Only the simplest of microbusinesses can survive without modern technology, and this means that we need to be on top of our tech and making sure that it continues to serve our business’s needs all day, every day.
But unless you’re in the IT business, it’s extremely unlikely that you’ll have the skills to maintain your systems and solutions.
Even if you could, it wouldn’t be the best use of your time, so the best practice is to hire a managed service provider (MSP) as your technology partner.
But just like any relationship, if you pick up a good technology partner, you can wind up married for life.
Find a bad one, and a tearful breakup will be just around the corner.
