104: Yes you need a coverage plan, and here’s what goes into it

Season #1

Do you have an emergency plan in place that your team can "break the glass" on when you are absent from the office?

If not, then you need a coverage plan!

If you aren't familiar, a coverage plan is something you put together to make sure that if you can't make it into work for any reason and for any amount of time, your team will be able to function as normally as possible.

Coverage plans include which of your tasks need to continue to get done on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis; who on your team will be performing those tasks; who will be in charge of making decisions while you're gone; and much, much more.

The goal here is to make sure that when life happens—whether you get sick, you want to go on vacation, or have any other reason for being absent—your business doesn't miss a beat.

But where do you even begin with a coverage plan? Let's go over it together!
