Panic washes over me. The realization that I’m broke, penniless and destitute sinks in. How will I provide for myself? My family? Where will I live? I wake up in a cold sweat, heart pounding, pulse thumping in my ears. Slowly, I return to wakefulness and I realize I was only having a nightmare.
But what if it really happened? What if I woke up one day and realized my investment portfolio was depleted and I couldn’t feed my family?
