Market Correction?

It’s hard to argue that the ’market’ won’t have a correction at some point in the future. And, we can certainly speculate about the timing and depth of the correction. I would be interested in ideas about what a prudent investor should be doing now to protect, prepare and potentially benefit from the upcoming correction.
