How Does a Business Survive a Riot?
A shop owner in Baltimore asks you for advice about saving his store. He’d like to survive the night.. and this weekend. Assume he does not have insurance and can not walk away from his convenience store. His store is a stand alone building several blocks from the first riots. What should he do given 72 hours to prepare?
As usual, planning makes the mission easier. What should store owners in other cities learn from the experience in Baltimore and Ferguson? What would a reasonable business plan include given weeks to plan for such emergencies?
Some store owners have financial resources. Other owners might only have $10k to spend. What would you tell them to do?
