While I was trying to provide a quote for a delivery my cell phone kept losing wireless connection. It still had bars but for some reason would not load the page I needed. To be honest, I kinda wanted to throw it up against the wall .Just pitch it at high speed out of the car window. But I did not. Because without that phone I am driving without a connection to my clients. I wouldn't have directions to all the new places I am going and the biggest reason of all, no Candy Crush! Just kidding, kinda.
Basically, I need it, even if it is acting crazy.
When the phone would not pick up I found a Subway sandwich shop and used their free wifi. I did not get the job but at least I had a chance to try. My phone worked fine for the rest of the day and I got the rest of them.
What is my take away from this little cell phone dilemma.
Always have a back up plan. If you run a business you should work on having a plan in place for any and all of life's little (and big) issues.
My back up plan is having wifi hotspots along the way and having phones on me by 2 different carriers as I drive.
I love that Rollin is the back up plan for some clients. People often call only a couple times a year as they need us due to illness or car trouble. Heck we even get calls when someone just does not feel like braving bad weather.
What is your back-up plan?
