The Plan B Strategy - The Plan B Strategy - Would You Be Open To Having One?

2 replies
The idea of a "Plan B Strategy" was brought home to me in a very personal way. My best friend, I'll call him Gary, was a successful real estate agent in our local area for many years. Real estate had been booming because of jobs and the capital flow here in Washington, DC. A funny thing happened, slowly the real estate market started to turn. Many people here in the real estate field shrugged it off because we thought our area was inflation proof. To make a long story short, as the market went down, sales went down, he earned less commissions, he had to make a lifestyle adjustment for himself and his family. Some of his friends had to leave the real estate field altogether and find jobs elsewhere, none of these individual had considered a backup plan, namely a plan B strategy. A solidly constructed plan B strategy in place would have given my friend something to fall back on. In these economic times that we live in today, does it make sense to have a backup plan to sustain the lifestyle our family is accustomed to living, I think so, does it make sense to you to have a plan B strategy? I'm a teacher with a pretty good position, however, I decided to establish a plan B strategy based on the acquisition of precious metals(gold and silver bullion coins produced by the U.S. Govt. I'm glad I did, because the dollar has dropped, my 401k is down, but gold and silver have soared. Would you be open to a plan B strategy based on the acquisition of tangible assets being a part of your portfolio?

    Your post doesn't have a lot to do with the subject of this forum, but as someone who is just getting started with IM, I find that a plan C, D, E, and F isn't such a bad idea.

    We all need to diversify and get outside our comfort zone.

      Greetings Stephen, thanks for being open and taking a look at the plan B strategy idea, maybe I got it wrong, I thought this forum was about internet marketing and making money. By clicking on the link it will take you to my internet marketing enterprise. In the economic times that we live in, it would be wise to have a backup plan, I was trying to make that case here. I visited you sites. You have excellent programs, the ntarsia wood art is fascinating I definitely learn something new there, I'll look in to 1 cent hosting, that looks like a good deal, and the hydrogen gas saver and your ten years experience as an engineer made me think of Edison, also I don't know much about squidoo, I'll have to look into how I might be able to use it. perhaps in the future we can connect and exchange some ideas. Thanks for the visit.

      Warmest Regards,
