Don’t Make This $10,000-An-Hour Mistake
If your network fails or you experience a power outage, your business will come to a screeching halt. You’re not making sales or communicating with clients. You’re basically inaccessible until everything comes back online.
Over 50% of businesses take more than one hour to get back up after a crash or power outage. And who knows how long the outage may last. Each hour down is an estimated loss of $10,000. While power outages are a major contributor to downtime and lost money, other causes include failing or aging technology and buggy applications.
You don’t want to put yourself in a position where downtime becomes an expensive risk. What can you do? Get a monitoring service! Monitoring services can keep tabs on your infrastructure and report their status 24/7. You’ll know what’s working and what’s not, and you’ll be able to respond to issues faster. That equals less downtime and less money lost.

6 Things Successful People Do Right Before Going To Bed
Read – Many of the world’s most successful people are big readers. They take time every night to read, which sharpens creative and critical thinking skills.
Avoid Technology – They shut off electronic devices and let the brain relax. Blue light from our devices, including TVs and smartphones, makes it hard for our brain to prepare for sleep and can be very disruptive.
Walk – A few minutes of walking just before bed helps to reduce stress and anxiety. Walking is another great way to decompress after a long day.
Make Lists – We all have things we need to do tomorrow. Writing these tasks down gives our brains one less thing to think about, which equals better sleep.
Meditate – Ten minutes of meditation can do the mind and body good. Apps like Calm can help you focus and achieve inner peace before bed.
Reflect – Specifically, reflect on what went well. Going to bed with positive thoughts is a great way to elevate your mood and stay motivated. Keep a gratitude journal and write down what went well that day before going to bed.
