Why Creatives Need a Business Disaster Recovery Plan With Sally Binard
Mar 04, 2020
Bryan Collins

Do you have a business disaster recovery plan?

Florida Keys-based ceramicist and painter Sally Binard’s home and livelihood were destroyed by Hurricane Irma in September 2017. With her studio and home in ruins, Sally had to start rebuilding her creative business.

Her experiences reveal how many creative people can get ready for the worst... and rebuild after it's over.

In this interview, we cover:

  • How advice from Jack White changed Binard's art
  • Why creative entrepreneurs can achieve more with less
  • How to prepare a business disaster recovery plan
  • The differences in her creative process compared to writers
  • How she balances running a business with the creative process
    And lots more.


Binard is also a former marine biologist. So, I started by asking her why she decided to move away from that career and start a creative business in the first place.
