Prepare and Plan
I work in the insurance industry where everything is done to plan "just incase" something bad happens. I've spent my entire career, my life for that matter, doing my best to prepare and plan so that I can do my part to help make the best things happen. Life doesn't always cooperate, but I've found that planning, thinking things through from every possible perspective, and then initiating a well thought-out plan has served me well as a Freeholder and in life as well.
