brass plaque on ship says WHEELHOUSE

Know Your Wheelhouse

Imagine this: Your computer hard drive crashes. You hadn’t done a backup recently. Everything you need is on that computer. What do you do?

Do you spend days researching how to recover lost data (days when you are not doing your own job)?

Then, do you attempt to recover your lost data on your own (potentially making it truly unrecoverable)?

Or, do you call the computer repair guy and let him/her handle it quickly and thoroughly?

Unless your business and expertise is computer repair you have NO business trying to do this yourself.

You might actually succeed, but it will take you at least 5 times longer than the expert.

That will be hours and hours away from what you actually do to make money.

False economies will never save you time (or money).
