What If You Vanished For A Week?

Would your business survive if you disappeared for a week?

As a freelancer or solopreneur, the answer is “Duh! Of course!”

Even for entrepreneurs who have several employees, disappearing for a week could cripple their businesses… unless they have built-in systems.

I came to this “obvious realization” after a recent medical problem (which I overreacted to).

It reminded me to start developing low-maintenance businesses that do not rely on me too much.

Is that even possible? Of course it is.

Here are some simple examples:

  • own a network of vending machines
  • write books and earn royalties
  • rent out spaces for billboards

What about your business? Is it too dependent on your presence? What can you do about it?
