It may seem counterintuitive to joke about throwing in the towel with the business success you’ve enjoyed thus far, but the truth is that not every business is able to succeed forever. So many business owners seek the advice of others on how to try harder, work smarter, or to do things differently in order that their businesses remain resilient and are more relevant.

Ask yourself this question; If you decided to take six months off from the business – as opposed to the old “what happen if you get hit by a bus” question – can your business survive without you for an extended period of time? If your answer is Yes, congratulations! You have achieved something most business owners only dream about. If your answer is No however, you should consider implementing strategies to lessen the business dependency on you.

What happens to your business tomorrow if something were to happen to you today? Life happens and we cannot stop it – accidents, sickness, disease, and death happens daily. None of us are protected against ‘life’ but you can take the necessary steps to protect the business by creating a documented CONTINUITY PLAN.
In looking back at the transition process – I am convinced that we would not have made the progress in transitioning to the next generation as smoothly or as effectively. It was not an easy journey but with your wise counsel, Terry, we were able to view the right things in the proper priorities and execute. Thanks for the help on the journey.
