Do you feel that?  The chill is in the air!  And with that cool chill comes reminders of past winter’s challenges.  Chances are, you were probably in the same boat as me. 

I remember waking up in the middle of the night with no power.  I told myself that maybe the power would soon return, but I was wrong.  The rolling outages in Texas failed and turned into a complete failure.  It was horrific.  February I became part of the 69% of Texans who lost power during the winter storm. 

Like millions of other Texans, my outage lasted several days.  Temperatures were frigid as they reached the negatives.  I camped in the bedroom with my family with piles of comforters and blankets on the bed to keep us warm.  Luckily, we were able to use our grill for a decent meal.  Although we had some comforts, reality hit hard when we realized we really weren’t prepared.

No matter which part of the United States you are in, it is always best to be prepared in case of an emergency.  As the saying goes, “Stay ready so you don’t have to get ready.”  Although I dedicate this site to matters pertaining to side hustles, gigs, etc., I must say that being a true hustler is all about preparation and readiness to face challenges.
