Episode 336: Why Business Continuity Planning Equals Freedom for Entrepreneurs


 Are you working 50-60 hours a week on your construction business? What happens if you suddenly can’t come to work? Is your business designed to run without you?

Here’s the staggering truth: Only 15% of CEOs have a business continuity plan in case they are incapacitated, pass away, or a key employee leaves the company. Why do only 15% of CEOs have such a plan?

In this week’s episode, Monish and I discuss the critical topic of business continuity. We talk about the ripple effects of a business owner’s absence, why most of them avoid continuity planning, how to make your construction business resilient, and what it means to have a business continuity plan.
