“Most of us do not do enough to prepare for the unexpected.” How sure are you that you, your family, and your business are ready in times of emergency?
Our guest today is Mary Beth Simón. She founded Niche Partnership Consulting “to solve real-world problems faced by individuals and entrepreneurs” with particular emphasis on helping them create their contingency plan to keep business and life running smoothly in an emergency.
Listen in and learn why most people’s “contingency plans” are seldom robust enough when challenging times arrive and the most common things that they overlook when it comes to having their plan ready for deployment. Mary Beth also explains why contingency plans are not just for the elderly or sickly and why it is, in fact, never too early for anybody to start preparing theirs.
