You know that everyone dies and everyone pays taxes. But, did you know that almost everyone (7 out of 10 businesses) will not survive after experiencing a significant disaster? That’s 70%! As the leader of your business or organization, how can you beat those odds?
Answer: It starts with a plan. Unfortunately, like the stop sign principle where a sign was installed after the accident, most companies don't begin planning until after a disaster has happened. Any good financial advisor will tell you that it's not how much you make (Asset Generation) it's how much you keep, (Asset Preservation). Tragically, many short sighted businesses will invest years in R&D, training, and infrastructure development, only to lose everything for failing to plan for the unexpected disaster.

Fact 2: There is always something you can do to improve your existing program.
Here are a few things you can do immediately as you consider the subject.
