Saving Your Business

It’s a Philadelphia phenomenon. A snowstorm hits, and we all make a run on the supermarket to buy out the bread, milk and eggs.

But what would you do in a real emergency, asks Sayde Ladov, Chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association. If you’re a small business owner, what’s your equivalent of milk and eggs? Fact is, 25% of businesses don’t reopen after a disaster.

“Whether the disaster is natural or man-made, there will be no federal bailout to save you,” she adds. “Business owners, both large and small, must develop the skills to save themselves, especially in this economy.”

That’s why the Philadelphia Bar Association, in partnership with the Center City District, is sponsoring a series of free workshops for Philadelphia-area businesses. The workshops are led and coordinated by the Philadelphia Office of Emergency Management.
