For many, reaching FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) is a best case scenario. However, it's even more important to prepare for WORST case scenarios. Investments can crash, interest rates can change, disaster can strike and without a capacity to adapt, your FIRE could be extinguished.

Luckily, that's what this chapter is all about. Join Serina Bird from the Joyful Frugalista as she explores how to build financial resilience for a pre- and post-FIRE life. Her thoughts range from creating an emergency fund; to diversifying your passive income; to keeping abreast of legislative changes that may affect you.  By the chapter's end, you'll feel a little more prepared for the words.
