Just a quick post to explain why you haven’t heard from me for a couple of weeks or so.
Firstly, I was away in London at a special event on Thursday 22nd January so the preparations leading up to this and some stuff I had to do afterwards held me up somewhat. I’ll mention this a little more in my next post.
Secondly (and this is the biggie), the hard drive in my laptop had mechanical failure. Everything’s on my laptop – all my training programs, my products I’m working on, my website stuff, personal files, etc. Everything! Now, this leads me on to an important point…
ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR STUFF!!
This is something that I should know only too well, especially considering my background as a PC engineer, however it’s something that I still don’t do stringently enough. I did have a large part of my work, files, etc backed up but an enormous amount wasn’t.
So I’ve spent the last week or so having to get my laptop up and running again and am currently in the process of retrieving what I can from my wrecked hard drive. Fortunately it is still functioning sufficiently that I am (so far) able to access and retrieve what I need to, but this is a gargantuan task that I envisage still taking me some days yet to complete.
Finally, this weekend I’ll be away at a private mastermind event with Dean Holland and a small group of fellow iPro Partners. This should be a welcome distraction of the stresses of this last week and I’m sure that I’ll come away with good stuff that I can implement in what I’m doing and, in turn, pass on to my visitors and subscribers.
So, all being well, I’ll have a proper blog post up next week as usual.
Until next week,
