Where is Your Data?

November 30, 2011 at 3:02 pm Leave a comment

My home computer crashed last week.  Yesterday, I was at a client’s place and their admin computer crashed.  (Not if, but when, right?)

So far, I only seem to have lost one doc.  It was my reading list, a private doc, although I post it every month (except maybe this one), so it was the only thing not backed up elsewhere.  There are probably lots of other bits I’ve downloaded over the years, but I will either be able to get them again, or I won’t remember them, so it doesn’t really matter.  I haven’t tried to read the hard drive, yet.  It’s very likely all on there.

As for my client, all their info was on a server.  They just plugged in their new computer, set it up and away they went again.

There’s no excuse anymore for losing data when your computer crashes.

PC World has an indepth look at backing up, including different strategies for different reasons.

Lifehacker has a summary article including links for further information in other articles.

It’s great to have that peace of mind knowing my data is safe.  What about you?  What if you lost a computer?

The Three Success Factors

I have worked closely with 100’s of business owners and I have seen too many struggle. I have seen what works and what doesn't.

It takes 3 things to succeed:
1. Hard work - and I know you do that already.
2. Knowledge - domain knowledge: you've got that and continue to learn; and business knowledge: this is where everyone focuses and it's easy to find
3. Mindset - This is the killer app. This is what makes or breaks small business owners.

We work on Mindset here at the Business Owners Success Club: how you think about yourself and your business.

When you focus on a business that gives you what you need to live a Good Life and gives others what they need to solve a problem, everything else falls into place and you have a successful business.

Using that as a framework we work on one aspect of business every month. February is "Your Place in Your Community" month.

In March we will open the doors to our online community. Stay Tuned.
