Business Owners: Are You Prepared?
Although they rarely occur, earthquakes, large-scale power outages and other major disasters can be devastating to small businesses. Yet smaller disasters, like hard drive or server failures, loss of phone or internet services, fire, burst pipes and weather-related closures happen every day and can be equally as crippling.
When disaster strikes, those savvy business owners who have a disaster recovery plan in place can put it into immediate action. They can stay open in times of crisis to serve the needs of customers and, in certain cases, the surrounding community. Those without a plan face the dire prospect of shutting down – losing sales, revenue, and possibly a base of loyal customers.
The Small Business Development Center at TCNJ is your ally in Disaster Recovery Assistance. We can provide advice and assistance to develop your plan.
Good plans are simple, straightforward, and can help your business “stay up and running.” The next time an unexpected event interrupts your normal flow of business, you’ll be ready.
