With gas prices still climbing, the housing market struggling, and Americans blindly swiping themselves deeper and deeper in debt, I found myself in a conversation the other day with a good friend who asked me, "So what happens if the band folds? How will you provide for your family? What's your 'Plan B'?"
Have you been asked that before? It's a little disconcerting, really - I mean, we don't ever PLAN on needing a "Plan B"... and that's why it's always good to have one. I'll be honest... I don't really have a "Plan B". I've thought about it a lot and I know what steps I would take when the time comes, but it's not quite necessary right now (I could be singing a different story when Baby Rockstar comes along in a few more months!).
The whole topic of making money is one that I struggle with. The reality is that I live in the US where even those who live below the poverty line in this country are richer than more than half of the world's population. I walk the line daily in my current employment between "business" and "ministry". I want to provide well for my family - be "successful" - but I don't want making more money to be the end goal.
