Bottom line, my friend, the only thing constant in life is change. Being prepared for this change is the best way to take control and feel empowered to make your own decisions, as they will affect your life on an individual level. Educating yourself on options and taking diligent steps to set yourself up for success, will give you a higher likelihood of a successful and desirable outcome for both yourself and your family.
