(Vol. 2  Steve Kaplan – Method To Survive & Prosper)

Make sure your suppliers are solid financially. This is no time to tell your customers that you can’t get their goods on time because your supplier went belly up.”

I think Steve’s method is great, because it causes business owners to make sure they don’t live with a false security because everything in their business is solid. 

If you have suppliers of any kind this is the time to make sure they will be there when you need them.  Otherwise the solid ground your business is standing on could become quicksand very quickly.

Check up and see what you can find out about your suppliers.  The internet is a good place to start. Google your suppliers name.  Google any info on them in the news, etc.

Steve Kaplan is a two-time New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Business Week Best Selling author, author of the Benjamin Franklin award winner as the business book of the year, noted business owner and expert, and captivating public speaker. Steve is sought after by companies such as AT&T, Oracle, Walgreen’s and Panasonic to deliver keynote speeches and workshops.
