Carol Tice writes over at Entrepreneur that planning for the crash is something large organizations do well. Her background in risk management gives her a good perspective, though I’d argue that plenty of large organizations have missed this lesson, too.

Jim Collins, author of Good to Great, Built to Last and How the Mighty Fall, definitely believes this. Barry interviewed him recently, and he said:
“As soon as you can, I mean before you grow really big, your first priority should be to reach a point where you have enough cash that you could go a whole year without revenues if you had to because someday, you might have to.”
