Eliminate stress with a comprehensive backup plan

To many folks who have a typical corporate job, the life of a small business owner looks pretty attractive. In their minds, it’s the perfect situation because self-employment means you don’t have a boss to report to, no one forcing you to fill out endless reports or work on weekends, and everything gets done their way. Ask any small or medium sized business owner though, and they can give you a number of reasons why the grass may not be as green as many traditionally employed folks think it is. Owning your own business means you are responsible for everything, from sales and marketing to staffing and security. For most small and medium sized business owners there are so many things to worry about that there literally are not enough hours in the day to cover them all. The only way to survive (and maybe even succeed) in the business world is to be able to effectively delegate certain tasks to trusted associates and useful tools.

The problem is, when there are simply too many things to handle, the items that get overlooked are generally the ones that do not affect the day-to-day operations. Items that, while necessary, can be ignored and the business can continue on. Problem is, ignoring problems is a sure fire way to make sure that they jump and bite you when you least expect it. And in many cases these “un-glamourous” tasks that get ignored can have an immeasurable impact on your business if things go wrong.

One critical business process that is often overlooked is data backup and recovery. There are countless reasons why this critical process is overlooked, but at the end of the day, none of them are good enough. Sure, when things are running well, everything is great, but what the savvy CEO needs to focus on is what happens during the “bad” times. Not having a sound data backup and recovery plan can take a “bad” time and make it infinitely worse.

Let’s face it, for many businesses, losing even one day’s worth of data can lead to hours upon hours of file reconstruction, finger pointing and headaches. And that doesn’t even account for the fact that if your staff is busy trying to reconstruct lost data they are not making money for your business.

On the other hand, an ounce of proactivity can make all the difference. By having a sound data backup and recovery plan in place, you can rest assured that your company will be safe in the event of disaster. And don’t kid yourself, a disaster can be something as simple as a server crashing. Disaster doesn’t need to be a major event like a flood, fire, hurricane or tornado.
