Washington, D.C.-based writer Lisa Schamess—knowing of my 2008 brush with fate—invited me to share a few thoughts about 'planning for the inevitable' via her CheapBohemian.net blog.
My guest post about better-late-than-never estate planning went live Tuesday night: http://bit.ly/bnJQ5d.
Through her blog, which she launched in May 2010, Lisa offers a wry perspective on struggling with the financial realities that confront folks who are trying to live within their modest means.
I'm honored that she offered me a chance to contribute a few insights from my own experience to her readers. (And I hope they'll forgive the brief-but-candid description of the storefront crash that served as my own estate planning wake-up call.)
A lot of us, I suspect, would find ourselves caught a bit flat-footed if life threw us a sudden curve ball, be it an accident or an illness or some other show-stopping crisis.
So, I'll start working in some resources and suggestions here at StorefrontCrashes from professionals who can point us toward making good on the Boy Scout motto: 'Be prepared.'
