August 24th, 2001. A jumbo jet with no power or controls over the open ocean. 150 miles from the nearest airport! The laws of physics say landing is impossible. Certain doom?

It was a historic, miraculous episode which has many lessons about having a "Plan B" in BUSINESS for when things stop going according to plan...

Amazing things can happen when you plan for the worst and hope for the best! This is especially true when it comes to sales and marketing. www dot unitedcareerfairs dot com.

Thanks Joseph, though I will leave the title to the likes of Ludlum, Forsythe, King and Harper Lee (author of my favorite work of all time: "To Kill a Mockingbird").

Yoni,

Great article! Captivated me from beginning to end. I know of some small business owners who just make Plan A, cross their fingers and pray hard without considering making a back up plan. Your blog certainly hit the right nerve. Thanks!

Ruth,

Thanks so much! I'm glad you liked the article. It stemmed from a TV show we saw last night about the incident...it seemed natural to write the article. It is a captivating story.

Yoni, again you've impressed the heck out of me.

The standard article might have been '5 Reasons to Have a Plan B In Business'. Ho hum.

Again, you have far surpassed that with real world examples, research that is evident you did and a style that makes it so enjoyable to read.

You are the future of the business blog - I'm just waiting for the others to take notice and catch up!
