Preparing For The Coming World Disaster

I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the world will not end on December 21, 2012.  Sorry to break it to you.  I’m not quite sure how the Lord’s gonna work this whole thing out, because he said no one knows the day nor the hour.  What with 7 billion plus people there’s bound to be a hack proclaiming the world’s end at any given moment. My guess is that when in fact the world does end (as we know it), the charlatan that happened to be right at that particular time will die of shock that he actually got it right.

I also can tell you the world is going to end as we know it some day and you’d be wise to be ready for it.  That’s not the purpose of this blog today, but if you want to know more about that topic you can check it out here.

But from a strictly earthly, human point of view here’s what I’d recommend if the coming world disaster is something as innocuous like the US Dollar being absolutely worthless or something mundane like that:

1. Get out of debt and build your emergency fund.

2. Don’t depend upon the government for your livelihood.

3. Diversify your income stream: income from more than one source.

4. Cut your expenses down to the bare bones.  There are lots of ways to do this.  Getting some advice can be of emmence help.
