Prepare for the worst in your business: floods, tsunamis, earthquakes, fire, divorce, thieves and other unfortunate surprises. It might be boring but once completed, it is much easier to keep up and you will sleep better at night.
Taking inventory of your home and business assets is better when you have a buddy system. Otherwise "tomorrow" may never come and when you need it most, there will be no recourse.
After tow major floods, record snow storm, collapsing roofs, break-ins and divorce; I can tell you that "it will never happen to me" is far from true.
