What is your Plan B? with Mary Beth Simón
Show Notes

Typically when one person excels in finance and operations, all others take a back seat in cruise control, but what happens if the person who is in charge can no longer take ownership of that role? That’s why episode 32 of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries is about having a plan B with a contingency plan!

In this episode of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries, my guest Mary Beth Simón shares the importance of having a contingency plan in place and actionable steps you can take right now to use this plan to let go of some responsibilities now or use it as a safety net later. Some of the things Mary Beth and I cover in this episode are:

  • What is contingency planning and what are some of the things you may need to consider having in your plan.
  • Using a coach in your planning process to guide you through the steps and to keep you accountable for finishing it.
  • Your personal contingency plan should always come before your business plan.
  • Ways in which having a contingency plan for your business could benefit you now and save you later on.
  • Why and when you might want to consider putting this plan in place. Hint: it is a lot sooner than you might think. 
  • Outlining what is offered in Mary Beth’s continuance playbook and why you need it for yourself. 

Contingency plans are no longer optional but essential for both your personal life and your business.
