In today’s day and age, taking into account the fragility of the economy in the face of unexplained disasters and pandemics is paramount.

I am a fervent believer of the fact that the luckiest people in the world are those who prepare themselves for the right opportunity. And this is what this article is about. Getting your prepared for what’s to come. Because failing to prepare, is definitely preparing to fail. You won’t have it otherwise.
