Some folks like to ask me that morbid hypothetical, “If it’s just you, what happens when you get hit by a bus?”
Do I mind when they ask that? Nah. Their heart’s in the right place, even if their full-spectrum risk calculus is not.
(In case you're wondering, the short answer to that question is that CA will continue to run for as long as anyone cares that it does. This is assured first and foremost because it's profitable as a business and stable as a software platform; more on both below.)
Beyond that for more concrete, tactical terms of what happens, there exists an 11 page document literally titled "How to Run CoachAccountable If John Is Dead". It's been suitably shared with next of kin. Why just 11 pages? It's not a matter of it being negligently sparse, but rather because the operation of CoachAccountable is so mercifully simple (a happy byproduct of its having been created by a lone individual).
It’s good to consider and weigh risks when making a decision. But cherry picking the pithy ones does little to give you a true assessment of risk.
So let’s consider the broader gamut of risks when choosing a platform to run your business. In doing so we can examine how the deal on offer with CoachAccountable stacks up against more conventional companies that are NOT just one dude.
Let’s look at the ballpark odds over the next 5-10 years.
Yes, I might get hit by a bus. There's a plan for it.
It's wise to consider that.
it's wise to consider the other, statistically more salient, risks, too. :)
