I wanted to give you just a brief glimpse of how Firestorm 2007 is affecting small business. Half of our team was evacuated so they are most likely out for most of the week. We hope and pray that their homes are fine.
Jason (Project Manager) was working on a commercial shoot that was cancelled and pushed forward 2 weeks because the fires have taken the law enforcements priority so they cannot allocate resources to a commercial shoot.
We have been asked by the City to stay off the road as much as possible to keep it clear for emergency vehicles. In addition this also makes sense especially if something were to go wrong such as an accident. Our emergency resources are better spent.
So this brings up the question...What do you do for your business when your team is evacuated and you have limited resources? I decided to catch up on my writing , proposals and improve our online presence.
But think about it for a moment…
If one or more of your businesses has an online segment to it then business does not need to stop for an emergency. Virtual business is still open. We have outsourced projects around the globe that are still continuing to be done. So virtually were still moving forward on several fronts.
Personally I am trying to find strength in this challenge to use the resources that I have available to me and move forward as best I can. Isn’t that what life is all about anyway?
The San Diego the community is pulling together and apparently the shelters are overflowing with food but still keep us in your prayers. The full team should be back together at the Batcave later this week.
