Are You Ready?
We never think it will happen to us. But bad things happen to people every day. And if you think it won’t happen to you, look out. We all need to get some plans in place so that we are ready for whatever life throws at us. As business owners, it is one thing for us to choose not to prepare for the future. But we need to realize that decision impacts our staff, customers, family, and a whole lot of people that would all prefer that we spend the time and energy to think through the potential and have a plan in place. In fact, it probably is the most important area we will ever address for our family and business.
That is why we are always focusing on legacy planning at RLO Training. Life is important, and the outcome of that life, when we are no longer around, is our legacy. We all have ideas of what we hope our life will do in terms of long term impact. But if we don’t plan for it, if we don’t tell people and write it down, then our legacy will be left to the courts and government and that is probably not going to turn out anywhere close to what we want. No one wants to face the reality that life is short and will end. No one wants to admit that they are a heartbeat away from a medical issue that could take them out of their business short or long term. But it can happen – it does every day – and we need to face it and deal with it proactively. It is part of disaster recovery and business continuity. What happens to your business, family, and legacy if something happens to you?
We need to prepare and be ready for whatever life throws at us. It is a lot of work, takes a lot of communication and effort, but it is the only way to assure that your legacy will turn out the way you want it to be. Now is the time. Make a plan for the future of your business! Need help with your plan? Call RLO Training at 800-755-0988.
