If for example you are somebody that is using a specific tool, and you have no other way of doing the work without that tool, it’s essential to have a fund to replace any equipment that may break. It’s important to note that there are insurances that make of you for accidental damage or theft, but if for example something small breaks and it cost more than your excess will cover then it’s best to have the funds available. Work out precisely what it would cost to replace all of your tools and make sure you have that to one side.



Sometimes the customers that you deal with me put in a complaint, rightly or wrong Lee. Unfortunately, there’s not a lot you can sometimes do and damage limitation by giving the customer what they asked for, is the only way forward. This is a frustrating part of business; however, it’s unavoidable at times. Some companies and services will protect you against some of the most significant claims. But ensuring that you have a backup plan will give you the confidence to move forward in your business and become successful.



Once you have filed your Lodge Bas certificate and have all of your taxes in order, you will usually be in the right place financially. As long as you have accounted for everything that you should. However, sometimes there are accidents, miss calculation is, and things that you just didn’t consider that may surprise you. Always make sure that you have an emergency fund for these losses, to put you in the best position you can be. Success doesn’t come overnight but making sure you have plenty of insurance, and backup plans will put you in the best place.


Wear and tear

Even the most well-maintained tools, get warm down over time, whether that is vehicles, electrical items, or even the basic things such as computer mouses and keyboards. Eventually, you’ll get used to knowing what where and when, but until then make sure you have a good guess, and a backup plan.


These are all the type of things that shouldn’t take too much of your time and energy as they are only occasional, hopefully, but if you have a fund for them, then you can move on quickly with your business. This saves stress and time on your part.
