How to Hurricane and Earthquake Proof Your Business
Last Update: September 09, 2017

In light of the many different hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes and other natural disasters happening all over the world, I would like to discuss a surefire way in how to hurricane and earthquake proof your business. By doing this you will not have to worry about your earnings being effected.

THIS WORKS FOR THOSE WITH AND WITHOUT A BUSINESS OF THEIR OWN

Start your own online business, if you do not have your own business, and build a website version of a brick and mortar business you may already have. When you are able to make money in any kind of online business that fulfills orders electronically, no natural disaster will stop you from earning money.

Having an internet based business such as online affiliate marketing, where you do not even need to own or warehouse any products, you generate your income and get paid over the internet. The internet is global in nature and is not permanently effected by any kind of natural disaster.

Now if you happen to sell products that you are warehousing yourself, a natural disaster can and will interrupt the shipment of those goods. But this hiccup in the buy and sell process would only be temporary and even nonexistent if you are able to set up drop shipping with your suppliers.

But if you wish to sell any kind of products that can be totally fulfilled over the internet, having your own website either in affiliate marketing online or an ecommerce website utilizing drop shipping, can operate 24/7 without any interruptions. This means you can make money from anywhere in the world regardless of the current local situation.

WHERE CAN YOU GET EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN?

There is only one place that I know of, and many of you reading this know of as well, that will provide you with everything you need for success. The only thing they do not give you is your ability to follow directions, to be patient and to be determined to reach your goals.

Wealthy Affiliate is that place and though you will learn how affiliate marketing online works from the ground up, you can also learn many other aspects of internet marketing. You do not have to create an affiliate marketing website at Wealthy Affiliate, you could make an ecommerce website if you want.

The choice you make for the type of website you wish to create can all happen within the online training and internet business building platform known as Wealthy Affiliate. Once you have built your website business and start making money with it, you no longer have to worry how you will earn a living should something catastrophic happens.

A brick and mortar business you may own or even one you work for, if the building that the business resides in becomes damaged or destroyed, your ability to earn money stops. But by having a website business your earnings will continue, which will be a blessing because you will still have income.

Thanks Loes. I just happened to be watching the news and heard someone mention that many people will be out of work for weeks if not more because of the damage.

I thought to myself, if that was me I would still have income even if I couldn't do any work. Thanks to WA many people can have that peace of mind too.

Great stuff Robert!
Now we just have to figure out a way to protect the servers from a potential EMP attack.
Where is the WA server anyway?

In March 2016 they where here, don't know if they have been moved since then:

WA servers are located in Ashburn VA, in the United Sates

Thank you for that info Marith.

Yes, an EMP is probably the one thing that could actually shut down the internet or severely disrupt it for quite some time.

Hi Robert,
I like your ideology and methodology. It will surely make most of us to seat-up and mean business. Thanks

You are welcome. When you think about it, having an internet business that is your main source of income, most natural disasters that would halt the income of others would not apply to the internet marketer.

I like the way you have used that picture of hurricane to convey an important message that we can all relate to. Thank you Robert.

You are welcome Paul. A brick and mortar business can be easily wiped out by either a massive flood, a wildfire, or even an earthquake. But when our business is on the internet, those disasters will have no effect.

I imagine if your niche is survival gear, supplies and emergency equipment it might be a good start to "riding out the storm" financially. WA is definitely the place to learn how to go about it!
Reply

That would be a bonus Hal. Survival gear is a profitable niche, especially in this day and age. WA is definitely the place to get a niche business like this up and running.

You are welcome Meredith. I hope things are getting back to a little more normalcy in TX. When we can earn our living online it makes it easier to know that we can still get income without having to go anywhere.

When it come to everything that we have access to here at WA, it is normally because of our own actions that holds us back.

That's right, and through affiliate marketing we can also help our colleagues and friends that have been affected by the hurricanes by supporting their websites :)

When opportunity knocks we must be ready to open the door. Most people are overwhelmingly excited until they just freak out. We must be ready to receive when that day comes and knock on out door.

The only thing that could bring down the internet would be a world-wide EMP pulse.
