What happens to your business if you get hit by a bus?
By Michelle Post
I know what you’re thinking, “What the heckfire! I don’t even want to think about being hit by a bus.” Me neither; however, I learned about this concept from a colleague. She told me that everyone in her department was so specialized if anyone were sick it would affect the day’s productivity significantly. Therefore, the department came up with the project, “If I were hit by a bus,” and each person had to document everything they did daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. It was a laborious process, but when the project was completed, the department ensured its legacy success.
As a business owner, I realized if I were “hit by a bus” it wouldn’t just affect my customers, but my husband, too. Therefore, I thought of what I must document to ensure both my customers and husband are protected.
