Hey, Richard, great episode! Thanks for highlighting the importance of having your business documented and everything that goes in, on, and around. I remembered reading in a forum before about some owners and administrators complaining about how several of their product consultants refuse to hand out some necessary information concerning their clients when the services are and contracts are over. They are going through an eye-of-a-needle situation all because they neglected the need of having their own information documented on their own. And now, asking for the said information is like pulling out teeth. Our company is big on documenting too, especially with our processes and important information such as passwords and email accounts. Maybe one of your listeners can find this resources helpful: https://www.process.st/processes-for-it-msps/ it's about some templates on how you can better document your business. :)
