BP is one of my favorite acronyms to describe how I work. BP is short for many of my favorite things. Just to name a few:
- the Boy and Girl Scouts mottoes of Be Prepared
- my acronym for Back Pocket Skills – developing hidden skills that are ready when needed like CPR, sign language, any language, first aid, sewing skills, car repair, etc.
- Plan B – looking at what might go wrong and having a procedure in place just in case. Those “What If” scenarios can save you lots of money, time, opportunities, or your life!
- The Backup Plan
Everyone should have a backup plan for their data. What data you ask? Anything that you have on your computer or any device (and you know you have SOOOOOO many devices). Unfortunately, we are seeing the devastation with Hurricane Harvey and the floods. While many are just struggling to save their family members, pets, and themselves, some have the opportunity to grab a few essentials. You won’t be able to grab all of your photos and devices, but what if you just had to grab a portable hard drive that had a backup of everything? And/Or, what if you also had an online backup of your data? I personally use Seagate portable hard drives, and they have additional online backup offers with their products. I also professionally use SmartVault for backing up my client data and my financial data. The actual system you use isn’t what’s important, but the process of regular backups is important. Contact me if you’d like some ideas on how to protect your valuable photos and data.
