Always Have a Backup Plan

You hear it all the time, yet you don’t do anything about it — well most people don’t. It’s something that rings true for more than just money. Here are just a few situations you don’t want to be in without any kind of backup plan.

  • You were depending on that punctual payment a client was meant to make, to pay the bills, mortgage, etc.
  • You’re so sure that all your photos or digital files really, be it personal or clients’ are on your computer, but somehow got corrupted or lost.
  • As a photographer, you’re on set with just one battery, the one that’s inside your camera.

Coming up with an exhaustive list is not that difficult, but you get the idea. Also there’s a fine line between backup plan and just in case, don’t get confused between the two.
