One of my friends who works in the dying side of my industry is working hard to gain the skills and knowledge she needs to stay marketable and employable.
Her husband is in the same business and is content to take it as it comes. I asked her recently what his plans were for the future and she said: I'm his backup plan.
I decided I would ask Mr. SLS what his backup plan was if he lost his job for some reason. He immediately rattled off a list of what he would do, how he would do it, where we would cut back etc. Which was the right answer.
What's your backup plan?
