[Back Up Plan] The Importance Of Having A Brilliant Plan B

Because I had a brilliant back up plan I was able to save 100's of dollars and a lot of stress.

You've about Murphy's Law right?

His law states "anything that can go wrong, will go wrong."

This is just one of those axioms that prove to be true over and over. And today, it came true for me...again.

But it didn't bother me. Because I had a plan B. I had a back up plan.


Back up Plan Meaning:

A back up plan means having a plan in case something bad happens. ​

I learned long ago that I needed a plan B. Because something bad happens all the time.

So if I didn't prepare then I could lose hundreds of dollars, have bad PR and lose jobs.

So What Happened?

​What happened is that I had employee of mine text me in the middle of night...too late to get someone else...saying that his appendix has ruptured and that he is going to the hospital for surgery. 

This is not the first time something like this has happened. And I suspect that it has happened to you a few times as well.

But I had a plan in place just for this eventuality.

Here let this video explain it:

While the story about Michael is amusing it also shows us that it is critical to have a plan B. 

And just as critical is executing that back up plan.

Having a plan B for your back up plan is always a wise choice too. You just never know when you go to execute your plan B that it won't go sideways as well.

The moral of the story is to anticipate when and where things can go bad and ensuring that you have a plan in place to solve those problems.

God Bless. Have a great day!

In July 2008 I was fired from my landscaping job, so I went on to start my own moving company. For the next 6 months I quickly learned what it took to not only start a moving company but to build one as well. Now...I make over $300K a year, employ up to 8 movers and do over 500 moves a year all over the state and country...Now I am on a mission to help the next generation of moving entrepreneurs how to start and run their own moving businesses.
