Last week those of us here in Florida were treated to a tropical visitor named Fay, the tropical storm that definitely overstayed her welcome. And that is the inspiration for this week’s poll…
According to the emails that I received from them, several local scrapbook stores were forced to close down due to the weather conditions (as were a lot of other local businesses). Disaster planning is something that we don’t like to think about personally or in our businesses, but it is still necessary.
I wonder, how many retail or manufacturing businesses in the scrapbook industry have disaster plans to cover everything from minor power outages to full-scale destruction of their buildings by fire or natural disaster?
Let’s take a poll and find out how prepared we all are. As usual, I’d love to hear in the comments about your thoughts on disaster planning for your business.
