Even the Boss Goes Back to School

Sunday, July 13th, 2014

University of ChesterI started my own company when I was just 18 years old. I have always been ambitious, and I thought that I could make a success of myself without going to school. I was both right and wrong with that though. I did create a successful company, but that is only because I hired the right people as I reached milestones to help me get to the next one. I started relying on these people more and more, and that is when I realized that I needed to get my own MBA degree.

I do trust the people who work with me. Otherwise, they would not be a part of the company that I have worked so hard for all of my adult life. I know that things can happen to people. They can retire, switch jobs, or even die.

It seems like nobody ever really expects to see flooding in their area, even if there is tons of information available about flood zones and potential risks. The sad truth is that many areas of the world are very prone to flooding and their geography means that all it takes is one string of bad luck for everything to see the impact. Whether the cause is something more unique like a hurricane or something a little more common like a heavy rain season, it is important to check your flood zone insurance to make sure that you have protection ready in case things take a turn for the worse.

Of course everyone can hope that flood insurance will never be necessary, as the optimal situation certainly does not involve flooding. Still nobody can control the weather and just because you have the best intentions does not mean you can prepare for these types of problems. (more…)
