My only word of advice I s get short term and long term disability insurance. I was a auto tech at a Ford dealership then bought a garage and went on my own. My wife also worked as the service writer. Made it 9 years. About the 7th year started getting sick and had to sell at 9 years. Ended up on disability and possibly now getting hip joints replaced all because of Lyme disease. Long story short the short term kept us floating until we sold and my long term pays for 10 years hoping I can get back to doing something by then. It is relatively cheap and may just save you from losing everything. I try to tell everyone this hopefully I can save some people.
This is solid advice..Thank You.
Do today what others wont, so you can do tomorrow what others cant.
