I’ve mentioned this numerous times and it NEEDS to be repeated over and over again. You must have multiple outs when doing business.
If you asking what is an out, I’m talking about more then one option if one goes south. Back in the day it was called a back up plan.
Here is why I bring this up.
One of my vendors has been out of pocket for a project he has agreed to complete. I reached out to him for an update, and he said he was having problems with his internet and would respond to me tomorrow well that was three days ago.
I’m assuming he is still having challenges BUT now I must move on to complete the project that is already behind.
That’s what I mean by having multiple outs. One of my mentors taught me that the worst number in business is ONE.
Because when that one is out of pocket, broken, sick or whatever you can keep everything moving without your life coming to a grinding halt.
Always ask the question what are my outs? This way if you need to use it you spend less time trying to figure out what to do.
Have an Amazing Day and thank you for attending another episode of Eric’s Escapades.
