Now, I might well be judging those trainers too hard. Most are providing a service and all that and they’re providing exactly what their customers want. The problem is with we, the consumers of said training.
What I laid out in that post, however, covers a whole lot of ground. There’s a lot of things to learn and train in. After all, between firearms training, hand-to-hand training, and physical training, you’re looking at hours upon hours per day potentially, all geared toward making you an uber-badass.
Bad things can happen. Anyone can experience a sudden downturn in circumstance and it doesn’t matter what you did because sometimes, it really isn’t your fault. However, as a man, you’re supposed to provide for your family. When your means to support them disappears, what can you do?
Truthfully, that’s not really the time to figure things out. At that point, there’s not really much else to do besides get a new job. However, understanding this can happen well ahead of time will let you do a few things to deal with such times.
The most obvious option is to save during the good times. Putting away sufficient money for six months worth of expenses is smart. It may be easier said than done, mind you, but it’s smart.
