What Happens When Things Fall Apart?
Would you be prepared if you suddenly were faced with illness, a natural disaster or some other tragic event that either affected you or your business and what plans and processes do you have in place to press through and get back to work?
In March of 2017, our entire lives were sent into tailspin when Ike and I were on our way to teach at Reset Conference 2017 and I was rushed to the emergency room with undiagnosed flu and pneumonia that led to a severe case of heart failure and was suddenly fighting for my life in intensive care.
That diagnoses had me in the hospital for 16 days, $1M + in medical debt, daily appointments with a full medical team, and took both Ike and I out of work for 4 months (photography being our sole source of income). This put us on the road to having to face what we were going to do as our lives were falling apart.
How do you plan for, cope through and bounce back from life's hardest moments and move forward in business? Ike and I hope to give you some things to think about and consider to fortify your business for life's unexpected challenges and to help you create a plan that will allow you to get back to work in spite of what you might face.
