Sick personAs we approach the season of bugs & viruses we need to take stock.  Do we know what would happen if we just could not work, due to ill health for any period of time?  Do you have an emergency plan in place?  Do you have some first responders to help out?

It would be that you are hit down by the bugs flying around the playground or you have the kids off school as they are unwell or a family member is not well.  Your caring role is always there, in sickness and in health but the Autumn and Winter months seem to increase the need for time to be taken to look after others, family, friends, loved ones and yourself.

Sometimes you just have to hold your hands up and say “so what, I am not going to get as much done as I would have liked this week” and just sort through the urgent stuff and let the rest wait, other times we are going to be out of the working environment completely and unable to run our businesses – then what?

Think about having a back up plan for these times, a plan that will enable your business to keep ticking over.  Whether that is someone who you can call on on an emergency or part time basis to deliver your services or sell your products or a Virtual Assistant to answer your calls, emails and update your Social Media.  Have some emergency first responders in place for the winter bugs months just in case.

If you can though – stay healthy!!
