COVID Recession, What Is Your Five-year Plan?
 
# 1 : Tuesday 12-5-2020 @ 09:35
 
 
After the R-rate has dropped, what is your R-plan to rise?
COVID has driven us to a monstruous recession that will last 2 to 5 years.

What is your recession pack/plan for youself?

I am banking on:
- putting all my saving towards my mortgage
- losing my job within 2 years, without the package I would have gotten 2 years ago
- finding another job in under 3 to 12 months, living on 2 years of savings
- selling my property in 5 years, by breaking even on what is left on the mortgage (no profit but no loss except a huge rent for the past 20 years...)

Not too bad if that's the worst of it.
That's plan A.

Things will turn around next year, the world won't end and be positive.

I had applied to go to College in September to do a Graphic Design course. That's kind of up in the air now. Returning to the catering industry is unlikely as 1. it's gonna collapse 2. I hate it

Could you write recipe books, for kids and for eating healthy? Jazz up a meal, that'd look boring too a child and make cooking healthy meals an adventure etc.?

I don't think my family will be affected, hopefully.
It will be the same as usual, although with a bit of luck my partner will continue to work from home. That has been a great change and one i would hope continues.
Other than that its going to be the same.

My job is pretty much guaranteed for life so financially I'll be fine (assuming we aren't all crippled by tax after all this), I've no dependants and have no plans to own property so I can just keep plodding along as usual

If property was affordable to rent, plentiful and in good condition. There'd be no need for so many people, to get into debt for a decent home and would have more to spend in the economy.

Just updated my 5 years plan, as a ghost from the past came back in my life, in the most unexpected way.

You sound like you have it all worked out. Have a 20 year mortgage left and about the same until I retire. Wishing my life away....

Best to take one day at a time, sometimes. Less pressure that way ! Lol
