Considering our personal finances; what lessons have we learned from Nene-gate?
How can we apply those lessons now, seeing as though we might go through all of that again?
This is some of what Ingram suggested:
Take time to make big decisions.

Try scenario planning rather than a one solution approach.
- Even really bad news might have a longer term positive outcome.
