a “Plan B”?
Weather related events can change your life too! If you’ve paid ANY attention to the weather news lately I am satisfied that you have heard of at least one or two events that would have changed YOUR life had you lived where those events were happening. Mother Nature has a way of showing up when you least expect her and sometimes her visits are totally destructive. What would be your “Plan B” if the facility where you work was destroyed by a flood, a hurricane or tornado? How many months would it take, if ever, for things to get back to normal for the company, much less you? Would you survive financially if that happened?
Why am I asking all these painful questions?
I honestly don’t have a DARK side. I am just being realistic and a ‘bit’ dramatic to make a point and that is… It’s often good to have a Plan B. What would you do if…? And what could you do if…?
One of the simplest things anybody can do is do some marketing online and create a decent income stream. What? You don’t know how? You wouldn’t have a clue what to do? Or what to sell? You hate selling?
There are a million reasons NOT to do what I just suggested and then… there are many people making MILLIONS doing just that. So, what is it?
Have I peaked ANY curiosity here? Would you take a look if I offered you a F.ree 10 day (online) course where you could get an idea what is involved? You can do the whole course on your phone, tablet or computer. Oh, and by the way, the gentleman who presents the course is an 8 figure earner! So he knows from where he speaks. He has the experience, the expertise, and he shares if with you for 10 days. After that, it’s up to you to decide if that is something that would work for you.
