You’ve heard of the domino effect. You’ve surely seen those elaborate tricks set up by domino geeks where 200,000 or 500,000 or even 2,000,000 dominoes are set up in a mind-bendingly intricate pattern.
And once they start falling, it’s hard to stop them.
Unless you remove one of the dominos down the line and stop the avalanche of destruction.
Now, think of the money you have saved.
What kind of expense would it take to wipe it all out?
$500 car repair, $1000 trip to the emergency room, $5000 basement flooding?
If you’re like most people, it would not take a major disaster to wipe out your savings. It would only take a minor one.
And once that first domino has fallen, it’s hard to stop the rest from slapping down swiftly.
Unless you’ve taken steps to ‘remove a domino’ and give yourself a buffer.
But working a 9-to-5 job on a fixed income makes it difficult to save that buffer you need to save you from the Domino Effect.
You need your own business.
