“Protect Your Business” or this episode can also be called “What I Learned from Dropping my Smartphone Down an Elevator Shaft.” Yes, I really dropped my Smartphone down an elevator shaft! You can only imagine the disbelief on my face when it happened and the “what do I do now” thought.
I was lucky, my phone was protected and I was able to get it back within a few days. Imagine what would have happened if I hadn’t invested in a good protective case.
How is your business protected against the unexpected? What would happen if your computer suddenly died (my PC died last week)? Is your data backed up? What would happen if you catch the flu (I did last week)? Would your business still function?

Highlights: 4 Things to Consider to Protect your Business
- Protect your investment – What can you do to protect your business? I invested in a top of line case for my Smartphone and it was worth every penny. What protection do you need for your business?
- Anticipate what might happen – Think about how your business can run for a few days if you are unable to work. What do you need to be ahead on so that things can still work if you get sick?
- Back up everything – For many of us our computers are often our business’ life. They contain our contacts, our records, our products, our documentation and so much. Back it up regularly, invest in an external back system, either in the cloud or on an external drive.
- Know where to get help (and ask for it!) – Don’t hesitate to ask for help when things go wrong. It is the fastest way to recover and the best way to serve your customers.
