One of the first things you want to do is to make sure that you have everything backed up (and not just on a disk but on paper as well). Make sure you have a back up of at least the following.

1. Your clients - all their information.
2. Your vendors
3. Your calendar

Make sure for these backups you have one in a safe place, away from your office, put one copy of these in a get-away bag. Something you could pick up quick on your way out of the office.

Enjoy your day.

Preparing your business for troubled times - we're going to be talking this week about preparing your business for trouble. One of the reason why we're doing this is because a couple of weeks ago we had a power outage that lasted several days. This got me to thinking what would have happened if the outage had lasted longer than a few days.

Today we're going to give you a few web resources that will help you plan.
Tuesday and Weds we're going to talk about steps to take before anything happens.
Friday we'll talk about what to happen during the unexpected.

A good site from the cdc on preparedness.

Some business specific help from the cdc.

Some good stuff from the American Red Cross

Some relavent info for your zip code.

Here are a couple of sites with some SEO tools that you can use.
