As business owners, we can be faced with a crisis at any time. As they say, “it’s not a matter of if, but when.” It’s not always our fault either. Crisis can happen in many ways:
- Personal issues
- The market
- And so many more!
Fortunately, there are things we can do to limit:
- Personal injury or death
But no matter how hard we try, there are still some things we can’t predict or prevent. This can leave us feeling vulnerable and panic-stricken. Being vigilant and planning ahead can help reduce the impact of an emergency and problem-solve when things go wrong.
