  • Planning To Survive: Disaster Preparedness For Small Businesses

    Jun 16, 2015

    After a natural disaster or catastrophic accident, most news stories focus on individuals and families who suffered injuries, lost their homes or property, or lost loved ones. But after a few days, the TV cameras move on, and there is little exploration of the economic damage that emerges in the days and weeks that follow.

  • Organizing Your Business with Google

    Jun 16, 2015

    Let me start out by saying that I love Google. I work with their applications all day, every day for both personal and work and here’s why. I’m rather paranoid.

    John M. Collins Jr. is the President and Founder of the Forensic Foundations Group.
