If you have a manager make certain that he/she has a fiduciary obligation to you, otherwise you're just dealing with another broker who'll just rip you off selling the next greatest thing to come along and pays him a high commission.
Stash some cash, not a little but a serious enough amount that you can ride out a crisis of 2 months or more and not be broke. I stashed enough for 6 months, some of it is in gold and silver coin.
Find an independent safe/security deposit company, avoid banks, that you can access 24/7. Some banks will no longer allow you to store cash in safe deposit boxes.
Smart money move...................... move to a free country!
