Prevention is better ….

πŸ’—πŸŽ€πŸ’—πŸŽ€ I am a person who many would say an over preparer… prepare for a shitstorm type of person. Maybe its due to working in retail for 99 % of my life. Always over prepare and stay ahead of the game has been my theory. Prevent the problems if you can. I can remember my…
