Preparing our businesses for the unpredictability of life

Hi Bootstrappers,

My co-host, Ed, had an accident last weekend while on a pleasant cycling trip. He broken his jaw, which is now wired shut for a few weeks while he recovers.

It is hard to talk (or even to eat) when your jaw is wired shut. So this week's episode is a solo episode; it is just me behind the microphone.

Ed's accident got me musing on the unpredictability of life, and what we can partly do to make ourselves - personally, and business-wise - resilient when the unexpected happens.

I then do an abrupt change in topic, and issue a challenge for you to do pricing experiment.

If you do the pricing experiment I describe in your business, please do let me know that you are trying it! Just reply to this email.

Listen to this week's episode of Bootstrapped.fm.

Until next time,

Steve McLeod
