Save yourself some time
Luckily, our clever selves were able to figure out both, but we saved ourselves a lot of time by trying to get these items sorted out FIRST, before anything else. However, that did mean throwing in some gibberish content and leaving the template a weird shade of blue instead of our lovely red. This way, if the elements weren't working, we hadn't wasted a bunch of time on something we were going to have to throw away.
So why is Plan B so important?
“Plan B is even more key” doesn’t mean that you have to create two plans from the beginning; it just means that you shouldn't get too attached to your first plan, even if it’s super awesome and you love it dearly. It also means you should prioritize when creating Plan A, so that you haven't wasted any of your precious time before realizing that Plan A won’t work and you're back where you started.
