A great back up plan

Sometimes in life you meet someone who impresses you more than any other person before.

  • I was introduced to a gentleman last year that really fit that description.

He worked two jobs, raised his small children on his own, and still found time to help others. I am not even organized to work and take care of the house so I couldn’t imagine his life. He is very organized and I think that this is key to his success. The other thing that is amazing is the fact that he as back up plans for back up plans. Take for instance his kids, if one is sick or there is an unexpected school closure, he never even has to think about it. He has several people lined up to care for them without hesitation. I was really blown away while visiting him one day. We were in the basement and he was showing me some of the new tools he had gotten when I noticed a large container in the corner. I asked him what he had ordered and he said it was a new boiler. I said I didn’t think anything was wrong with his and he said that it was working fine. He said he just felt like he needed to be prepared in the event that his broke. The one he had was about fifteen years old so I guess I could see why he would be concerned. Most people, however, don’t purchase a backup HVAC unit, “just in case”. It is a big investment but he said that he had bought it because it was last year’s model and he got a really good deal. I can’t imagine thinking that far ahead but I admire him for the fact that he is.
