It's always important to be as prepared as possible for unforeseen occurrences in your business. It's even a good idea to plan for financial hardship in your business by setting up a business savings account if possible. This will certainly help when/if you come upon down seasons and business is slow. Thanks for sharing your insights.

I suspect most businesses don't do this. Good suggestion.

Agree to the story that being prepared is always the best thing to do especially for business. Data backups are the most important for me as losing every important file that you have for your business will be the biggest setback and could mean losses. Backing up from both the cloud and an external storage would be ideal to double your data security. Thanks for sharing!

Do you have specific services you use for data backups? Would you recommend them?

Start-ups and small business owners should have a disaster plan and insurance against natural events! No one ever know what night or tomorrow bring!

Thank you for sharing!
