Weathering the Storm
“I get my best ideas
in a thunderstorm.
I have the power and majesty
of nature on my side.”
Ralph Steadman, Artist and Friend of
Hunter S. Thompson
Our professional days are filled with triumphs and tragedies. However, during the “thunderstorm” of a tragedy, the merit of our character shines through. When moving through the quagmire, our actions prove to ourselves that the storm will end and there will be a light at the end of the tunnel.
Yes, sometimes servers go down, equipment fails, trusted employees betray you, but life must continue. This month, BFL&S offers not only tales of woe, but actionable advice on how to prepare and protect your company. In “Corporate Criminals” an expert in the field of corporate espionage speaks out on what those within the industry can do to iron clad their businesses from harm.
In addition, last month, the BFL&S team attended the ON DEMAND show in Philadelphia. Not only do we offer a print feature about the growing onslaught of digital technology and equipment, but we are also pleased to present our first online video—or “webisode”—produced to inform our readership through an exciting and entertaining, new format. To view, simply log onto www.bfls.com for a firsthand taste of the future.
Storm season is indeed upon us, whether it is a storm of change, betrayal or breakdown. The key is to prepare in advance and act swiftly when in the thick of it. Eventually, the clouds will break and your business will bask in the sunlight.
