Entrepreneurial Doomsday Prepping: How to Protect Your Business for When Life Hits Hard (cuz it will!) (FS306)

How do we create necessary safety nets for our businesses? What happens when disaster strikes or you just need to take a holiday? What are the most important areas to cover?

Every business will have its own unexpected ups and downs. Being prepared for these can mean the difference between staying alight and fizzling out, so we want to unpack how to go about prepping your ship for all manner of waters!

In this episode, we get right to the core of what it means to prepare well for the inevitable difficulties you or business might encounter. We go through some of the ways you can approach this task, talking about different modes of work, productivity and why time off is so important.

We also talk about recovery from tough periods, the concepts of good enough and trust and why it is not actually that difficult to be well prepared in this regard. This is such a vital topic because in the end, it can all collapse if you do not reinforce your businesses structures now!
