Ideally, every company should have an operating manual, but for the Inspiring Woman it’s a must!  An operating manual will help facilitate smooth, uninterrupted operation of your business.  It documents information such as general company data, policies, processes and procedures, key business contacts, vendors, collaborators, services, technical support, employee roster, job descriptions, the business plan, etc. — basically anything one might need to know in order to run your business.  The Inspiring Woman should include an additional section that contains a ‘Plan B,” where B is for BACKUP in the event of your absence due to an unexpected health crisis. In this section, include information on daily operations, routine tasks, the calendar, current projects, select passwords and a plan of action for your absence.  Don’t expect to put together your operating manual “overnight.”  You can build and improve on it as you go.  And, remember, your manual will only be as useful as it is up-to-date.
