Before recording this episode, I was one of those people who did not have a crisis communications plan. 

Now I do… and you should too.

Then, when one hits, the five things to do to handle the crisis.

In a world of social media and cancel culture, creating a crisis communication plan is something every business owner needs to do - whether you’re a team of 1 or 100.
